Grow, learn, and find true fulfillment by embracing challenge and adversity
Do you sometimes resist doing things you know would be good for you?
Have you worked yourself into an insulated bubble of comfort, ease… and boredom?
It’s only natural to seek out comfort. Comfort can be a truly wonderful experience, and indeed some level of comfort is essential to a life well lived. But when we prioritize comfort at all costs, to the point that we are no longer open to challenge and change, we deny ourselves some of life’s richest experiences. We start to feel lethargic and unfulfilled. And that’s to say nothing of the impacts of inactivity on our physical health.
So many problems come down to a fear of, or at least resistance to, discomfort. You want to lose weight, but it’s not worth having to diet and exercise more. It would be great to get that promotion, but you can’t be bothered going through the selection process. You’ve thought about catching up with that old friend, but the thought of actually making contact fills you with anxiety.
How many shining opportunities have you talked yourself out of simply because you aren’t willing to push through the discomfort of getting there? It is only through challenge and change that we learn, develop, and grow. If you never step out of your comfort zone, you’ll be stuck in that same zone for the rest of your life, never even getting a glimpse of all those unrealized possibilities.
We need challenge to feel fulfilled
The need for challenge is recognized as one of the primal human needs. We all need to stretch ourselves to feel that we have a purpose to work towards and that we are making meaningful progress in life. Without accomplishment there can be no true satisfaction.
Challenge means different things for different people. So ask yourself: What kinds of challenges would give you the most satisfaction? Could you push yourself to go out and meet new people? Perhaps it’s time to enrol in that course that you never quite found the motivation to start. Or maybe you really need to get into a proper exercise routine.
Once you start embracing challenge and pushing the bounds of your comfort zone, you’ll see for yourself just how rewarding it can be. Feelings of satisfaction and accomplishment are addictive! Not only that, but comfort itself is infinitely more enjoyable when there is discomfort to contrast it against. Just think how much better it feels to flop onto the couch with a cup of tea and a blanket after a long, brisk hike than after yet another day of air-conditioned comfort.
Comfort is a nourishing, essential ingredient to a well-lived life. But so is discomfort.
