“You can only grow if you’re willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.” -Brian Tracy
We never have to push ourselves. We don’t have to try new things. We don’t have to get uncomfortable.
There is no law that says we need to change things up in order to be happy and fulfilled. But regardless of what we choose, life will change around us, and eventually make changes within us.
The real choice is whether we want to open up to new possibilities or wait for the world to tell us what those possibilities are.
Today if you decide to get outside your comfort zone–to stretch yourself, learn a new skill, or somehow be part of the world in a way that feels unnatural–know that discomfort isn’t permanent. Just like we fell when we first learned to walk, we will stumble when we’re in new territory.
Eventually, your comfort zone will widen, and that new action will feel as instinctive as taking one step after another.
