And ambitious people tend to be action-oriented.
Which is great. Most of the time.
But where I get in trouble is when I’m in a hurry to achieve a goal.
Here’s where the issue lies.
If I’m in a hurry, I know I’m trying to move past discomfort without experiencing it. It’s quite human – after all, our brains want to protect us from discomfort.
But discomfort is where the real growth occurs. When I experience discomfort, I’m opening myself up to the full human experience. I’m willing to experience all the feelings to get to my goal.
When I practice allowing discomfort, I realize it doesn’t kill me. And I’m not afraid to feel more of it.
And when I’m not afraid to feel discomfort, I say yes.
Yes to impossible goals.
Yes to new challenges.
Yes. To all of it.
