When's the last time you surprised yourself?
A moment, a decision, a feeling... Something you did or experienced that goes completely against everything you stand for, everything that makes you who you are.
Or at least, who you thought you were.
Being pushed out of our "comfort zone" can often do that. We discover we are capable of things we never imagined. Constraints lead to creativity and action.
And it's a great feeling, isn't it?
Surround yourself with people who challenge you. People who encourage you to step outside of your bubble of safeness, or even gently shove you out of it.
Because if you don't, you'll never learn.
