E33: Sebastian Cuervo on limiting yourself by staying in your comfort zone

"You aren't doing yourself any favors."
3

Moving to a new country can be a nerve-wracking experience.

But that doesn’t mean you should allow the anxiety to hold you back. As Sebastian Cuervo puts it, you don’t do yourself any favors by staying put in your comfort zone while settling down.

For example, deciding to rent a home where most of your neighbors are predominantly from your home country.

Sebastian moved to Canada from Colombia due to what I call the noise - that steady, almost invisible hum in your head that keeps you on your toes, worrying about what could go wrong and what went wrong.

And I totally relate…cos that’s one of the reasons we left Naija.

He joined me on The Newcomers Podcast to chat about:

  • Misconceptions we often have about immigration

  • Tradeoffs we have to make when we move to a new country

  • His cultural heritage and what he hopes to pass on to his offspring

  • The Colombian Sebastian vs. Canadian Sebastian

Enjoy! And remember…

…Don’t limit yourself.
