Discomfort Is Expected
It’s normal—and necessary—to feel uncomfortable during the process.
To build your skills for change, practice working with discomfort.
Think of a time in your life when you overcame a major physical or mental challenge.
Maybe that was finishing grad school. Building a house. Giving birth. Or trying a new activity that scared you.
How hard was that for you?
If you’re like most people, you were uncomfortable. You wanted to quit 100 times in the middle of it.
Now, you can reflect back on the person you became afterwards. Thanks to that challenge, maybe you’re stronger, wiser, more insightful and experienced.
If you’re here reading this, you can point back to that challenge and say:
I survived that. I did that.
That’s confidence. Discomfort and challenge is necessary to trust that you can grow, improve, and change.
Without discomfort, there’s no change.
In order to lose fat, sometimes you’ll be hungry. In order to get stronger, sometimes you’ll be tired in the gym. In order to transform your body, sometimes you’ll be uncomfortable.
It’s necessary and expected. Managing discomfort is a skill that can be practiced. The more you can stay strong and focused through discomfort, the more change you can withstand.
After observing O Sensei, the founder of Aikido, sparring with an accomplished fighter, a young student said to the master, “You never lose your balance. What is the secret?”
“You are wrong,” replied O Sensei. “I am constantly losing my balance. My skill lies in my ability to regain it.”
