Being Uncomfortable Is a Part of Achieving Your Dreams
Many aspects of pushing forward towards success involve getting out of your comfort zone. Your whole life, you may have very well been somewhat sheltered from major changes or have gotten used to just going with the flow in life.
This kind of mindset doesn’t work so well for being successful and changing the things that you’ve known your whole life can be a scary jump to make. However, everyone goes through it at some point.
Being uncomfortable may seem like a bad thing, but there are positive aspects to it. When you’re nervous, it means that you know you’re doing something that you wouldn’t normally do.
This is a step forward – you’re doing something out of character – and knowing this means progress is being made. You’re no longer stuck in that same rut – you’re changing things up.
If I could give advice to my younger self it would be ‘don’t have a comfort zone’. Having a comfort zone creates a barrier in your life that you have to break through every time you want to make progress and change.
You should know that going on your journey towards success, you’ll face a lot of adversity and struggles. There will be times when you’re upset, feeling stuck, and feeling uncertain.
However, those negative feelings are greatly outweighed by the feeling of accomplishment you get when you start to reach your goals. Eventually, you can learn to embrace the nervousness and the worries that come with taking on something unfamiliar.
Even if you have to force a smile at first, you’ll soon find yourself loving being in new situations and enjoying the new opportunities available that can help you succeed. You’ll finally be breaking up the monotony of everyday life with new, refreshing experiences.
There are many people that claim that nothing worth having comes easily and the same can be said for your path to success. You’re trying to retake your life and change it for the better.
This is a daunting task, because you’ve spent so much time in your old, less fulfilling life. You don’t know whether or not you’ll succeed in this new mindset and lifestyle.
However, isn’t it much better to have at least tried?
Even if you don’t become successful with a new strategy and outlook on life…. you’ll be happier knowing that you did give it your all, with no regrets later in life about not having tried.
But let’s stick to being in a positive mindset and focus on your potential successes.
Just imagine….you’ll finally be able to live that life you’ve always dreamed of.
