Episode #146 – Encore Episode: Get comfortable being uncomfortable
With back-to-school in sight, we have so many unknowns to face. This will be unlike any other school year we’ve experienced before. And while we didn’t choose any of the circumstances we are about to face, challenges provide the opportunity to grow.
And the way we grow is by leaning into the discomfort.
In this encore episode, I discuss why avoiding discomfort causes failure, the subtle way comparison drags you down, and three crucial strategies to reframe and conquer your discomfort in order to grow.
