Do you want to grow as a person, find success, and change your life for the better?
Then allow yourself to be uncomfortable.
Face your fears and do the things that scare you.
Venture into the unknown and discover new things.
Go beyond the safety net and be uncomfortable.
When was the last time that you intentionally did something that made your stomach turn, your knees weak and your palms sweat?
If you can’t recall when, then you’re not making yourself uncomfortable enough to test your limits and grow.
But that’s okay – for it is human nature to avoid risks and stay within our comfort zone.
However, know that it is difficult or almost impossible to take ourselves to the “next level” without getting uncomfortable in the process.
So how do you allow yourself to be uncomfortable?
By trying out new things…
… like learning that craft or skill you’ve always wanted to have. Be a student hungry for knowledge. Commit the time to train.
By facing your fears…
… specially the fear of failure. Be courageous and persistent. Know that each mistake you do only brings you one step closer to success.
By having something important at stake…
… like your reputation. Take a challenge and announce it to the world. Be accountable. Accept responsibility.
Take an inventory of your life and write down the things you want to change. Dig within and identify what’s truly stopping you from making that change. Then create a plan and tell the people around you to expect that change to happen for you.
That’s how you become uncomfortable…
That’s how you achieve things, which you thought was impossible.
