In 1987, Phillip Moffitt walked away from his highly successful position of CEO and editor-in-chief of Esquire magazine to walk a more spiritual path. His friends and colleagues thought he was crazy to sell the magazine at the height of its success and leave all that “security” behind.
Granted, it can become especially difficult to follow your heart when you are well established in another career, nestled snugly in your comfort zone, enjoying a comfortable lifestyle. So why take the chance? Here’s Moffitt’s response, which nails it:
The resistance to change one’s life when you’re successful is incredible. It means giving up something known, to take the chance of achieving something unknown that will provide greater satisfaction. This resistance is why most people only change their life as a result of failure. That’s really unfortunate. Life is so short and offers such diversity that repeating anything for a lifetime, no matter how successful, is ultimately a failure in imagination.
