Putting yourself in difficult places is the only way that you will grow and expand your horizons.
Spending time in the areas that you are already comfortable has value, refining something that you’re already good at is great, never stop improving.
But if you never put yourself in new situations or areas that you’re not used to you will never grow outside of your small circle of comfort.
You cannot stay in the same lane and expect to see the whole town. You have to go to the places that you don’t know and navigate. If you stay in the same lane you’ll never get the full experience of the city.
Get out of your lane.
