Positively Uncomfortable Day 17: Why Facts

Find Your Why!

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

Motivation is one of the biggest keys to eternal fulfillment and freedom and no matter how much money or job title you have, it is all irrelevant if you don’t have a why. Your why doesn’t exactly need to correlate with your job, but you need to have a reason to do what you are doing every day!

Education is what gives me purpose and drive to wake up every morning. Education represents hope for tomorrow. Education has allowed me to create my own happiness, challenge myself beyond limits, and inspire others to live every day with appreciation, joy, and purpose. When I realized this was my passion after traveling the world this past summer, there was no turning back besides waking up every day being mentally and physically healthy, improving and growing, gaining further clarity on my why, and positively impacting as many people as I possibly could each day through educating and inspiring others to be themselves.

How Can You Get Uncomfortable Today? Try Something Different!

The reason why some people never find their why is because they never get out of their comfort zone. Comfort is toxic if you are trying to achieve long-term happiness and success to reach your full potential. Getting uncomfortable through unique activities with people you have never met before such as salsa, ballet, jiujitsu, public speaking, or photography are one of the thousand of options where you can meet other amazing people, learn how to ask questions, and get a temporary feeling of being alone and lost. Going against the grain in this safe environment will open up your curiosity and help you get closer to your true self while making you curious and motivated.

The Correlation Between Getting Uncomfortable and Luck

We have all had our fair share of good and bad luck, we all have uncontrollable events that will get in the way of moving forward, but the reality is that you are the own author of your luck. The more times you put skin in the game, invest in yourself, and get out of your comfort zone, the more likely you will find your way, the more likely luck will go your way, and the more likely you will wake up every day free and fulfilled. This is because the more uncomfortable you get and the more time you spend with yourself, the better chances you will find activities/people that are aligned with your vision and the more opportunities that will arise each day to discover your passion.

In the Uncomfortable Tipping Point Diagram, I depict the messy process of finding your why. Because we are so caged to instant gratification and short-term pleasure, we are really good at drifting away from our why. However, as we start to move up and challenge ourselves to get uncomfortable on the left hand side, we sacrifice short-term discomfort and struggle for the opportunity to get closer to our why. Once you have a renewed vision for your future by getting to the motivation tipping point, the sky is truly the limit for whatever path you decide to embark forward on your journey.
