There are two kinds of people: those who naturally gravitate towards doing uncomfortable things and those who naturally shy away from them.
In business and in life, the biggest rewards are often on the other side of discomfort.
If you’re someone who tries to avoid the discomfort, you will naturally miss out on those rewards. Unless you learn how to embrace the uncomfortable activities.
Mike Williams talks about how to do this, in this video, filmed at the Titanium Mastermind in Jamaica.
RUN TOWARDS THE DISCOMFORT
It’s human nature to avoid conflict and confrontation of any kind. Some people naturally gravitate towards it, but the rest of us try to avoid it.
Sometimes, it’s worth taking a leaf out of the other book and to run towards discomfort and embrace the struggle. This requires some self-discipline.
Mike Williams started exploring the concept of self-discipline after listening to an audiobook about it.
Some of the suggested exercises from the audiobook were to take a cold shower, and to strike up random conversations with strangers, just to prove you can.
Your subconscious mind naturally has control over your actions, and it will help you to avoid the uncomfortable activities that will move your business forward. You don’t want your subconscious mind in control. Exercises like the above will help your conscious mind regain control over your subconscious mind.
DO YOU REALLY NEED TO BE SCARED?
Anyone who has done uncomfortable things will tell you that the most fear is felt in the lead-up to that activity, not during the activity.
Think of skydiving, for example. You drunkenly agree to do it the night before, and later on that night, you feel terrified and wishing you hadn’t.
You worry about what will happen if the chute doesn’t open. Then, when you’re up in the air, you realize you’ve never been in an airplane with the door open. It gets scarier and scarier.
Once they push you out, your fear suddenly disappears. You realize that the point of maximum danger is the point of minimum fear, and you wonder why you needed to be so scared the night before.
Often, you’ll find that the uncomfortable things are not that uncomfortable after all.
