You never know what you’re capable of unless you try. Every time you say no to something you want to do, you’re missing out on a potential opportunity to grow!
The longer we avoid something, the scarier it tends to become. When something scares you, sometimes the best thing you can do is jump right in.
Embracing Discomfort in 2021
It’s time to become comfortable with being uncomfortable.
Be curious. Try new things. Keep an open mind and see what happens.
When you continue to do the same things, you will continue to get the same results.
Just because something isn’t working right now doesn’t mean it’ll never work. You just may have to go about it in a slightly different way.
The Mind is an Incredible Tool
Our mind is such a powerful tool. It lets us know when things are dangerous and when we should walk away.
However, sometimes our mind can play tricks on us and make us think things are scarier than they actually are.
Here’s an example.
Let’s say you stumbled across an ad online for your dream job.
The job is close to home and pays well, but your mind keeps telling you that you aren’t qualified and shouldn’t even try.
No matter what you do in life, there is always a chance things won’t work out.
“You can’t let your fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.” – Babe Ruth
Just because something feels impossible does not mean it is. Feelings are not facts.
You Are In Charge Of Your Thoughts
You have more control over your thoughts than you give yourself for.
You are in charge of your mind; your mind is not in charge of you.
The next time a negative thought pops into your head, don’t accept it. Challenge it!
The process may make you feel uncomfortable at first, but it will be worth it in the long run!
