Moving beyond my comfort zone is necessary for growth

Comfort and growth rarely go hand in hand. If I want to grow at the fastest rate, I must move beyond my comfort zone. I can enjoy discomfort when I know that I am ultimately benefiting from it.

I am drawn to growth.

While it feels good to be within my comfort zone, I am willing to be uncomfortable so I can evolve.

Most people opt for comfort instead of growth, but I am the exception. I crave personal growth. I want to investigate my limits. I want to grow into the most powerful version of myself.

I want to see what I am capable of becoming. My curiosity is more powerful than my need for comfort. Comfort is overrated in my mind.

I choose to make myself uncomfortable each day in order to reach my full potential.

However, I do allow myself to experience comfort each day, too. I am finding the perfect balance of comfort and stress in my life. I am able to continue to grow while enjoying my life.

Today, I renew my commitment to favor growth over comfort. I am committed to growing and evolving. I am willing to give up ease and comfort for a more compelling future.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. What am I allowing my need for comfort to cost me? What would happen if I were willing to be more uncomfortable each day?
  2. How much potential do I think I have? How far am I from reaching that potential? Why aren’t I closer?
  3. If I were willing to deal with more discomfort, what could I accomplish?
