He who is not every day conquering some fear has not learned the secret of life.

He who is not every day conquering some fear has not learned the secret of life. – Ralph Waldo Emerson.

One of life’s greatest fears is the fear of change. There is great comfort in the status quo. There is great confidence with success. Change . . . admitting we need to enhance our skills and gain new knowledge . . . makes many people uneasy. With change comes the fear we will fail . . . the fear of failure motivates many to simply embrace the status quo.

Our growth mindset – our passion for growth – requires us to embrace the discomfort of change. We must overcome the fear of failure and cultivate a culture where failures are natural steps on our path to success. We are on a journey to elite; we must learn to conquer our fears.
