Bill Eckstrom is an entrepreneur, author, speaker, with a passion in growth and development, shares life-altering, personal and professional development ideas through the introduction of the “Growth Rings” and why being comfortable will ruin your life.
The growth rings illustrate how dangerous it can be to remain in a state of comfort and how being in discomfort is the only way to sustain growth. You’ll be amazed at the world-changing outcomes discomfort can have on your life and the lives of others. It is a well known fact that remaining in your comfort zone harbours nothing extraordinary. Those that remain in their comfort are too afraid to step out of the norm, because they fear the unknown and as we all know there is no growth in staying by the side of the pool. This is why being comfortable will ruin your life.
Doing anything worthwhile is always going to involve a certain amount of discomfort, as you are taking yourself out of your comfort zone and putting yourself into a situation you have no experience or understanding of. The outcome is no longer predictable.
Embracing discomfort is the only way to bring about positive change and ongoing growth. You will find that when you put yourself in discomfort, eventually the more you did it, the more easier it becomes.
If you were to keep pushing yourself and placing yourself in discomfort, imagine how much growth you will see and experience in yourself, and how that could alter your very life and current existence.
It’s Not The Complexity Triggering Individuals Or Events You Should Fear The Most, But It’s Your Own Willingness To Accept Or Seek Discomfort That Will Dictate The Growth Of Not Just You, But Our Entire World.
