How uncomfortable are you willing to get? by Mary Schiller | Jan 22, 2018 | Success in life, The Three Principles, Video | 6 comments Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window) Related 6 Comments Arda on January 23, 2018 at 4:30 pm Hi Mary, I love what you are doing. I was introduced to the three principles in September 2017 and I can’t stop reading about it. I also read your book “The Joy Formula”. It al makes perfect sense to me, except my life isn’t really changing. I have a very good life though, the only thing that is missing is pure joy. Reply Mary Schiller on January 23, 2018 at 5:02 pm Hi Arda: Thank you very much, and I appreciate your comment. You are made of pure joy, so it can’t be “missing.” Sometimes we’re listening to thoughts in our heads, but we couldn’t escape joy and all those wonderful things if we tried. They are what we’re made of. Reply Jo on January 23, 2018 at 7:09 pm What if your uncomfortable feelings are more physical? I might faint, I might freeze during telling a story, I’m feeling light headed etc. Can you talk about these sort of uncomfortable feelings Mary? It seems hard to allow them through fear of what might happen . Thanks Reply Mary Schiller on January 23, 2018 at 8:10 pm Hi Jo: Thanks for this question. We can listen to “what if” thinking all day long, but it won’t make it true. Thoughts/feelings are quite poor at telling the future. Fearful thinking is us painting a “what if” kind of monster and then being afraid of it; it’s not real. So go do the thing you want to do. It’s not about us; it’s about what we can bring to other people in this world. If we falter in that process, so what? Reply Nicky on January 25, 2018 at 2:55 pm Hi Mary, thanks for addressing this, it really resonates for me. I’ve got a fair grounding in the 3 Ps and would love to share it beyond one to ones but I guess I’m letting the discomfort of the thought of being visible act as a barrier. I love the idea of getting comfortable with being uncomfortable. I can’t wait to see what more you have to say about this. Thanks x Reply Mary Schiller on January 26, 2018 at 4:09 pm Hi Nicky: It’s so nice to hear from you. Once we realize that it’s not so much about getting visible and simply helping another person, those “barriers” show themselves for what they are: not there in the first place. 🙂 Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
