What is your dream?
Often, the thing that stops one from being successful is not the lack of talent or affluence, but the fear of failure.
Being afraid to go for your dreams – or worse, being afraid to even dream, for fear of failure is the number one thing that will stop your dreams from coming true.
Because if you don’t try, how do you have any chance to succeed?
Know that, no matter what your goals are, the universe is on your side.
You’ve got all the tools in your belt that you will ever need to make your dream come true.
Squelch the fear in you like a big ugly bug under your shoes and go for your dream like your life depends on it.
Because it does.
