cu nesci arrinesci

I'm looking to understand the meaning of this Sicilian phrase a bit more. From what I've gathered it means something along the lines of "Those that leave their comfort zone succeed." Could anyone provide me with more explanation/context? I'd like to know how common it is in Sicilian society, and if it's meant lighthearted or more ambitious and serious tone.

Thanks!
