2014 -- a year to stop living in fear and embrace it:

"Leaders push themselves to the edge, to the place where fear lives. By feeling it, by exposing themselves to the resistance, they become more alive and do work that they're most proud of. The fear doesn't care, either way. The choice is to spend our time avoiding that fear or embracing it." - Seth Godin

Good stuff.

This reminded me of something I heard Gary Halbert say. No matter how old we get, we never eliminate fear. Even elderly gentlemen get nervous when trying to spark up conversation with an attractive lady.

We're going to feel fear, period. But the difference between success and failure is movement. We can't let fear keep us from moving forward.

Thanks for sharing, Eric.
