Joel Osteen asserted very powerfully that “ I want to challenge you today to get out of your comfort zone. You have so much incredible potential on the inside. God has put gifts and talents in you that you probably don’t know anything about.”
Discomfort is essential to personal progress, growth, and development.
You must know people who are under uncomfortable zone and growing. They are the true inspiration. You are also aware of potentiality and development. You are in comfort zone means your comfort zone have more control on you rather. You need to taste your level of potentiality and touch that level with huge commitment.
So important is discomfort to personal development, that there’s even an educational term for that uncomfortable place where learning happens: the zone of proximal development. You can lead in such situations with help and without help.
You could fall apart but could not be at the way you fear prior beginning. Most important lesson i had learnt in life is do not create fear of failure before executing your dreams.

In her new book, The Discomfort Zone, Marcia Reynolds masterfully coaches the reader about how to have conversations that disrupt people’s thinking so they can embrace discomfort and think in more imaginative ways.
She writes, “For true shifts in thinking and behaviour to occur, you must be willing to challenge a person’s beliefs, interrupt his patterns, and short-circuit the conviction to his logic even when it feels uncomfortable. This is a Discomfort Zone conversation.”
But the temporary pain gives way to new clarity, insight, and growth. You need to understand first, what is the duration of this pain. Why you need this pain ? What did you get out of pain ?
Virginia “Ginni” Rometty, the CEO of IBM, captured the importance of embracing discomfort when she said, “Growth and comfort do not coexist.” If you want to grow, progress, and evolve, you’ve got to be willing to embrace discomfort.
