fostering a community of people interested in exploring strengths
"You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face."
On this anniversary of D-Day, it seems appropriate to quote the First Lady of the man who led the U.S. through World War II. FDR famously said that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself, but apparently Eleanor would simply have looked her fear of fear in the face and gained strength from it. Jokes aside, there's wisdom here: what we fear is often based more on the unknown factor than on the true scope of the problem. Look your fears in the face, see them for what they are, and learn to get past them.
This week's challenge: what are you currently fearing? How small can you make that issue by seeing what you fear for its true, manageable scope?
