Everything we want is on the other side of fear. Too often, fear hampers us from engaging in the personal development and decision making that will move us to the next level. This episode encourages us to move forward ‘through’ the fear. What do we fear? We fear ridicule. We fear failure. We fear the absence of quick success. We fear loneliness.

(Ep 30) Emotions: Good Servants But Poor Masters

6/21/2018

Emotions make for good servants but poor masters. This is a truism of which we should stay mindful. Because while feelings go away, actions fueled by feelings can have permanent consequences and detrimental ramifications on decisions and relationships. Too many of our men and women (young and old) are experiencing this first hand from their jail cells. Lives have been lost, families destroyed and potential has been squandered from hasty decisions not lead by logic and reason. We have to...
