We gain amazing confidence and courage on every occasion, invariably, when we work outside our comfort zone. When we are outside our element, we have no choice but to challenge ourselves in order to win against all odds, and in the face of fear and uncertainty. In my view, we offer our best performance when we have to operate outside our comfort zone, just like a meteor enters Earth's gravitational field and shines with the brightest light that illuminates the sky.

This is how we reinvent ourselves, and become the better versions of ourselves than ever before.
