Every day you must choose between fear or growth.

Every day you must choose between fear or growth.⁣
Whether you consciously experience fear or not, it defines you in many ways.

It determines who you are and what you can do in life.

We tend to orient our lives in ways that avoid our fears, and in doing so, quash our natural growth.

In fact, it’s such an automatic process, we often don’t even know what our fears are.

Fear happens at the edge between who you are now and who your process is trying to get you to be.

Fear is your calling. It’s saying, “Yo! This is where the gold is!”

Ask yourself what personal growth changes scare you.

Then, instead of avoiding, rationalizing, or running away from your fear, turn into it.

Study it.

Amplify it.

Hunt it and confront it.

Process it!
