But lately I've been thinking about being uncomfortable. Not a really popular concept. Even the word makes us feel sort of... well, uncomfortable. As a life coach, I will sometimes ask the question: are you willing to be uncomfortable in this? The reason I ask this question is to find out - how badly do you want this and are you willing to suffer some difficulty in achieving this goal or situation?
Our society is big on making us comfortable. We are taught to run away from discomfort and pain of any sort. However, what I have experienced is that I usually experience more change through things that challenge me. That change can be emotional, spiritual or physical and sometimes all three!
Where would you really like to see change in your life right now? Are you willing to be uncomfortable for a time to get there? Remember that life is a journey full of seasons. Sometimes we are riding in a season of comfort and other times, we are mucking through a challenging season. If you want growth and change in your life, don't fear the difficult. Embrace it and expect good results!
