Why do you get stuck in old, unproductive patterns?
Usually it is because they are familiar and therefore comfortable to you. In other words, you many have gotten comfortable with the discomfort.
When you feel like you are in a rut, it is not just time for a change, it is time for you to create that change.
You need to look at the behaviors that got you where you are and are holding you back from going where you would like to go.
You need to be honest with yourselves; are you comfortable with your discomfort? Are you afraid of the risks that always accompany change?
You need to clearly envision the life you would like to create for yourselves, and you need to believe that you can have and are entitled to that life.
The dream, the plan, the love that heals, the new body you want, the new home, the new career. All that you want. Depends on you making a change. Get out of the rut of comfortable discomfort and take a risk, unless you do, it’s not going to change.

Most people are not comfortable with change. But you are right, we must get off of our comfort zones and embrace change. Otherwise we will not grow. 🙂

There is a natural resistance to change in all of us. We feel more secure in what we are in now, although sometimes we are uncomfortable with it. We seem to adapt to the present discomfort because of the discomfort of changing. It’s ironic.
If we want to progress, we have to take courage and venture into change. All progress is a result of change
