Discomfort Isn't So Uncomfortable After All
"The constant façade of order hides the wilderness that is craving to seep out and teach us that life wasn't created to be what we think it is.
We must experience the wilderness to be taught what cannot be otherwise known."
-Dr. Serene Jones-
When we work out for just a few days or, lift very light weights sometimes, we won't see any changes in our bodies. Likewise, choosing the warm and comfy feeling under the blankets, well after the alarm clock sounds, will never be a good choice if we want to be out the door on time; therefore, if we choose comfort, we will never reach our full potential.
"Order is what we should fear the most because what makes us comfortable, can destroy us, but what makes us uncomfortable, is the only way, we will grow."
- Bill Eckstrom-
When we choose to select discomfort, or to go outside the box, we can discover that our willingness to accept and face discomfort, will dictate our growth.
It is easier said than done, yes that is true, but is a lot more difficult not to do the hard things in life, because we will pay the high price of wasted time. Life brings challenges and opportunities, every single day. It is up to us to either hide behind our feelings of " I don't feel like waking up early on a Saturday morning to go out for a run," or face every day with determination, either we feel like it or not.
" Discipline equals freedom."
- Jocko Willink
