It’s rare that real growth takes place without some level of discomfort.

So why do we try to avoid it so much?

So often we look back at challenging times and say ‘wow, that wasn’t easy, but I really learned a lot’ or ‘it was the best thing that could have happened, it made me so much stronger’. If we consciously acknowledged that the discomfort we were feeling was a key ingredient to positive growth, would we be so quick to avoid it?

Transformational leadership is all about identifying and implementing necessary changes with vision, purpose, motivation and accountability.

Change is good, but it is often accompanied by discomfort. We resist change because we don’t like that, we want to remain safely within our comfort zone.

Whether you are leading a team or you’re a solo operator, getting out of your comfort zone is necessary for you to grow your business and your leadership skills. It is also within the discomfort zone where you may well find answers that contribute to the survival of your business.

The discomfort zone holds lots of opportunities and at times it holds lots of answers. Many people stay firmly in their comfort zone because they don’t want to face the TRUTH.
