If you ask me, I find that there are a lot of ways to find massive expansion in your career and uplevel your life. You can soak in new ideas by reading insightful articles, books, and go full research mode. You can listen to podcasts, attend live events, and invest in learning new skills. But you know what is often left out of the equation?
Just how much we can learn from uncomfortable situations!
Now, I’m not gonna lie, I do have my fair share of moments where things just didn’t feel right. Like I wasn’t meant to be there. Like I wasn’t qualified to be there.
Did I want to leave? YES. Did I want to melt into a puddle of goo and just slip out the door? Definitely! But what ultimately stopped me from quitting was the realization that, oftentimes, these moments of discomfort are exactly what we need to break the mold. It made me realize that beyond this discomfort, these sick-to-your-stomach feelings, is where I’ll find something extraordinary.
And so, let me put my storyteller hat on today, because I don’t think we talk enough about how important it is that we embrace this phase in our journey.
If you’ve been itching for a massive expansion in your career, but end up with a crazy amount of ‘fight or flight’ moments instead, then I urge you to tune in. This episode might just give you the mindset shift you need to push through despite the odds!
“I had a choice, I could have decided that this is not for me, but I didn’t. I’ve decided to push myself through that sick to my stomach feeling. I tried again, learned more, and come back to the table and do it again.” – Stephanie Skryzowski
