The human experience requires you to feel uncomfortable
Personal growth, change, and expansion all begin with the internal. However, when you change your behavior (the external), you begin to change the internal. And that’s why so many men feel stuck in this cycle of safety. So push yourself to change, as the human experience requires it.
We’re programmed to seek comfort because that’s how we survive, reproduce, and evolve. That’s the very reason for dissatisfaction. On paper, we might have a roof over our heads and food on the table; that safety makes us question these feelings of struggle, dissatisfaction, and numbness. Are you feeling satisfied or just accepting what’s “good enough?”
In this episode of the Becoming Kings Podcast, I sit down with Mike Campbell to discuss the identity crisis of modern men. Mike shares an insightful idea – we create safety and comfort in the external world in order to make up for our insecurities. We discuss the steps you need to take to begin making progress, why you don’t need to be perfect yet strive for discomfort, and Mike details a perceptive analogy on how to behave as a man.
