Tonight, I am incredibly grateful for the ability to take chances and try something new. The prospect of stepping out of our comfort zone can leave us feeling unsure, exposed, vulnerable, and nervous. Yet it is this threshold of discomfort that serves as the gateway to our next win, opportunity, and moment of success.
I do my best to ensure that I regularly position myself to do something I am unfamiliar with, because it’s the only real way to know where my learning opportunities await me. Being pushed beyond my present limits or abilities stretches me in ways that increase my capacity to influence and impact the world around me.
Today, I had the opportunity to encourage others to do the same – and for that, I am incredibly grateful!
