Being uncomfortable provokes change
Ever thought of how being uncomfortable can be beneficial to your success?
After reading this post, you will understand the need to get uncomfortable with things below what’s obtainable in the world.
A young man grew up in a family were being average is normal.
He watched his parents manage everything all his childhood and to him these things are normal.
His vicinity had same set of people who are also managing. His friends were also same area.
Since they grew up in that area it was NORMAL so was pointless to even complain or get uncomfortable with what was readily available.
One day he went for a church conference in an entirely new environment and saw life from a different perspective.
When he returned to his place of abode, everything around him became uncomfortable.
Suddenly he wanted more out of life and would complain with the less he is getting.
He realized that he and people in his community were suffering and smiling and since they all grew into it, it seem normal but in reality they were simply comfortable with pain.
This conditioned comfort blurs their judgment and they fail to see what they deserve in life but only think of attaining the comfort they all ‘enjoy’.
Ever seen a person who grew up in a family where all that mattered was being alive and eating three square meals?
Most of them grew up with that as normal and once they get to that level, they feel they’ve gotten to the top of the ladder.
When your definition of success is met, aspirations would seize to exit.
The moment you get uncomfortable with the “Normal” around you, you begin to sort for ways to escape from that normality.
What I’m saying in effect is this, getting uncomfortable with the things below standard is a good thing.
Your being uncomfortable propels you to take action and that fuels your desire to achieve more feat.
Look beyond your current environment when you want to define success, that will enable you see things from another angle.
It’s OK to dream dreams even from the most lowliest of places. This births superstars and achievers who are celebrated worldwide.
In a nutshell to provoke change from current level of life, here are important tips to note.
1. See success from a different perspective; when asked to define a successful person, look beyond your environment and give your answer from what’s obtainable in the world.
2. Question the normal ;
‘My parents were subsistence farmers so it’s normal to toll that part’.
This thought pattern will see you don’t exceed the level of your parents.
When you question that normal you may discover commercial farming which is much more beneficial to you and the country at large.
3. Have a shift in mindset:
What you believe in has a long role to predicting what you become finally. “It’s first within, then without”.
If you do not believe it or visualize it, you can not become it.
Be on the look out for retarded believe system that bottles you from seeing what you can become.
Finally, always know that it’s absolutely OK to be uncomfortable with things that are below standard and obtainable in other part of your current vicinity.
