One true fact about change

Let me start off by saying I hate change. But you know what? No one likes change! No one likes to be uncomfortable!

We're creatures of habit.

Now, let me ask you a question: how many times have you felt uncomfortable so far this week?

We do what we do because we're familiar with it and therefore comfortable doing it - even if we know the outcome will be bad.

That means if we're used to acting, eating and exercising a certain way and it's not producing the results we want ---> we must change.

If we want to grow and evolve, we must do things differently, no matter what facet of life we're talking about here.

That means automatic discomfort will ensue.

Being ready for it helps tremendously.

So, let's get to the root of it. What is keeping us from changing?

Let's ask ourselves two questions:

1. What is the worst that can happen?

2. What is the best that can happen?

#2 is almost always greater than 1. The pain, discomfort, tension, resistance (whatever you want to call it) is temporary.

Here's where it gets interesting though: The benefits of 2 are forever.

What doesn't kill us only makes us stronger. (I know. I know. But it's the truth.) The more we push change on ourselves, the more tolerance we'll have for it.

So what can we change?

Here are some ideas:

Your attitude. Your outlook. How quickly you eat. What you eat. How much you eat. How long you exercise for. How intense you exercise. How many times a week you exercise. If you exercise. Your beliefs (this is hard!).

Every single one of these requires change and experiencing some sort of discomfort.

Try pushing yourself out of your comfort zone today and for the rest of the week. Whatever feels most uncomfortable - do that.

For example, you walk into the kitchen at work and there are cookies everywhere. The most uncomfortable thing to do in this moment would be to pick up the plate of cookies and throw them on the wall and scream as loud as you can, "Damn! This isn't a part of my plan! What's the matter with you people?" Do that! (Or just walk away. To each his own.)

Try it. You'll be surprised at how empowering it feels to choose the most uncomfortable option.
