8 Ways To Get Comfortable Doing Uncomfortable Things And Growing Through Them

Often, it is easy to seek those things that bring us to comfort instead of doing something we haven’t done before. It’s easier to be that encouraging voice on the side telling them to break free from their comfort zone. But it is much harder when you are the one who is being forced to get comfortable doing uncomfortable things and growing through them.

Today’s topic is all about how to get comfortable being uncomfortable. But throughout our lives, we have been conditioned to do just the opposite. We want to postpone or avoid the uncomfortable. We create lives where we go about our daily routines, or rituals, or habits, avoiding the very things that benefit us when we do those uncomfortable things. And truly focus on our own self-narrative. When we sit with the challenges, the pain, suffering, tolerance, whatever it may be.

In this episode of the Passion Struck podcast, John R. Miles talks about how doing small uncomfortable things can gradually lead to a self-examination of our lives. The inspiration for this episode came from a series of recent interviews he did with Navy SEALs.
