“Thinking will not overcome fear but action will.” – W. Clement Stone

Learn how to tame your fear by challenging yourself with short-term goals. Get use to the presence of fear as you take on new challenges. The more you face your fears the less you resist fear when it arises because you know how to deal with it. When you have collected enough experiences in which you’ve overcome, you become powerful. For most of us our first reaction to fear is to resist and to seek out our comfort zone but for some people our comfort zones are so far from our reach that we don’t have any other choice but to pave a new path.


“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.” – Helen Keller

Challenges build muscle and make the next trail easier to face. The more you train the more you strengthen your muscle, so throw bold and intentional punches into life. You will soon feel more confident and comfortable when you face challenges.
