Transformation comes because you want something better. And, transformation is NOT comfortable most of the time. That's ok.

Are you willing to do the work to break through the shell? That may be a great metaphor because getting out of that shell is only the first step. Then you need to rest (collect yourself and evaluate your next steps) and move forward. Taking that step to get past your comfort zone still leaves a lot of adventure ahead and if you're on track with a dream or project or business that enlivens you, you've got a lot to look forward to as you develop yourself.
What do you need to do right now that will move you forward one step?
Are you willing to look scrawny as you start? Are you willing to "fail forward" into success?
