As a coach, I often challenge people to step outside their comfort zones. Why do I do this? Because the rewards for the person who is willing to do it, are quite exciting, sometimes even wonderful or profound!
Rewards, yes, that’s what I said. Want to know what some of them are? Take a look at what can be yours if you’re willing to be a little uncomfortable:
- increased self-confidence – you gain a sense of accomplishment
- increased self-respect and pride – you know that what you did took some guts and because you didn’t let fear get the best of you, you are proud of yourself; you can now see yourself as someone to be respected
- increased tolerance for being uncomfortable again – you learn that being uncomfortable isn’t the worst thing in the world; you survived it once and therefore know that you can do it again
- personal growth – you experienced something new and perhaps you even liked it. Either way, you broadened your scope of understanding life.
Of course I practice what I teach – I am continually expanding what I know by opening up to new experiences. It’s not always easy, but it is so worth any temporary discomfort.
