“… but that’s the way we’ve always done it.”
“I’m not as good as s/he is.”
“It’s too hard.”
“What if it doesn’t work?”
“I’m not sure I can do this…”
“You want ME to… ????”

Whether you’re in a meeting with others or all by your lonesome, you will hear that voice sooner or later. The voice that doubts you. That second-guesses a great idea. The voice that can kill dreams.
If you listen.


Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right.
Personal growth comes when you decide to get uncomfortable, to do something scary, to tap into the unknown. But when you do it–when you’re out of that comfort zone, you are not only free, you’re in a new zone, and you inspire others to take a leap of their own.

So get used to being uncomfortable. Be brave. Put yourself in uncomfortable positions that can grow you. Die empty.

What’s in your heart that you have been denying… that you’re dying to do?
