Everyone Should Live By The 'Yes Theory' And Seek Discomfort

Ammar, Thomas, Matt, and Derin, you are brilliant!

Everyone Should Live By The 'Yes Theory' And Seek Discomfort

I recently stumbled upon a YouTube Channel called "Yes Theory" during one of my late night binges. I usually attract to make-up/fashion videos, vloggers and the occasional comedian, but this channel was nothing like I had ever seen before.

A group of four guys from four different parts of the world decided to make a channel in 2015. Their motto for their channel and for life is "We believe that life can be as authentic & fulfilling as you wish if you Seek Discomfort. We make videos about it." I believe everyone should check out their channel or at least live by their motto.

Have you ever tried to "Seek Discomfort?"

Have you ever gone outside of your comfort zone and done something exhilarating? Ammar, Thomas, Matt, and Derin have shown time and time again that seeking discomfort and doing scary and exciting new things can make you feel on top of the world and unstoppable.

As humans, we hate being uncomfortable, therefore we never push ourselves to look for discomfort and tackle it. Try it sometime, it's definitely a whole new lifestyle.

They're extremely contagious.

They even say so in their videos. Watching them jump out of a plane or meet Will Smith makes you want to go do exactly that. They make it look like facing your fears isn't as scary as we make it out to be. Watching the high they get after conquering their fears gives you a giddy feeling while laying in your bed on the other side of the continent.

Imagine living with no hesitations.

I have recently been living my life with a "no hesitation" rule and after stumbling upon "Yes Theory," it has empowered that even more. Imagine not just seeking discomfort, but going head-on with your everyday fears with no hesitations. Imagine overcoming your everyday stressors and anxiety because you aren't afraid to face them. It sounds so simple.

The "Yes Theory" has given me a new way to look at life and I didn't have to jump out of a plane to do that. If they can conquer their fears head on and put it on YouTube for millions to see, I think I can conquer mine as well. If you want your life to be as fulfilling as you want it to be, you have to seek discomfort and that's exactly what they challenge you to do.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
