We all have times in our lives where we feel discomfort.  When discomfort comes up for you, how do you handle it?  Are you afraid of feeling discomfort?  Are you able to move through your feelings of discomfort?  Are you willing to do the uncomfortable things in your life that cause you to feel discomfort?  Most of the clients I work with don’t like the feeling of discomfort, and they find all kinds of different ways to avoid these feelings, but what I have found with so many of my clients is that the more they can choose to be uncomfortable, the more they are able to achieve the things they truly want in their lives.  Ready to find out how you can let feeling a little discomfort get you more in your life?  Let’s dive in…

 

When you think about a time when you felt discomfort in something you needed to do, were you afraid to feel that discomfort?  Let’s say, for example, you have an opportunity to give a presentation that would help you achieve more in your career, but you definitely feel uncomfortable about saying yes.  Maybe you would have had thoughts that brought up even more fear, like, what if I don’t do a good job? What will people think about me? What if nobody finds the presentation engaging?  All of these uncomfortable feelings may have you decide to say no to the opportunity, but you might find yourself always wondering what would have happened if you had given the presentation.

 

What if I told you that you need to feel the uncomfortable things in your life to actually get what you really want to have in your life?  When people are dedicated to reaching their goals, they are willing to put themselves in challenging situations.  Have you ever asked yourself why you are not where you want to be in your life?  Let’s say, for example, you want to lose 10 pounds.  To achieve this goal, you will probably have to feel some discomfort, and you’ll have to fight the urges that you have to eat things when it is not in the best interest of you reaching your goal.  Would you be able to move through these uncomfortable situations so that you are able to lose the 10 pounds you are aiming for?  If not, where does that leave you?  This situation can be applied to most of the goals we have in our lives, and as high-stress professionals, we are already dealing with a lot of discomfort in our lives, making it even harder to endure more discomfort to get what we want.

 

The more that we can choose to be uncomfortable and put ourselves out there, the more we decide to try new things and keep doing them even if we are failing, the more successful we will be.  If you want to reach more of the goals in your life, you need to embrace the discomfort.  It’s the key to living the life you truly want. 

 

So, what causes all of the discomfort we are feeling? Why do we hold ourselves back from allowing those uncomfortable feelings? And what can we do to embrace the discomfort and do it anyway?  It’s pretty simple, and there are only two things you need to know…
