"If you're going to be courageous, an example for all those who are ready to step into their power, then you must be willing to show the world all of who you are. You must have the guts to throw off the chains of modesty and mediocrity in order to be the light that the world needs."
Throwing off the chains does, in fact, take guts. Guts that I have on occasion, but more often then not, I feel I don't have the courage to take the risks needed. Staying comfortable prevents growth, and achieving what you want means blind leaps of faith need to sometimes be taken.
