One of the biggest challenges in achieving success is learning to be uncomfortable. Whenever we try anything new, we push up against our comfort zone and growing edge. That’s where our comfort level ends, and where the new and different await.
To discover the new, you have to push past your existing mental and emotional boundaries and into uncharted territory. When you do, you will naturally experience discomfort. You might be tempted to turn back, but to achieve great things, you can’t allow discomfort to dissuade you. The ability to move to the new in spite of fear separates the successful from the average.
Getting comfortable with being uncomfortable can be difficult, but if you test your boundaries and store up a few wins, it will become easier each time you stretch beyond your perceived limits.
