“A person’s success in life can usually be measured by the number of uncomfortable conversations he or she is willing to have.” - Tim Ferriss
Being who you've always been, doing what you're comfortable doing, brings nothing different than what you have right now.This is an indisputable truth.
Comfort rarely brings abundance.
Wishing and wanting are good places to start, but nothing ever changes until you have the courage to show up differently.
How uncomfortable are you willing to be in order to get what you really want? This seems like a valuable question to start asking.
The moments in my life where I've been the most scared and uncomfortable: walking away from a stable job to start my own business, riding an elephant in the jungle in Thailand, traveling to Africa on my first volunteer vacation, have ended up being the most memorable and meaningful moments of my life.
You don't always have to do big things in order to create meaningful change. It's the small ways in which we challenge ourselves to be different on a regular basis that allow for a new, more powerful light to make it's way in.
Through our weekly work together one of my clients has made a whole slew of small changes that at first felt mighty uncomfortable.
He closed his office and began working from home, he began wearing the clothes that made him feel more like him (rather than thinking he had to dress up all the time in order to appear successful). He spends a lot more quality time with his kids challenging himself to see that he's a much more capable father than he's used to let himself believe. He approaches his work and his professional relationships on terms that are now his own.
These are just a few of the many changes he's made. He will be the first to tell you that the quality of his entire life is now better than its ever been.
Maybe every little moment of temporary discomfort is here to save us permanently?
How uncomfortable are you willing to be?
Be careful of how safe you've been keeping yourself, I don't want you to miss out on who you came here to be.
love and light, xx Lori
Please remember, we ask these questions, we challenge ourselves, never from a place of shame or being mean; always from a place of deep self-love and worthiness.
This may seem like an insignificant element, but the way in which you talk to and treat yourself will determine whether or not you succeed.
Being hard on yourself never works. Love is infinitely more powerful than hate.
