...comfort and convenience.
When we get what we want, we're comfortable, and when we get it how and when we want it, it's convenient.
Isn't that culturally what it means to be successful?
If we were to read between the lines, comfort and convenience are code words for control.
When I'm in control, I feel "happy."
Therein lies the challenge, control and transformation are like oil and water, they don't mix well.
The two basic requirements for transformation absolutely contradict our measurements of success: pain and surrender.
Pain is at least half of what it means to transform and surrender is about the willingness to embody and endure that pain.
