It’s tough to walk into your boss’ office and demand a raise or go up to that hot girl in the party and introduce yourself. It’s frightening. You don’t know what will happen, and there’s a reasonable chance that you may not get the desired outcome. However, it is only through reaching outside of our comfort zone that we can begin to expand what is possible in our life. It’s the things we have to work for and take a risk to get that we treasure the most in life. Yes, you might experience the sting of rejection, but the courage needed for taking a chance will start to build, like any muscle that is exercised, and you’ll begin to become more bold and courageous in other things in life too.
