Uncomfortable

Jamieson Cox
Class of 2014
Business Administration

If you're not uncomfortable, you're not growing. It's not about knowing the outcomes and heading to the light at the open door when in a dark room; but its taking the risk and feeling around for another door that may be closed but could lead to greater things. You don't build character by taking the safe, predictable route so don't settle for what's easy and known. Instead take huge chances, love the adventure, and go down a different path from the pack. You can't expect to push the limits of society by sitting comfortable because all change requires some state of discomfort. Get out of your comfort zone; life should be a slightly uncomfortable thrill.
