How willing are you to be uncomfortable?Nov 03, 2022
Ever thought about your willingness to be uncomfortable?
That’s something few people think about.
After all, why would anyone want to, or choose to, be uncomfortable?
We tend to do quite the opposite - try to stay comfortable.
And given the number of distractions that give us instant gratification, choosing discomfort seems even more out of sync with reality.
But what if everything you want in life is yours directly proportional to the amount of discomfort you are unwilling to feel?
Contrary to popular belief, we are not on this planet having this human experience to be comfortable.
We are here to grow and become the fullness of who we are.
And growth does require some discomfort.
I strongly believe I have everything I want in life because of my willingness to be uncomfortable, to delay gratification and to live like no one else so I can live like no one else.
The great news is you get to choose the amount of growth (aka discomfort) you are willing to accept.
Everything in nature is either growing or dying.
If your need to remain comfortable is greater than your willingness to be uncomfortable, that is a sign that you are not choosing growth.
Whatever you want in life requires some degree of growth, challenge, perseverance and patience.
If you are not growing, what you want will remain just out of reach.
Because it’s not the thing you truly want, it’s the person you become as you grow into the person who has that thing.
Your desires and yearnings are there to ensure your growth to become the full manifestation of you.
You might think the path of comfort is easier, but that’s a convenient lie. It is just as hard as the path of discomfort because comfort without growth has its own source of pain.
So inch into a willingness to be uncomfortable to enjoy your dream life.
Give yourself permission to make mistakes, be vulnerable and take imperfect action. It’s how we learn, grow and become.
We all seek authentic relationships and desire to be more authentically ourselves, yet we hide, not taking the action we need to be true to ourselves and congruent with what we claim matters most to us.
If you want success in any form – breaking through perceived limitations, experiencing “positive” feelings more often, feeling more confident, or whatever success means to you – you have to increase the uncomfortable factor in your life.
Step out of your comfort zone, even just a little. Do what scares you. Listen to the voice within guiding you to be, do, have, create or experience the fullness of life.
And if you are not quite sure what that looks like, let’s talk!
It's worth it because YOU are worth it.
Live. Love. Laugh. It matters because YOU matter.
Is there something holding you back? Do you feel stuck, ashamed, unlovable, unworthy or depressed? Do you long to transform your life and create what you truly desire most?
