‘Alter Your Life by Altering Your Attitude of Mind’

“Fear is like being invited to a party by a complete stranger to celebrate the life of someone you’ve never met, when you had other plans.

Should you choose to attend, however irrational it may surely seem, upon presenting your invitation at the gate you’d notice that it was in your own handwriting.  Then you’d be warmly greeted by the most wonderful, familiar faces – everyone so excited, like you, because, it turns out, you’re about to meet the person you’ve always dreamed you’d one day become.


Fear, good.
