It’s said that mankind’s oldest and strongest emotion is fear.
Because to live fully — to risk boldly and embrace new challenges — requires that we learn to face fear and be free of it.
Fear of failure, fear of the unknown, fear of ourselves or the opinions of others — what might we accomplish if focused on what motivates us into action, not what prevents us?
Reach beyond your bubble. Be audacious. Fail forward. Let urgency conquer apprehension.
This year, reject fearful and become fearless.
