If we’re growing, we’re always going to be out of our comfort zone. – John Maxwell

If we’re growing, we’re always going to be out of our comfort zone. – John Maxwell

For most of us, there is a sense of comfort in sameness and consistency. We are at ease when our lives are in order; there is serenity in knowing what’s ahead.

We must embrace productive discomfort if we are going to improve – if we are going to have a growth mindset. Living with a passion for growth requires us to seek new opportunities and to push outside of our comfort zone.

Often what’s most uncomfortable is what’s most important – we must evaluate what should change and what should remain the same. There are traditions, tried and true models, and highly functioning processes that should stay constant. Growth demands consistent focus and response to the events in our lives.
