What is your contribution to the world?

In the late 1800s, two ships were wrecked at opposite ends of the sub-Antarctic Auckland Island, within a few months of each other.  Neither crew knew the other was there.

Are you afraid to step into your light?

If you know what you want to be known for, why aren’t you out there doing it yet? Are you afraid of what others may think? Or what might happen when you release your ideas to the world? Perhaps there’s a fear of being criticised, or ridiculed. Fear of falling flat on your face. Fear […]
