Who wants to be uncomfortable? NOBODY!
But being uncomfortable in a constructive sense, means thatyouíre developing and growing!
Letís illustrate this.
Hereís an example of two people. One by the name of Jerry, and the other bythe name of Bill.
Example 1: BILL
Bill dreams of a great social life. Bill also has social anxiety and is scaredstiff in approaching other people. Hecanít do this when grocery shopping, when taking his kids to a soccer game, oreven when wanting to ask a girl out on a date. Bill also avoids picking up phone calls, and goes out his way to notmake friends. Heís had a gym membershipfor 3 years and has only gone 10 times! He hates doing anything social and would rather be comfortable and safeat home.
Example 2: JERRY
Jerry also has social anxiety, and has the same fears asBill.
Jerry has been doing research on his anxieties, and isdetermined to change his life. He knowsthat he canít achieve his life goals or dreams without other people. So, he makes it a goal to see as many peopleas possible. He purposely works out atthe gym every day in the afternoon during rush hour. He makes it a goal to say hi to 5 people aday, and start conversations with 2 of them. He signed up for classes at his gym; Yoga and Weight Training. Jerryís even made a facebook page. Heís doing all he can to improve his chancesof success in creating his dream social life.
Now, who do you think will achieve SUCCESS faster?
Of course, Jerry! Heís modified his environment with desire boosters, and made acommitment to change his mind set in regards to people and socializing. WhereasBill is hung up in his old ways and is resistant to change.
Getting out of your comfort zone may be uncomfortable now, butthe more uncomfortable you get now the more comfortable youíll be later!
