“Growth and comfort do not coexist.”
To have comfortable lives: that’s what many people aspire to achieve. They go through years of education and seek out jobs that would allow them a certain lifestyle, devoid of worries and concerns. At least this is what most people imagine when they strive for comfort. As relaxing as it sounds, comfort actually can be quite dangerous. In fact, succumbing to comfort often prevents one from taking risks, challenging oneself, and ultimately growing. People don’t change and improve by being comfortable; they become better and more polished by overcoming obstacles. Whether your top is 29,000 feet above sea level or in a boardroom, getting there takes a bit of courage and a lot of discomfort.
