Choosing Courage Over Comfort

There are times when we know what needs to be done and we just don’t do it. Not because we don’t want to but we are comfortable with where we are just now. We are used to the way things are. And we are just not motivated.

Besides, in a few weeks it’s the New Year. This is when you will get motivated and the new you will surface miraculously.

There is in fact nothing more normal than this feeling to be honest. We are humans. We are not machines.

So if this is how you feel just now don’t beat yourself up about it:

But think about this …

The 'new you' will only come about if you love the 'now you'. Is this even a proper word or saying I don’t know but who cares? You know exactly what I'm taking about: Accept yourself with all your challenges, all your imperfections. And if there are things you want to do differently, do them now. Even if it’s one thing you can do now. Do it.

Don’t wait for the new year.

You don’t need a new year to make the changes you want. All you need is for you to trust yourself and choose courage over comfort.

And once you see how courageous you are then that lost motivation will come back. Remember our motivation is always there within us. We just need to take action for it to come back. Not the other way around.

When you choose courage over comfort, you are choosing courage to show up when you don't know the outcome. You are choosing to be comfortable with the feeling of being uncomfortable … without a focus on winning or losing.

You've got this!
