  1. Hey Fay,

    Good post. I agree… negative thoughs can effect your life on the mental and physical level. A positive mindset is crucial for living a more satisfying life.

    I liked what you said about doing something anyway even if it makes you uncomfortable. You have to get comfortable with feeling uncomfortable. πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Cory,

      Thanks very much for sharing your thoughts.

      It certainly pays to put up with some discomfort. It is temporary and an essential part of growing yourself. The benefits are worth it. Your comfort zone will grow and you’ll become comfortable with things you once found uncomfortable.
