Get Comfortable Being Uncomfortable

Get Comfortable Being Uncomfortable


A wise man once told me that in order to progress and succeed at anything you had to get real comfortable being uncomfortable.

I understood this to mean that staying in the same place, doing the same things and repeating learned patterns of thinking and behaviour will not change your future path one jot!

For me there are 4 key ways I embrace change and being “uncomfortable”:

1. Make sure you have a great coach and / or mentor in your corner, one you can trust to challenge your thinking, to provide honest unfiltered feedback and basically to tell it like it is.

2. Regularly carry out a process of self-reflection to identify the areas where you need to improve personally, professionally or both and do something about it. This is not about listening to your inner critic but rather considering what you could do to improve, develop your-self or challenge yourself and then acting on it.

3. Ask for feedback often – Reach out to your boss, colleagues, and people in your team who report in to you as well as family and friends and ask for feedback. People are generally kind though, so do give them permission to provide honest, unfiltered feedback.

4. Say “Yes” more often! Sometimes you just have to take risks in life – Saying “yes” can open doors to new relationships, opportunities, challenges and experiences that may well take you out of your comfort zone and open up a new world of possibilities.
