In order to reach your true potential, it necessitates developing an appetite for intelligent risks.
I want to share an article I read from http://www.josiahharry.com on the need to step out of your comfort zone and be true to your beliefs/goals. I will leave you with a quote I also enjoy:
“Being authentic is the ability to be true to oneself. Living an authentic life requires the ability to be true to our own wants, needs and desires and not live our lives by the opinion of others. Being authentic is the ability to make self-honoring choices and stand firmly in who we are in our core. Being true to ourselves gives us the insight and compassion to see others for who they are, not who we expect them to be. It frees us up from the judgment of ourselves and others and it gives others the freedom to be themselves as well. ”
