PAGE 2 FRSA FLASH THOUGHTS TO CONSIDER !!!Being uncomfortable is the time that you grow the most! To be successful, you must getcomfortable with being uncomfortable. Being comfortable causes you to take fewer risks, ac-complish the ordinary and arrive at a mundane level in life.When comfort is your priority, you will become gripped with fear at each new encounter inlife. To be successful, a person must run into their fear and not run from the fear.The next time you feel uncomfortable, uncertain or fearful, press forward. Practice conquer-ing the fear in your mind. Learn to live with uncomfortable feelings. The feelings may nevergo away. In spite of these feelings, do something positive in the midst of your discomfort. Al-low your potential to grow while you are on this uncomfortable path!
