In this TedTalk, Luvvie Ajayi talks about getting comfortable with being uncomfortable.
Her talk is encouraging, challenges you and motivating. As I was listening to her talk, one thing I picked up was ‘doing things that are anti-you’. Doing what you would not usually do, things are don’t even consider and are quick to say no to. But what if you did them. What if you said yes to something you would normally say no to? What if you tried something you’re not used to trying or you would never consider.
This is powerful.
You create yourself by your decisions, thoughts and experiences. Stepping out of your comfort zone could take you to a place you’ve never been. Show you a world you’ve never seen. Challenge you to be better, think wider, experience more.
This week, do three things that are anti-you. Three things you would not usually consider. It could be wearing something you won’t usually wearing. Talking to someone you don’t give time. Starting that blog that been on your mind. Giving a talk publicly. Volunteering for something in class.
But don’t only leave it for this week, do it again, and again, and again.
Listen to Luvvie Ajayi’s talk to the end and be inspired. Get comfortable with being uncomfortable.
