Embrace The Discomfort

He had been working as a Sales Manager in a leading firm for 5 years with 20 members working under him. He joined as Sales Executive and was talented to manage his show as an Executive. His salary was better than previous employment. He was very much satisfied with this job. At the time of joining this job, He was working very hard, and his work was praised by every one of the institutions. As a Sales executive, he brought many good things to the company but as a Sales Manager, he miserably failed. The management was extremely kind and did not impose any action against him. But how long? Since his performances were sharply getting declined, there were no other options to the management. Finally one day he was shown the door.

Let us see another incident. She does not want to visit any of her relatives or her husband’s relatives. Many of her relatives invited her to their house for lunch or any party or get together. But she refused to go there. If it is very important, she would go and come back within an hour or two. The primary reason behind this activity of her is without air-conditioning she does not want to stay or spend more time with them. She retained an extraordinary relationship with her relatives before purchasing air-condition. Her body completely accustomed to this device which spoils her natural behaviour. Right now it is evident that without this equipment she cannot sit or stand even for a minute.

These two aforesaid incidents clearly depict the people’s mentality and how this sophisticated life makes them behave. This is because once they entered into a world that gives facilities beyond basic amenities to their life. Before getting into this type of life, they would struggle a lot to get all these. In the first example, as a Sales Executive, he was good. The moment he was promoted as Sales Manager with a set of people as a team, He failed. Why? He thought he reached a comfortable position and forgot all of his responsibilities for the job.

In the second example, she is in the comfort zone and does not want to live in a discomfort zone in any situation. This forced her into a state that which is irreversible. She is solely responsible for this because she invited these difficulties.

Both incidents have revealed the picture of the comfort zone where people lived and not equipped to come back to the discomfort zone. A person struggled a lot to be at a comfortable level. This is fair. But this pleasant life makes them lazy. Spoil relationships. It will not allow them to put much effort to achieve. 

It will not allow them to attempt anything new. People who are accustomed to comfortable positions may have to suffer a lot in the future when they meet any unpleasant situation in their life. This is a self-satisfied level and not good too for them who want to pursue their career very effectively. Unless they set any target for the next stage and chase it, this comfort zone will definitely make them lazy physically and mentally as well.

In contrast, the discomfort will make them stronger and stronger and give an enormous energy to face any kind of challenges physically or mentally. Discomfort propels them to think innovatively and develop many paths to success. This will make them act focused and it is worthy to have the confidence to strive hard in a proper direction. Those who are in comfort zone try learning how to embrace discomfort to accomplish goals. Come out of the comfort zone and have sustainable growth
