The secret to changing your life

Dog comfortable in a chair

Do you want to change something in your life, in your work, in your relationships; your health, weight, happiness, job, confidence…?

Here’s the secret.

You can change your life only to the extent that you can tolerate a little discomfort.

That’s all. And it is that simple.

As soon as we start to try and change something, we feel uncomfortable because it is different.

How will you ever change if you can’t tolerate a little discomfort?

Your motivation to change needs to be sufficient to overcome your competing motivation to avoid discomfort.

Therefore, you can do two things:

1. Increase your motivation to change
2. Decrease the discomfort of change

Think of a change you want to make.

Each and every day, how are you going to approach that change differently now?

Here are some tips on how to deal with the discomfort of change.

My best wishes, Paul
