This is one of the most under appreciated notions. We become fearful of taking on new opportunities or doing something that takes us out of our comfort zone. However, every single time that we do, we learn something new that sets us up for some future role. I once was tossed into a retention manager job as a high schooler and hated it. But in this role, I learned some very valuable lessons that helped me all throughout my military career. Don’t be afraid of new challenges, they are the only way you will truly grow.
