DECLARATION 21 (part 2):  "I act in spite of fear. I act in spite of doubt. I act in spite of worry. I act in spite of inconvenience. I act in spite of discomfort. I act when I'm not in the mood."

According to Harv:

How do you respond when something makes you uncomfortable? You can only grow when you are outside of your comfort zone. T. Harv Eker teaches us to act despite discomfort. Any time you are doing something and feel uncomfortable, pat yourself on the back and say, "I must be growing." Comfort zone = wealth zone (cz = wz). Expanding your comfort zone means expanding your wealth zone. Harv reminds us that when there is a large container of something, say a liquid, for example, more liquid will rush to fill any space. The minute you get comfortable, you have stopped growing. Practice acting despite fear, inconvenience, and discomfort. Act despite everything that gets in your way. You are not your mind. You are much bigger and greater than your mind alone. You need to control, manage, and train it to work for you. That's the most important skill you could ever own regarding happiness and success. Train your mind! Start with observation. Consciously replace the non-empowering thoughts with empowering ones. Consider all of the declarations we discussed. Make a decision that your thoughts do not run you.  You run your thoughts. Stay focused on directing your thoughts. You direct your mind. Harv references author Robert G. Allen, who discusses, "No thought lives in your head rent-free." You will pay for negative thoughts. Therefore, only entertain empowering thoughts. Exercise POWER THINKING! Everything is neutral. "Nothing has meaning except the power we give it," says Harv.


A Book in Time's Commentary:


Professionally:  Often, we get caught up in the comfort of our safe environment. This is secure, predictable, and.... mediocre. There is nothing wrong with this. But if we ever want to excel, move forward, grow, or advance, we need to allow ourselves to feel some discomfort. Let this be a guide to make some adjustments and try something new. Take another step in your business or career, or ask for something challenging. Make additional calls. Try something you may have been afraid to try before. Expand your mind, expand your thoughts, strengthen your feelings, then take some action! Ask yourself, what's the worst that can happen? "Shoot for the moon; even if you miss, you'll land among the stars,"  Les Brown.


Personally:  This applies to all aspects of our lives. Not only in business but also in our personal lives, it is easy to become complacent. We must continually advance in faith, learning, relationships, and growing. Never stop learning. Push past the fear or discomfort and focus on growth. Continued learning leads to increased job satisfaction, improved self-esteem, an expanded network of friends and acquaintances, building character, a more colorful life, and increased earning and opportunity potential. We should strive to learn something new each and every day.


Spiritually:  It is during the times of our trials and challenges that we grow the most. We don't just go through trials; we GROW through trials. Trials are inevitable. We should work to cultivate a positive attitude towards affliction. "Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials" James 1:2. In other words, our outlook determines our outcome. How we perceive trials will inevitably influence how they impact us. Program your mind so when, not if, trials arrive, your thoughts are already programmed to productively and appropriately work through the situation with endurance, "Knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance" James 1:2. These challenges are all opportunities for spiritual growth.
