Motivation: 18 in 18 – Uncomfortable

Do you remember the first time you had to give a public speech in front of your class?

You properly felt really uncomfortable, nervous, scared and properly quite unsure of yourself.

There is no denying that that’s how I would have felt.

These feelings are ok and totally normal.

Now think back to when you finished.  How did you feel?

Did you feel elated? Happy? Proud?

We all have a comfort zone.  A place where it’s all comfortable, cosy warm.  Comfort is a great zone, but you don’t grow in that zone.  The magic doesn’t happen in that zone.

If you want to grow as a person, change has to happen.

In order to grow, you need to get comfortable with being uncomfortable.

Getting out of your comfort zone is where the magic happens.

If you never get out of your bubble, you will never know what you are capable of.

Sure a fear of failure may stop us, but it’s the mistakes along the way that make us stronger.

So grow my little seedling, into the big strong tree I know you can be.
