Being Uncomfortable Doesn’t Mean You’re Wrong.

Just because you’re uncomfortable doesn’t mean that you’re doing the wrong thing. Just because there are obstacles in your way doesn’t mean you’re executing the wrong strategy.

One of the biggest mistakes you can make about success is believing that if you had the perfect plan you wouldn’t have any of the problems associated with making progress.

That’s a lie.

It’s easy to fall into the trap of believing that you can avoid the frustration of failure by reading enough books or following enough expert advice.

Information isn’t the same as transformation. Knowledge isn’t the same as hustle.

It doesn’t matter how smart you are or how amazing the book you’re reading might seem, you were going to have to try and fail and find a way to try again.

That’s uncomfortable.

But that doesn’t make it the wrong move.

That uncomfortableness doesn’t mean that you’re wasting your time and effort. It means that you’re going through the normal process of attempting break through.

You’re not broken. You’re evolving. You’re growing.

You’re growing.

You’re right where you need to be right now.

Don’t give it all up because you think the uncomfortableness you feel means you’re doing something wrong.
