I came across this David Goggins quote and I loved it! "I set my own standards. I started to reinvent the wheel for myself. I didn't follow the crowd. I did what I had to do to get where I had to go, and in doing that, that's where true growth is. It's okay not be exactly like everyone else. It's okay to NOT follow the crowd.

Is Fear Holding You Back?

Have you ever thought about what truly motivates you?        Recently, I was reading over my journal entries and found a recurring theme that scared me. It seemed like each day I would write down my goals, but week after week, month after month, I wouldn't get any closer to reaching any of those goals I had set.        As I kept on reading, I noticed this overall tone of fear was everywhere.
