Show Notes

Staying in your comfort zone often gives us a sense of control and stability.

But when it comes to growth, staying in one spot for a long time doesn’t lead to growth.

So how can you comfortably leave your comfort zone and unlock your hidden potential?

Today, Jay sits down with organizational psychologist Adam Grant. Adam is a leading expert on how we can find motivation and meaning, rethink assumptions, and live more generous and creative lives. Adam hosts the TED podcasts Re:Thinking and WorkLife, which have been downloaded over 65 million times. Adam’s latest book, Hidden Potential offers a new framework for raising aspirations and exceeding expectations.

Adam and I explore why growth is so important in our lives as we dive into the tools to use in order to grow through discomfort. We look deep into facing discomfort, finding your authentic voice, and the true essence of learning.

Now, let's talk about something that can sometimes weigh us down – envy. We'll learn how we can turn envy into inspiration, using our role models as a stepping stone to success.

In this interview, you'll learn:

  • Why personal growth matters
  • How to deal with discomfort
  • How a life coach can help you
  • How to find your authentic voice
  • How to get out of your comfort zone

Truly, this is a journey of self-improvement, self-discovery, and embracing personal growth.

With Love and Gratitude,

Jay Shetty
