3 Tips for getting a Return on your Visibility Investment
The Power of Discomfort
What makes you feel good? Some would say a sense of comfort makes them feel good. Others would argue that they’ve learned to feel empowerment in moving through discomfort. D0 you know you can have BOTH?! You can! There is a paradox of the human spirit. We are meant to continually GROW!! When you become comfortable, your spirit says “Hey! Let’s go! There’s MORE! When your conditioned self hears your spirit say that, it responds with something like “Woa! Hold on! MORE means work. Work means INVESTMENT. What if I don’t get a RETURN on my visibility investment? That makes me UNCOMFORTABLE!”
Long Term Comfort
The truth is that when we don’t invest, we are UNCOMFORTABLE IN THE LONG RUN. We may trick ourselves into feeling comfortable for the moment or short-term; however, our spirits will not let us down! They will push us into discomfort eventually. Our spirits push us into discomfort when we are not aligned with our potential. We will feel uncomfortable until we step into our potential! We’ll begin to move through the fears and unknowns; ironically, we’ll get a sense of comfort. The comfort comes because we are listening to our authentic inner voices. When you reach your goals, again, you may feel uncomfortable until you take the next step toward the new potential you’ve created for yourself!
