Get Comfortable with Being Uncomfortable

Tony Robbins says that Progress = Happiness. In order to be happy we need to feel that we are constantly making progress in all aspects of our lives: in our relationships, our career or business, our finances, our health. In order to make progress we need to grow.

Where does growth happen? When you go to the gym do you pick up the same weights everyday to get stronger? No – you pickup a heavier weight that is uncomfortable at first. But after a few days that weight is now easier and you go for the next one. Growth happens right outside your comfort zone.

Are you afraid to make that call? Pickup the phone and just do it. Taking action will grow your comfort zone. Next time you gotta make an uncomfortable call you won’t even hesitate or even realize because it’s not uncomfortable anymore. That is progress.

To grow we need to get comfortable with being uncomfortable
