“The magic only happens outside your comfort zone.”
I’ve had some experiences recently that reminded me of the words another very successful entrepreneur told me. He said, “never take a job that doesn’t make you nervous to accept. If it doesn’t make you nervous, it’s not challenging you enough and not worth your time.” I’m reminded of those words whenever I’m looking at another opportunity to take.
If you’re about to take on a new endeavor, it’s a great way to quickly check if you’re staying in your comfort zone or if you’re taking on a challenge that is truly worth your time.
“Why not go out on a limb? That’s where the fruit is.” – Mark Twain
As we’re growing up, we’re constantly forced to learn new things. We’re given challenges by our teachers that we have no other choice but to complete. But in adulthood, we have to create learning opportunities and challenges for ourselves if we wish to grow and be successful.
Did the last job you took make you nervous?
