My palms were not the only thing sweating as I came in for only my third landing as a student pilot. It was after this moment that I acknowledged how much out of my comfort zone I was by taking on the challenge of learning to pilot a Cessna Skyhawk. “Why am I doing this,” I had to ask myself? Because many of the great things in my life have come as a result of pushing myself out of my comfort zone.
As an executive, leader, salesperson, or staff member, you have the opportunity to choose the status quo or push yourself into growth situations. Killing my own comfort zone has enabled me to fly in more ways than one. I invite you to join me by taking on something you’ve been avoiding or by attempting what may even look impossible.
