“Comfort is overrated. Because being quiet is comfortable. Keeping things the way they’ve been is comfortable. And all comfort has done is maintain the status quo. So we’ve got to get comfortable with being uncomfortable by speaking these hard truths when they’re necessary.”
If you struggle to speak up for yourself or others, this 10-minute video just may change your life.
This Luvvie Ajayi TED Talk makes a powerful case for why you have to get comfortable with being uncomfortable and suggests you ask yourself three questions the next time you find yourself holding back your thoughts or your voice.
The questions include, “Do you mean it?,” “Can you defend it?,” and “Can you say it with love?”
