    THINK OF
    DISCOMFORT AS
    CURRENCY–
    IT’S THE PRICE YOU
    PAY TO LEARN...


    Everything you want is just outside your comfort zone.” To be honest, I don’t know who said it, so let’s just pretend I am that smart person.

    Being uncomfortable is usually considered a bad thing. When you think of the word “discomfort,” you might think of, say, a crowded elevator full of sweaty people, or you might picture a creepy guy who keeps smirking at you from across the room. Or maybe you’re watching TV with your parents and Nicki Minaj’s music video for “Anaconda” starts playing. Uncomfortable!Totally uncomfortable *drinks water*.

    However, you have to seek out situations that make you uncomfortable,throw yourself into them and come out like wolves leading the pack.It is crucial to nurture,develop new skills and gain valuable experiences in life.After all Life is what you make it.We all have to go through this awkward process of figuring out what works and what doesn’t.After finishing this process later when we we look back we ll be grateful for the growth phase or long ladder of promising accolades that it has brought in our personal and professional life.

    We all know Drake the rapper chic who told us that he went from “0 to 100 real quick,” but I promise you he went from 0 to 1 to 2 to 2.2 to 3. It was only after he put himself in a lot of tough hot spots he finally hit a cool 100 in his career.. In fact, early in his career, Drake got booed off the stage in his hometown.*wipes a tear*.

    To succeed at something, you have to step out of your comfort zone, inch by inch. Think of discomfort as currency—it’s the price you pay to learn some pretty crucial things.

    Besides, the goal isn’t always the trophy. The goal can also be the stepping-stones—the bronze and silver medals that bring you closer to the gold.

    Remember, on the path to success, fear and discomfort are only speed bumps. Don’t make them dead ends.
