Mastering the Universe

Do you want to change something in your life, in your work, in your relationships; your health, weight, happiness, job, confidence…?
Here’s the secret.
You can change your life only to the extent that you can tolerate a little discomfort.
That’s all. And it is that simple.

As soon as we start to try and change something, we feel uncomfortable because it is different. Because it is food we are not used to, because it is exercise we haven’t done before, because [ ........ ]. You fill in the blank.

How will you ever change if you can’t tolerate a little discomfort? I am not talking excruciating self-torture, just the taste of a food you don’t like, or a few sore muscles from exercise you are not used to, or taking the time to really listen to a boring colleague.

Think about how you avoid discomfort, and in doing so sabotage any attempts you make to change.

How bad does it have to get before you start to tolerate some discomfort and start to change?

Here is an unusual link. I usually link to a topic in Alchemy. Not this time.
