Lewis Howes on The Dangers of The Good Life EP 1466

aspire to live not just a good life but a great life

Today, we’re going to talk about the dangers of the good life. Maybe you’ve worked your entire life to reach the “good life”. You’ve worked hard to reach a level of comfort and safety – and there’s nothing wrong with that. But once you got there, did you ever feel like something was missing? Did you ever feel unfulfilled, or there was something more out there waiting for you?

When we strive to reach comfort, our safety can often leave us with a scarcity mindset because we’re afraid of losing what we worked so hard for. I respect that, but I also believe that we were meant for SO MUCH MORE. We were meant to unlock our inner greatness and live fulfilling lives full of love and peace. 

In this episode, I invite you to step outside of your comfort zone. Maybe you’re following a path you think you’re SUPPOSED to be doing, but you know it’s not what you were BORN to do. Maybe you were on the right path for a season, and now your story has taken an unexpected turn. Wherever you are, you can choose to stay stuck, or choose to break free.

“Comfort isn’t always bad, but when it keeps us from experiencing the fullness of life and exploring our true potential, it may be time for a change.” @lewishowes  

And now let’s jump into episode 1466 of The School of Greatness!

“You are the only person who can give yourself what you want and you must be willing to do the work every day.” @lewishowes  

Some Questions I Ask:

  • How can you start to reconnect with your standard so that you separate what you should want from what you really want?
  • Do you ever feel like something is missing from your life?
  • Do you ever feel unfulfilled, or that there is something more out there waiting for you?
  • Are you ready to step out of your comfort zone?
  • What is the difference between a “good” life and a “GREAT” life?

In this episode, you will learn:

  • What is “the good life” we’re taught by modern culture? Let’s define that.
  • Why so many people are lacking a sense of purpose.
  • How having a meaningful mission will end the temptation to endlessly wander aimlessly.
  • Lewis’s personal story of finding his meaningful mission from a very low point.
  • Why comfort isn’t always bad, and when to embrace and celebrate your wins.
  • Plus much more…
