This concept can relate to our lives in many ways, the fear of taking chances, the fear of doing something unfamiliar to us, and of course the fear of failure. It can be hard to come out of your comfort zone, a place where you feel grounded, feel as strong, feel safe. But then, when we exist in such a place how do we grow?
