On our show today, I have invited my friend, Dr. Deb Gorton, to talk about getting comfortable with being uncomfortable.

What does that mean? Well you will have to tune in to find out!

But, if fear or discomfort have ever kept you from leaning in and playing full-out in life and relationships, you will want to listen in as we talk about how forgoing comfort is essential to growth and transformation.

We also talk about the cost we are paying to stay comfortable, how our most defining growth moments don't happen in the realm of comfortability and how radical acceptance is a key to moving out of unwanted circumstances. And, that failure is a part of learning and growth.
