One of the best reasons to step outside your comfort zone and try something new is that by doing so you might fail! Sound counter-intuitive? It’s not. Any great business mogul, spiritual leader, athlete, or social icon will tell you that they didn’t get to the top by trying once and succeeding-they had to face a lot of failure and rejection along the way and learn from it. What sets great people apart is that they do not fear failure, and instead accept it as a learning opportunity, a challenge to grow, an invitation to approach problems in new ways, and a strength-building exercise. We don’t discover anything new about ourselves by remaining exactly where we are and refusing to push ourselves.
J.K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter novels was waitressing and on public assistance when she was writing the first installment of what would become one of the bestselling series in history. The book was rejected by a dozen publishers. The only reason it got published at all was because the CEO’s eight year old daughter begged him to publish it.
“Failure meant a stripping away of the inessential.” – J.K. Rowling
