I saw a meme on social media this week that said, “Be scared and do it anyway. Be under-qualified, and get in the room anyway. Be messy, imperfect, and unsure and show up anyway. Comfort is the enemy of growth. Get uncomfortable.”

I have always told my kids that life begins at the end of your comfort zone. Embrace the fear, remember you don’t have all the answers, but start.

How many times do we keep searching for more information rather than diving in and learning as we go?

The only thing we can count on is that life is finite. Dreams will be left unrealized unless we decide to take a chance, do the work, and believe that anything is possible.

So as author Jen Sincero said, “Try new things, step out of your comfort zone, take risks, do things in ways you’ve never done them before, ask for help, surround yourself with self-actualized people, become obsessed with the fact that you have one go-round on this planet as the you that is you, and realize how precious and important it is not to squander that.”
