Being Uncomfortable Strikes Gold

The more uncomfortable you are in business the closer you are to striking gold.

Lately I have been extremely uncomfortable working on updating copy, creating new packages, upleveling systems, working on a second book, etc. So uncomfortable that there are times I want to shutdown and run away and go to the movies or the beach.

As I am working through the process I have been checking in with my body and this is what I have learned:

The closer I get to really honing in on clearly describing what I am delivering and moving forward on completing a project, the more uncomfortable I get. So uncomfortable that it is overwhelming. The longer I sit in the uncomfortable feelings, lean in, and don’t allow myself to get distracted or give-up, the closer I get to striking gold. I have been pleasantly surprised at how many nuggets of gold I have unearthed over the last couple of weeks. I have made it a habit to have a talk with myself daily and gently remind myself that today and everyday will be uncomfortable. I remind myself not to be afraid of the feelings–it is just part of the journey.

Do you ever feel uncomfortable as you get closer to striking gold? How do you handle the uncomfortable feelings?
