“Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.”
~ Brian Tracy

What this quote means to entrepreneurs:
How can you own your awesome if you don’t fully know what it is? And if you don’t push beyond the confines of your current perspective, you may never know what your awesome could have been.

Excelling in life and business means continuously moving out of your comfort zone. It means expanding what is comfortable for you. It means stretching beyond where you thought you could stretch.

What would life be like now if Columbus hadn’t stretched beyond the comfortable notion of the shipping lanes of his time? Would we still have Teflon pans if President Kennedy hadn’t pushed us beyond our comfort zone and onto the moon?

Worst case scenario: What if you had never allowed yourself to feel awkward learning to walk? Would you still be crawling … today … even as an adult?

Growth always comes with some discomfort. And that’s OK. Get comfortable with discomfort, for it will lead you to places you hadn’t thought you could be.
