I’ll give you no fluffy words and no long paragraphs containing filler. Let’s just get right to it. You have to put yourself in an position of discomfort to get the things you want. You just gotta. Here are some real life examples of how you’ll need to push:
It’s pushing until it hurts…and maybe even until you’re crying.
It’s choosing to miss out on certain moments of relaxation and personal enjoyment. Because you’re hard at work.
It’s being told “Thanks, but no thanks”, yet still trailblazing your path.
It’s many conversations with yourself: to talk you out of quitting and to remind yourself of what you deserve.
It’s knowing you’re awesome even when no one else seems to think so.
It’s denying yourself superficial wants to achieve the wants that really matter.
It means getting back up when you’ve suffered a potentially devastating blow that pushes you backwards.
It’s overcoming the criticism and judgement from others that tell you your goals are quite ridiculous and most likely unattainable.
It’s overcoming criticism and judgement of yourself.
It’s believing that you deserve what you are striving for.
It’s developing the discipline to move towards your goals everyday.
It’s understanding that patience is required. No patience = no reward.
It’s knowing your worth and not being moved by the negativity that might surround you.
It’s doing. NOT trying. It’s actually making moves and getting stuff done.
It’s removing the lazy bone tendencies that creep up in exchange for disciplined, consistent actions.
It’s realizing you still have more work to do when you feel like you’ve already worked hard enough and deserve it right now.
It’s refusing to deny yourself the accomplishment even when you’d rather give in and quit.
It’s ending the self-sabotage that keeps you stagnant and unfulfilled.
These points on discomfort will not instantly show up in your life. They must be developed. But there is no development and no resulting reward unless you go against the grain of what’s comfortable and start working hard. Today. In a very uncomfortable way.
