As a mentor I really enjoy the opportunities to watch the students step out of their comfort zone and do things they’ve never done before.
I have countless opportunities to give advice and feedback to the students in many areas such as social ballroom dance, dating, talking about their feelings, being an advocate for themselves, etc.
The one thing I always tell the students is, “If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.” and many of the students have told me how true this statement is.
As they look back on things that challenged them the most, they seem to always end up being the most rewarding and that’s what life is all about.
Being slightly uncomfortable, whether or not by choice, can push us to achieve goals we never thought we could.
