Almost everything that you really want is just outside your comfort zone. Get comfortable being uncomfortable.
Go get it!
Think about what you REALLY want. Think of all the things you have settled for because you were afraid to leave the security and safety of your comfort zone. Being Successful takes guts. Living your potential means putting yourself out there – being vulnerable.
Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go. – T. S. Eliot
How badly do you want your goals? How big is your vision? How uncomfortable are you willing to be in order to have all the things you DESERVE for your life? For your family?
Remember when Priya talked about “building your discomfort muscles“? Yes, there is a theme here I am trying to get across to you. In order for you to do your best work and to become the best version of YOU, you must not settle in to being comfortable.

I am having a hard time with discomfort right now – my husband was recently diagnosed with diabetes – he seems to be taking it better than I am – finding new ways to cook things has been a major challenge and I admit I have been having a hard time even trying to do that.
This is an interesting read. I liked it very much and it resonates with me very much, as I am sure it does most people. Did you look at the link at the end of the 5 tips to getting out of your comfort zone? It was titled a year of living without. I find that quite intriguing too. What better way to start experimenting with getting out of your comfort zone than by giving up staples in life. For me that would be coffee, alcohol, TV, snacking, sweets, internet, waking up in the morning to the news on my phone, and a few others. Sam and I have already talked about giving up eating out for the whole month of January. It will be an interesting experiment to try and hopefully will start a new habit of eating more healthy and save some money along the way. Thanks for this article. Keep them coming.
Will thanks for the comment, especially drawing attention to the Living Without article. I’m glad you and Sam have already decided to implement your own “living without” habit for January. You will have to post an update on here after you complete it and let everyone know how it goes. Happy New Year!
