Attitude > the mother of all actions. 2nd place, is the looser #1. GOOD is the best enemy of GREAT.
Why? COURAGE = decision that something
else is more important than FEAR. Faith and determination defeat fear! Human problems are on the root. That
is, on the brain; Mental control eliminates problems..

Feel The Fear and Do It Anyway
(Book by: Susan Jeffers)
No one is fearless, Hold to your fears and live the life the
way you want to live it. Move from a place of pain, paralysis and
depression; to one of power, energy, and enthusiasm.

There is Plenty of Time
Impatience” is the biggest pitfalls of our life! Being impatient is a way of punishing ourselves! When ready to move forward – we will. Until then, keep learning and progressing. Life is an ongoing process of learning;
do not punish yourself for not having done it (yet). Commit yourself to pushing through the fear Become more than you are at the present Commit to learning how to bring energy to your
Higher Self. Whatever it takes to get you there, Feel the Fear
and Do It Anyway.
