In a world of convenience, instant gratification and ease, getting uncomfortable seems like the last thing we’d want to do. But in order to grow, we MUST get uncomfortable. To be successful, we must be willing to get comfortable being uncomfortable.
I use my personal development as my source of inspiration for content creation. P.D is something that I do on a daily basis as a non-negotiable.
I can always tell if I’ve missed a day or two of personal development because it gets incredibly difficult to connect with source energy during meditation.
Gosh, sometimes I cannot believe that this is me now.. I used to thing that source energy, meditation and visualization were all fluffy phooey nonsense that people referred to as a way to make us feel inferior and sell us shit.
So much has changed about the way I think and the way I respond to my environment. Now I am able to connect with source energy in a way that brings peace into my life.
Raising our vibrations isn’t a switch that you throw after one day of building a network of wires.
It’s a practice.. a track we run on, an affirmation we repeat out loud in the mirror everyday.
It’s getting better and better everyday!
Mental Discipline is about controlling our focus, controlling our energy. Staying the course despite distractions.
This morning on the live stream after the wake up call. Brian went deep.. He said
Click the quote to check out his video.
The person I am is defined not by my physical body, but by something else.
Something bigger and deeper
We spend our minutes as we spent our minutes the day before..If we do not break free of the cycle we are born into, we are destined to live the lives someone else designed for us. Connecting with source energy helps us break free of the limiting beliefs that were ingrained into us from our infancy.
If not the physical actions.. the beliefs.
The beliefs change slowly over time with practice.
I believe the world is the way it is not because of science and facts. But because of the influence of my environment controlled by my parents. It is my belief that must change.. not the world.. it is I.. that must grow.
My understanding, my perspective, MY VIBRATIONS!
When you control your environment, you can push yourself.. physically
Like the Navy Seals.. Todd’s example from this morning’s wake up call really put “getting comfortable with uncomfortable” into perspective for me.
You see at first I was like.. That’s a dumb statement.. because once you are comfortable being uncomfortable .. you’re no longer uncomfortable…. Right?
As Todd described how this practice helps them retain their focus despite any physical distraction.. I realized that the moment you are comfortable again… is the moment you immediately push yourself to a new.. HIGHER level of uncomfortable.
Now mind you, internet marketing is nothing like hypothermia, rolling around in sand, and being basically physically tortured…NO.
It’s learning new software or starting conversations that are hard.
It’s uncomfortable like THAT!
Here’s another example… might seem crazy..
My daughter took a tumble off the couch in February.
What I thought would be a bump and a bruise was a laceration that required 11 stitches.
Thankfully, my instincts kicked in, and I acted quickly. I literally held her gaping forehead closed while applying pressure with my shirt… Both my 12 year old son and 6 year old were home sick that day. My older son helped dial Adam who happened to be working in the shop at that moment. He was home and we were at the hospital in under 10 minutes.
Riding in the car in the back seat with my baby in my lap… letting her nurse for comfort while holding her head together is absolutely the MOST uncomfortable I have ever been..
After that day, I took all sorts of leaps in my business.. by the end of that week, I’d made $500 and gained 2 new clients…
You see.. prospecting, promoting my own stuff… was no longer scary or uncomfortable feeling compared to going through that with my daughter…
So while it may seem crazy to compare stitches to marketing.. That’s how my brain works.
