I was always in awe with Kpop Queen Nayeon as she was the first to become a member of TWICE, the first from the group to go solo, and was the first K-pop soloist to enter the Billboard Top 10. 

And now, Nayeon has released her second solo album, NA, that talks about getting the confidence and believing in yourself to step out of your comfort zone.

Embracing the new

Going outside of your comfort zone can be uncomfortable, difficult, and troublesome. I mean, why shake things up when you are comfortable where you are?

But research has shown that trying new things and going outside your comfort zone is important for many reasons like personal growth, expanding connections, developing creativity, and discovering new interests. Nayeon shared with NME the same sentiment.

“I know it’s not a must to try new things and challenge myself. But I think it’s more interesting to show different sides of me”. 

Something to help navigate the fear of new beginnings is to research where you are going and acknowledge some of your comforts will be disrupted to make room for these opportunities.

Allowing yourself to be a beginner

When trying new things, we may place some expectations or goals onto ourselves and do anything we can to reach them.

However, Nayeon shared that we also need to make room to enjoy the process.

“I had to learn a new [style] of choreography, so that was something I struggled with. But I put enough space to find joy and fun in my profession”.

“A-B-C-D, over and over again”

Perhaps the reason why I admired Nayeon was because she believed in herself and gave herself the room to explore, experience, grow, and learn!
