The only way growth is possible is when you can leave your comfort zone, step out into something new and scary ... then give it your all. Even if you don't achieve what you thought you would, you still tried, you took a chance, and you did more than you ever could have by staying in your protected bubble. The more you take a chance, leaving your comfort zone behind, the more growth you'll experience. In this way, you'll find that your comfort zone grows as you do and you will be more confident, stronger, and not as afraid to take those chances! Keep it up!
