Getting comfortable with being uncomfortable - Esther Blum

Getting comfortable with being uncomfortable

When women come to my ‪#‎RadicallyGorgeous‬ live event, they don’t know exactly what’s going to go down or what their lives will look like on the other side.

And yet they show up, open-hearted and ready to do some serious self-development work in a space solely dedicated to their own unique journeys. 

What I love most about these weekend intensives is teaching women my greatest tool for success: Getting Comfortable With Being Uncomfortable.

We can’t prepare ourselves for every outcome or know what tools we use will be a success. And we don’t have to.

What we do need to know is that the process of changing our marital landscapes, building our own businesses, changing the way we parent, or taking ownership of our health and our bodies can be an uncomfortable journey. And that the discomfort is the exact sign we need to show us that we’re on the exact path we need to be on.

Most of us think that healing is a linear progression: 

If I eat healthy–> I will lose weight–> Then I’ll love my life.

If I have sex more–> My marriage will be healthy–> Then I’ll be happy.

If I lose 10 pounds–> I’ll feel better about myself–> All my body image problems will disappear and I’ll have an easy relationship with food.

For the lucky few, this is true, and the process is effortless. But for most of us, the root of the problem goes way deeper. If we can give ourselves space to figure out where we’re struggling, and stay present in the process, then we can bust through stubborn blocks and give ourselves permission to get the results we want. 

True healing has deep, rich layers that we must learn from. As we peel off each layer, there are specific lessons to learn and grow from. And in the process we have to come to terms with each lesson and take full responsibility for ourselves during the journey. 

No one can take this journey or do the work for you; the trip is yours and yours alone.

Clarity –> Alignment With Goals –> Growth –> Power –> Fulfillment of Your Desires
