In the majority of cases, whenever you do something in life that makes you uncomfortable you need to adapt.

By doing something new or recycling your capacity revisiting skills that were a little rusty, you are growing and becoming better.

  • People who hate their job, but have a good financial situation, their salary it's enough to buy and pay things they need do live. They are comfortable with it, that comfort is stopping them from quitting that job and finding a new one that they would love, and would get them to be fulfilled. 
  • People who love eating and have fitness goals. They love eating the same caloric foods all the the time, they love it so much that the countless hours they spend on the gym have zero results. In fact, they are getting heavier, comfort is their handicap in the path to reach their fitness goals. They need to get uncomfortable by eating healthy food.
