1079. Risk One Step Out of Your Comfort Zone - Encore
“Many people are afraid to try something outside of their comfort zone. I truly believe most people—after the age of 18 or maybe 22—get sucked into the status quo. Then they’re very afraid to try anything new. I found that if I could get one foot out of that comfort zone and leave the other foot in, the comfort zone got bigger. The more risk I took and started heading toward my talent area, the more fun life became, and the more joy I got in my life by doing that. But, it took a lot of courage to break out.”
