But I think this procrastination; this lack of motivation; the excuses for why we can’t do the things we want are just lies we’re telling ourselves because we’re afraid. We’re afraid of our potential, afraid of not being successful, falling on our faces, looking stupid in front of other people.

Let me make one thing clear. I aint &*#@! And while that may sound self-deprecating, it kind of isn’t in this context. All I’m saying is that I’m still getting it together … and will always be … because there will always be room for improvement (I mean, that’s what this blog is all about). … Continue reading Getting My &*#@ Together Series: Sometimes You Just Shine Too Bright – Don’t Dim Your Light
