It has been said, to the point of cliche (and now a pop song): “What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger.”
We all have our fears and demons… the daily challenges we face. To overcome them, sometimes we must venture from the shore of our well-established comfort zone… our internal island where everything is familiar and nothing scary happens.
For young professionals starting their career, the world outside their comfort zone can be huge, and scary. Are they making the right choices? Should they stay with the safe job they have, or quit to pursue their passion? Are they living their dream, or the dreams of someone else?
Time to leave the comfort zone behind. Time to get stronger. Time to get ahead.
In this week’s #InternPro Chat, we and our special guest hosts from @MyRisingTide discussed this important issue with “Exit the Comfort Zone: Taking Risks, Getting Ahead“. There’s a lot of great advice for young professionals, and indeed for all of us, in this week’s summary, below.
Join us for our another episode of #InternPro Chat on Monday, March 25th at 9pm ET!
We continue to work with Storify on presenting the summary within our posts. In the meantime, enjoy the summary here!
