The world belongs to the discontented

The person who was seen as most likely to succeed at your final year of school didn’t change the world. Not yet, probably not ever.

They’ve already had too much success in the early years. Too many congratulations, too many girlfriends, too many party invites, too many A’s on their report card. And so they’ve missed out on the most important ingredient anyone needs to succeed. Hardship.

The harder we have it, the more likely we are to change it. It’s only when we have a level of discontentment that we’ll ever develop the fire inside the belly that is needed to create a better situation.

    I completely agree Steve and proud to be discontent. It’s just annoying how discontentment goes hand-in-hand with frustration😉

      The really important thing is that we use this to motivate us into change.

    I totally agree as well. I started a business because I was totally irritated by deficient processes in previous companies I work for. I knew I could do better, so I went out on my own.
