Why discomfort is good for you

The seasons and the weather will never adjust to you. Therefore, if you want to succeed you must know the seasons and adjust accordingly. Change is extremely uncomfortable because we default to pleasure. Here is a warning about what allowing pleasure alone to lead us can do to us.

Whoever loves pleasure will become poor; whoever loves wine and olive oil will never be rich. Proverbs 21:17

It is winter out here and today morning was freezing cold! I was out this morning a little over 6:30 am running. Did my usual 5.5 miles and came home to a hot/cold shower.

This morning, I had this dialogue with myself, when the thought of switching the water from hot to cold entered my mind.

My mind “Dude, you are not going to do this to me are you?”
I responded, “I am going to do just that.”

Then I switched the water to cold. Hahahaha! The world did not come to an end as my mind made me think. It is a mental toughness thing that I do.

Thanks for reading. This is the IEM APPROACH
