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.

To be honest, I started to understand that fear wasn't only effecting my goals, but...

Can't Hurt Me - David Goggins

I've always had a desire to start a business. It started when I was young. I knew that one day, when I had the "right idea" I would finally start my business. The funny thing is, that day never came. Each chapter of my life, whether it was getting married or having kids, changing jobs or just regular stresses of life. I always saw those things as signs that now wasn't the right time to make a change and finally start the my business. Not to mention I didn't even have an idea that I liked. After years of this, nothing ever changed. I recently read Can't Hurt Me by David Goggins. If you know David's story, you know how...
