We all have fears — fears that keep us from embracing the lives we want. Indeed, it is that which stands between success and true failure.
Defeating our fears is not an easy feat. Because it is often a battle against one’s own mind. Unfortunately, this treacherous adversary cannot be “reasoned with” and fighting is the only way; the only way to get to the other side.
