Get Comfortable With Being Uncomfortable
The greatest accomplishment in personal development is learning how to face your fear(s) while being comfortable. People who take the easy route work to avoid discomfort. Unfortunately, some people who have great potential and capability are hinder in success due to their fear.
All danger is real. However, the fear of the danger is not real. Fear has been described as False Evidence Appearing Real. Our imagination becomes overactive when the thought of the possible consequence is visualized. The discomfort is believing the worst will happen. In reflection and after the fact, things are not as bad as they seem. So, how does one feel comfortable while being in a dis-comfortable situation.
SEEK GOOD COUNSEL. Before initiating any large endeavor, one should seek the advice of those who have demonstrated wisdom and your best interest in the past.
FOCUS ON THE GOAL. There will sometimes be challenges. One should not think of the worst to happen. Confront the challenge with a solution while keeping your eye on the goal.
RELAX. Worry makes it difficult to sleep. Sleep depravation makes the mind hyperactive and unleashes the imagination. An unleashed imagination loosen our fears.
When you were created, you were given authority over your future. Don't allow fear to prevent you from being victorious in everything. Learn how to feel comfortable in every uncomfortable situation. Then, you will reap the benefits of your labor with joy.
