Opportunities for growth

Growth only occurs in a state of discomfort. I had never thought of it so simply. I had come to the same conclusion, but in the opposite way. That the more discomfort, the greater the growth.

These life events that cause great discomfort, these events are free chances for growth.

Really that’s the only way you should think about it. Of course they will get you down, if they don’t, then you have a real problem. Let them get you down, but remember that they will lead to your growth, no matter how tough they are or how long the discomfort will last.

Some people even go out of their way to create discomfort, I do by doing Yamabushi training and following the Wim Hof method, but life also gives you free chances.

When things happen to you, they have already happened, so you don’t need the anxiety in waiting for them to happen to you. You already have them as opportunities for growth.
