get out of your comfort zone.

“Ten years from now there will be people who have achieved extraordinary success. While we don’t know who they will be, one thing is sure — they won’t be people who have stayed inside their comfort zone. Rather, they will be people who have continued to stretch themselves, even when things are going smoothly, and who have been willing to risk failure or looking foolish, knowing that the biggest risk they take is not taking any risks at all… In our ever more cautious and competitive world… being willing to give up the familiarity of the known and embrace the discomfort that comes from being outside your comfort zone is increasingly crucial to your success in work and life.” – Forbes
