“Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” – A.A. Milne

At some point in our lives we do everything for the first time, and accepting there are going to be challenges, and at times failure, all comes with stepping out of our comfort zone. We all have a comfort zone; that space within which we feel safe and in control and where things come easy for us. Life seems good in the comfort zone because there is little to be afraid of or worried about, and there is a low risk of failure or rejection or any other unpleasant experiences. However, the problem with living life in our comfort zone is that there

is little if any room for growth and learning. Growth and learning come only from venturing beyond the comfort zone.

Having a growth mindset is not the full story; a growth mindset must be

translated into action. A growth mindset in action means that we allow ourselves to fail,

to make mistakes, and persist in those areas that we have not yet mastered, despite our

fears and discomfort. The growth that is experienced by people with a growth mindset

does not happen within the comfort zone; the space in which we explore only the things

we know; the things that we feel we know and can control. In order to learn and grow

from a situation, one must venture beyond the comfort zone into what can be called the

fear zone.
