Why Being Uncomfortable is Good
Being uncomfortable can be a real challenge, albeit a good one. I’m talking about the kind of discomfort you experience when you’re trying something new, facing your fears, or being honest about your weaknesses. The kind of discomfort that leads to personal growth.
I really like exploring this topic because the end result is usually worth it. Being able to overcome fears, weaknesses, and new obstacles can be an incredibly rewarding experience.
In order to reach my goals for this year, I’m going to need spend more time getting out of my comfort zone, and this blog is definitely part of that. It's a way for me to share my experiences, my challenges, and my successes with you along the way.
At times I’ll have to be vulnerable and open to the opinions of others like yourself, and I’ll have to set goals for myself that I know aren’t easy to achieve.
I want to share this quote with you that I recently came across about goal setting:
“Set goals so big you can’t achieve them until you grow into the person who can.” – Unknown
It inspires me to know that I could be a better person at the end of this year than I was when it began, and the odds of that happening are really dependent on the decisions that I make along the way.
I also hope to encourage you to take on new challenges, to think differently, and to have more fun than you thought possible this week, this month, and all throughout the year. The greatest part is that you can get started at any time. Right now even!
Spend time with people that inspire you, that support you, and don’t call you out for thinking differently. And even if they do, stay strong, stay true to yourself, and become the person you know you can be.
Let us know what awesome goals you have set for yourself this year and share them below in the comments. We’d love to support you on your journey!
