The world can seem so troublesome, full of pain, suffering, and stressful situations. Everyone seems to be on a steady diet of discomfort. Well, at least everyone who is going somewhere with their lives. People who never go outside their comfort zone have trouble finding their way to new places. Practicing the art of comfort on vacations or at places like a G2O salon in Boston is a natural and important part of life. However, too much of a good thing can lead people to stagnancy. Most people avoid discomfort like the plague. They will do anything in their power to avoid leaving their comfort zone. Maybe the human brain interprets all discomfort as potential harm or death to the body.
Personal Growth Is a Choice
This aversion to discomfort can stop someone from reaching their goals. To go somewhere you’ve never been before, you’re going to have to do something different. Changing things almost always brings about discomfort. But it also brings growth. Even children receive physical growing pains as their body grows and changes. Why is it so difficult to accept and conquer the discomfort that comes with achieving new goals and finding success? Physical growth isn’t optional. It happens no matter how hard a child may dislike the process. Personal growth is a choice.
Hammer Away at Your Weakness
If you have goals that need reaching, make a choice. Choose to embrace your discomfort. Get used to it and relish in the fact that you are going somewhere with your personal goals. A good strategy is to mix in healthy amounts of comfort and discomfort in your life. Spend your whole week working diligently toward your goals. Try new things and embrace the discomfort that will cause. Take the blacksmith’s hammer of discomfort and pound away at your weaknesses until they become malleable. Then forge your weaknesses into strengths with the heat of experience and hammer blows of determination. Once you’ve spent the whole weak hammering away at your weaknesses, you should be pretty exhausted. Recover and prepare for the next week by getting comfortable however you like. Read a book in a hot bath or visit a G2O salon in Boston. You deserve it!
