The poster up there is a very helpful tool, not only for you but admittedly for me as well. I would constantly look at it because it makes me go the extra mile with everything that I do.
Why is acting in spite of discomfort do important? Because "comfortable" is where you are right now. If you want to move into a new level in your life, you must break through your comfort zone and practice doing the things that you are not comfortable.
Ordinary people are not willing to sacrifice that and be uncomfortable. Remember, being comfortable is their biggest priority in life. But the truth is? Being comfortable is overrated. Being comfortable makes you feel warm, fuzzy and secure, but it doesn't allow you to grow and expand your comfort zone.
With everything that's new to you, it feel uncomfortable in the start. That's how it goes. Everything is uncomfortable in the beginning, but if you stick with it and continue, you will eventually move through the 'uncomfort' zone and succeed. Then you will have a 'new' expanded version of yourself, which means you are a bigger person then yesterday.
"THE ONLY TIME YOU ARE GROWING IS WHEN
YOU ARE UNCOMFORTABLE"
From now on, whenever you feel uncomfortable, instead of retreating back into our old comfort zone, pat yourself at the back and say "I must keep on growing", and continue moving forward.
Consciously practice going into your UNCOMFORT ZONE and doing what scares you.
When you S-T-R-E-T-C-H yourself and you expand your comfort zone. Good luck to us! Cheers! :D
