Examples of unfamiliar in a Sentence

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    We gain amazing confidence and courage on every occasion when we work outside our comfort zone. When we are outside our element, we have no choice but to challenge ourselves to win against all odds, in the face of fear and uncertainty. In my view, we offer our best performance when we have to operate outside our comfort zone, just like a meteor entering Earth's gravitational field and shining brilliantly with the brightest light that illuminates the sky. Hence we mustn't fear leaving our comfort zone or being outside our element at any time. Instead, we should challenge the status quo to offer the best performance in an unfamiliar territory. This is how we reinvent ourselves, and become the better versions of ourselves than ever before. Life often begins outside the comfort zone.
