DigitalOyster's curator insight, August 4, 2015 11:57 AM

Leadership begins at the end of your comfort zone. Leadership starts in the learning zone. History has shown that life rewards the risk-takers, such as Thomas Edison, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Nelson Mandela, Henry Ford, Elon Musk, and many, many more. These are leaders who have dared to step out their comfort zone.

 

Leaders who dared to change things.Leaders who dared to make a difference.Leaders who dared to make an impact on the world.

 

Where do you find the line is for your. Is it easier to stay in the comfort zone? Do you try to step out into doing things different but then jump back into comfort? Are you someone who pushes the comfort and see how far you can go?

 

My advice is just try, see if you can get out of your comfort. All I ask is take one more moment and stay with that stretching and growing opportunity and just take 1 more breath. 1 breath, if you an make it through 1 breath then you have gone farther than what you would have without it.

 

Here's to you and your business's brilliance (and one more breath!),
