There be dragons.

There be dragons.

Fear is hot.  Big thinkers are talking about it:  Elizabeth Gilbert, Brené Brown, Steven Pressfield and every Seth Godin altmba program grad.

Why?

Knowledge is free. Want to learn something? Ask Google. Want to get money to launch a business? Use Kickstarter or Pozzible.

If we are one click away from change, what’s stopping us?

Fear.  When the cartographers of the 1400s were making maps, they drew dragons to mark the edge of the known world.

The expression ‘There be dragons” was born.

I’ve learned that when we do something that really matters fear joins us. It’s a test, only a test. It’s how we develop our courage muscle. Dancing with dragons is not for everyone but it us for us. We tame fear.

Daniel Flynn launched Thankyou water. His company has provided millions of dollars to fund clean water, food programs and reduce global poverty. It wasn’t easy for years. He stayed strong and he delivered big. Click these words for his inspiring video.

Fear. Name it. Tame it and go.

Go because the thing you are meant to do matters.

Go because only you can do it your way.

Here are the wise ones a step ahead. They’ll keep you going.
