Yoga Practice

If everything is too good, you’re probably stuck not being awesome.

Don’t join “easy street" - You won’t grow.

Many people are so comfortable they’re miserable.

Comfort can lead to self-absorption, boredom, and discontent.

Breaking a habit, trying something new, taking a risk, making new connections, or putting yourself in a totally new situation won’t be easy, but it’s worth it. It’s exhausting but rewarding.



Be comfortable and stagnate or stretch and enlightened yourself  —  become uncomfortable  —  and grow.


ADVICE: Choose the latter!!!

Go where the demands are high. Go where the pressure is to perform.

Psychologist says people who regularly seek out fresh experiences tend to be more creative and emotionally resilient than those who remain stuck in routine.

Here at PAUSE we believe that if you break your own mold, it can only make you stronger and more confident to reach higher levels in your professional and personal life.


To grow, you have to embrace the discomfort.

The transition will be uncomfortable and scary, but that’s the nature of the beast.

Stretch yourself. You might just like what’s possible.

Your Comfort Zones are most often expanded through discomfort.

Discomfort is a catalyst for growth.

It makes you yearn for something more. It forces you to change, stretch, and adapt.


The secret to success lies in the very thing you’re avoiding.

Those things that seem to break you down and humble your spirit.

Seek out discomfort.

Be deliberate about doing things that push your limits magnificently.

Difficulty helps you to grow.

If you want long-term success, stop avoiding what’s hard.

If you’re truly pushing yourself to improve  —  in any capacity whatsoever  —  you are uncomfortable.

When you are challenged, you are asked to become more than you were.

That means creating new perspectives, acquiring new skills and pushing boundaries.

In other words you have to expand your understanding

in order to be able to overcome the obstacles facing you.

Learning to be comfortable with discomfort is one of the most important skills

you can ever have to live a truly fulfilling life.

If you learn this skill, you can master pretty much anything.

Getting out of your comfort zone from time to time challenges your mental skills.

Mentally active people are constantly building dense networks of connections between their brain cells.

Scientists call that “Cognitive Reserve.”

Continuing to learn new things builds and maintains these connections.

Mentally challenging tasks have the biggest impact on the health of your brain.

Be open to new experiences that cause you to see the world and do things differently.

If you master discomfort, you can master just about anything!

Discomfort can be the joyful key that opens up everything for you.

You can beat procrastination, start a new habit, learn a new language,

make it through challenges and physically gruelling events,

explore new things, speak on a stage, and even embrace the minimalist lifestyle.
