Progress is made in uncomfortable places.

A wise man said that, or something similar, this weekend and it got me thinking. It was about CrossFit but it applies to every aspect of life.

If you want change in your life, whether it’s physically, spiritually, mentally, financially, you have to be willing to get uncomfortable. Because your comfort zone, where you’ve been staying, what you’ve been doing, hasn’t been working. 

You can’t change without change. And that most often requires a little discomfort. 

Think about it in a workout, whether it’s CrossFit or otherwise. If you come in and move but you aren’t pushing your comfort level, aka, the intensity, a little bit, you won’t see much progress. 

But if you come in, you push the intensity, you go outside of your comfort level, you’ll start seeing progress. 

Someone recently told me I was looking leaner and I asked Nick if he thought I had changed anything. I mean, I was still eating the same so I was a little confused. But then it dawned on me. I have been pushing my intensity a little more in my workouts lately. I’ve been feeling more myself and have felt comfortable getting outside of my normal comfort level – the I’m pregnant and don’t want to miscarry level that I’ve been operating on over the last several months. 

Y’all, it makes a difference. The uncomfortable places. The intensity. That’s where change happens. Or, if you want to be cheesy, that’s where the magic happens.

You have to be willing to get uncomfortable. You have to be intentional about being uncomfortable. Because your comfort zone is where dreams die. 

I know that in every aspect of my life when there has been change, it has been super uncomfortable. But I also know it’s when I’ve grown the most. When I’ve learned the most. And honestly, when I felt the most uncomfortable is when I knew I NEEDED to make changes. 

I urge you to think about where you are right now. Are you parked comfortably in your comfort zone? Are you just going through the motions of daily life? 

If so, think about where you want to be. Is it some place different than where you are now? What steps would you need to take to get to that place? 

Get outside your comfort zone. Go into those uncomfortable places. Push your intensity. Grow. Make progress. See the changes. 

If you need help getting outside those comfort zones, let us know. We are here to help. Progress grows there. I promise. 

Have a beautiful week!
