Discipline: Feeling Discomfort

Discipline: Feeling discomfort.

Hello, My Friends

Everything you want is on the other side of discomfort.
If it wasn’t uncomfortable or unfamiliar, you’d have it already.

What is so bad about feeling uncomfortable emotionally, that we run for miles from it, we procrastinate, we feign illness, we stay in our little circles?
The feeling of discomfort and the feeling of the unfamiliar, are to our brain dangerous, even when we are in no mortal danger.
To our brain, different is deadly. It’s trying to keep us safe, and small and confined is safe. Not moving into the unknown is safe.

When the pain of staying where you are is more than the pain of moving, you move.

In other words when what you want to do makes more sense than what you are doing, you pluck up your courage and begin to do what you want to do.

Discipline is about making that transition quicker and easier.
The way we view discomfort either works for us or against us.
Walking into the unfamiliar for the first can feel, all sorts of uncomfortable, overwhelming, out of your depth, nerve wracking.
But like anything you now do with regularity, you had to do it a first time.
What is the difference between now and then? Practice and experience.
The more you do something the more familiar it becomes.
You get to know what to expect, you begin to relax into it.
This is how discipline works, and before you know it, you are being a part of the thing that frightened you, easily and effortlessly, you almost can’t remember not doing it.

The secret is to know that vibrations running rampant in our body’s cannot hurt us.
They are feedback, listen to what they are telling you, and proceed to do the action that will lead you to your ideal life.
Soothe yourself with kind words, tell yourself you can do anything you set your mind to when you’ve studied and practiced it long enough.
Your emotional vibrations are letting you know you are in a new and foreign environment, calm and soothe them, and proceed anyway if it is physically safe to do so.

Reframe the way you see discipline, the way you view uncomfortable things, the way that unfamiliar situations can work for your good.

Today’s challenge is to do a task that you want to do, but have been putting off because it feels uncomfortable.

Until tomorrow, notice when you feel emotionally uncomfortable, work out how you can make that feel more comfortable.
