Welcome to the discomfort zone.
A place you visit infrequently for all too short periods of time.
Today however, we’re going to get comfortable with discomfort.
Is that even possible?
It absolutely is when you lean into discomfort instead of resisting.
It takes leaning into it intentionally because mostly, we’ll do anything to avoid discomfort.
“Discomfort means you’re doing something that others were unlikely to do, because they’re hiding out in the comfortable zone.” – Seth Godin
Einstein said, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over, expecting a different result.”
I say discomfort is a result of doing something new.
Every time you say yes to something new, discomfort arises.
And resistance is never far behind.
Your resistance will look like reasons:
- why you shouldn’t move forward
- why it was a bad idea in the first place
- why you should go back to what you were doing before.
So many reasons lulling you to sleep and inaction.
Your lizard brain is like that; it will say anything to get you to stop.
Except, you keep having these thoughts and dreams. . .
Dreams so wondrous they make your heart race.
Trust those dreams, and yourself to take the next step.
