I always did something I was a little not ready to do

I think that's how you grow. When there's that moment of 'Wow, I'm not really sure I can do this,' and you push through those moments, that's when you have a breakthrough.

Author:  Marissa Mayer

Marissa is the CEO of Yahoo! and by all accounts a pretty amazing woman. She's also the mother of twin girls. Something we have in common (well, not the girls part, but the twins).

Why I like it:

Because pushing outside your comfort zone is the only way to grow and change. It's something I've always done and have sometimes felt so uncomfortable my skin would crawl, and at other times revelled in the exhilaration of the new and exciting.
