▶️ Humans have a need for both certainty and uncertainty / challenge (@tonyrobbins has a good video on this which you can search on YouTube to watch; he refers to the needs of certainty and uncertainty or variety, but I venture to say challenge is included in those ideas). ▶️ Comfort makes is feel stable and secure, but uncertainty / challenge makes us excited and engaged. ▶️ Pushing ourselves into the unknown and outside of our comfort zone allows us to grow and strengthen our resiliency. ▶️ If we choose to push past our present level in any area of life and force just a little bit of discomfort, it will be less taxing and stressful than it would have been when we are faced with it unexpectedly. ▶️ We will trust ourselves to handle it because we’ve demonstrated that we have done so in the past. We are less likely to back down or get overwhelmed. ▶️ If we let ourselves get too complacent in any area of self-improvement, then we are at risk of ending up like my mud race running shoes which only get used once a year—rigid and uncomfortable. They required breaking back in so that I wouldn’t get blisters. ▶️ If I had used them here and there instead of waiting until I had to use them, then they wouldn’t have been so hard for me to wear when it came time to pull them out. ▶️ What area do you need to challenge yourself in right now?
