    Look, let's speak plainly: pushing yourself isn't just something you need to be doing on the mat, or in the gym. It applies to all aspects of your life.

    And if you're not routinely apprehensive about something you're about to do, that's a symptom that you're insulating yourself from challenges or hardships that are actually opportunities for personal growth.

    Whether it's as simple as meeting new people, learning a new skill, or putting yourself into a situation where you haven't fully grasped all the particulars; if you don't pressure test your very existence, you'll never know what your limitations are. This is a fundamental concept here at Bullshido, that we've been espousing for over 10 years now: you learn best when there's a significant risk of failure.

    And the "Comfort Zone" can also be taken literally? In many places at this time of year (at least in the northern hemisphere), it's hotter than a gang of monkeys fucking in a burlap sack. Are you avoiding going for a run outside? Do you park closer to the building so you don't have to walk as far in the heat?

    Thing is, if you're comfortable, you're not getting better. If you're avoiding adversity, you won't be prepared for it when it kicks down your door; because it will -- that's how Life works.

    I would agree. But best yet isn't saying much.

    I would say it is the only one that wasn't totally fucking gay.
