Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal.

Discomfort

Discomfort is by definition not pleasant. It is, however, powerful.

A person who never experiences discomfort will not know the full extent of life’s richness. That’s not an arbitrary judgment, but a fact proven over thousands of years.

Discomfort teaches what nothing else can. Discomfort pushes you to grow in a way that cannot be replicated.

Comfort is enjoyable and makes you soft, weak, puts you out of touch. Discomfort hardens, energizes, fills you with determination.

Muscles that have never experienced discomfort are feeble. Going through discomfort creates resilience, robustness, firmness, strength.

Go ahead, take on a challenge that makes you uncomfortable. You’ll get through it, and it will make you a whole lot better.

— Ralph Marston
