This week there has been a whirlwind of activity with wrapping-up the school year! Ella finished her first year of pre-school and Jude finished kindergarten! Here is a picture of us celebrating with a lunch out on Jude’s last day 🙂
Being comfortable feeling uncomfortable comes up a lot in business. When we do new things we’re being stretched out of our comfort zones. If you really want to be successful and achieve your goals, this is a must. You have to push yourself through these feelings and do it anyway. I tell my clients what a mentor of mine shared with me once – when you’re nervous, think of service. If you think about how many more people you can help the more you get out there, it will give you the strength to feel the fear and do it anyway. Read on to learn more about doing just that 🙂
“Be Comfortable Feeling Uncomfortable”
I love this statement because it’s all about stretching yourself out of your comfort zone and being comfortable with it on a continuous basis. In order to grow and learn, you must be willing to take risks and plow through your fears. Moving forward and doing new things can be scary, but if you don’t do it you will be left feeling stagnant and likely with a lot of regret.
So “getting comfortable with being uncomfortable”, has become my motto. After doing so many new and “scary” things over the past few years and continuing to do so, I’m now good with feeling the fear and doing it anyway. I almost come to expect it when I’m doing something new! It always subsides and then I’m on to the next thing 🙂
Another point that comes to mind is flexibility. I am a true believer that setting goals is important for creating your ideal lifestyle. Without taking action, you won’t move forward. However, staying flexible within that process is equally important. If you are familiar with the law of attraction, then you understand that we’re not supposed to worry about the “how” portion of it coming to fruition.
Setting the intention, trusting it will happen and letting go of attachment (control of the how), and then taking inspired action is how it works. You still need to take action, but the difference between having such a tight grip on figuring things out and inspired action, is that you “let go and let it flow”! Meaning you trust it will happen and then release the idea. From there you pay attention to any people, circumstances, events and ideas that you have that will enable you to achieve your goals 🙂
It can be scary to let go of control. Just having faith that it will work out AND being okay with that is a huge part of it actually happening. If you are so focused on “how” to make it happen, the opportunity to make it happen can pass you right by. Being flexible and having that “go with the flow” attitude can feel uncomfortable at first. This too shall pass and will give you the practice and experience to tackle the next goal with more ease and confidence 🙂
