You know the value of pain and struggle, but sometimes, you understand that these are temporal things, as happiness and success are temporary. However, sometimes, you catch yourself in a pattern of failing, succeeding, failing, trying and again, succeeding, that you find life a bit stagnant. This feeling comes from comfort; the comfort in the instruments you use to succeed and make struggles easier. These instruments are inevitably developed as you try to minimize the problems in your struggle, but they make you comfortable
When one is comfortable, one doesn’t find the challenge to be contributing to the development of their person. People who are comfortable usually have so many complaints; they complain about the smallest things. If you know that you could be comfortable in a discomforting environment, then you’ve confronted the biggest enemy of all.
The one thing that the bible actually got right was that being a sloth is a sin. Idleness could be the workplace of the devil. Although, it would be fine to relax and take a break from time to time, being productive and achieving something is the programming installed in most humans. People feel more alive when they achieve something; most are afraid when they face certain problems.
When you learn to confront comfort, you learn more about yourself, your skills and your capabilities. It is important that you understand the truth behind the phrase “no pain, no gain”.
