The moment you quit feeling as though you are the only one who has ever wanted to give up and accept that it’s normal, something starts to change.
Your mind finds it easier to keep going when it is shown factual evidence that supports this reality. That is why I watch videos and read books of people from all walks of life who have wanted to give up.
Consistently doing this has trained my brain to understand that wanting to give up is normal, and not giving in is where the growth, accolades and success lies.
It is difficult to be a human being because when you’re born, you sign an unofficial, invisible agreement with life that guarantees you will experience struggle. It’s what you signed up for and it’s important.
Embrace pain. Shun comfort.
Comfort numbs pain — discomfort allows you to grow beyond pain. Whether it’s food, retail therapy, a cigarette, a glass of wine or drugs — these experiences that make you comfortable help to numb the pain of your everyday life.
It’s okay to experience comfort at some level as long as you remember that only seeking comfort and avoiding discomfort is guarding you against unlocking your potential.
Uncomfortable situations force you to grow and that is how you grow beyond your current level of pain, and in doing so, create wealth and achieve success.
