A Masterpiece Living Pearl for Never Acting Your Age
What scares you? What have you avoided most of your life but would secretly like to have? Once you admit to what this is, decide that you will take steps to decondition yourself. John Wayne said, “Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway.” Afraid of public speaking? Try saying a few words the next time you are at a gathering of friends. Afraid to fly? Commit to a short flight. Whatever it is that frightens and therefore limits your growth, you must identify it, realize that it presents an opportunity for substantial growth, and then begin taking baby steps to face your fear without having to fully face it until you are ready.
Live Long. Live Well!
