Become Comfortable With Being Uncomfortable
Now, who likes to be uncomfortable?! I know I sure don’t! I get sick to my stomach thinking about change, or doing something that I really do not feel comfortable doing, but know I need to do. For example, when I was in grade school I use to LOVE to read out loud and never had a problem with presenting in front of my classmates.
Now, at 21 years old in my senior semester of college, I never raise my hand to read out loud and cringe at the thought of presenting! It’s so weird how overtime I all of a sudden got weirded out by public speaking. I am definitely much better than I was last year and even last semester at presenting so hey that’s progress. The last two times I had presentations I volunteered to go first so I could become more comfortable and confident in this skill that is so important.
Doing things that make us uncomfortable like talking in front of a crowd can help better us tremendously! The only way to get better at something is to keep on practicing and actually doing it. The same goes for accepting change. Change is something most people do not like. Getting out of your comfort zone is not always an easy thing to do, but in the end you are going to be glad you did. Go apply for that new job, go present that new idea you have to your boss, be confident and be the best version of yourself!
