Decide You Want It More
The good kind of armor... that doesn't make us shrink from the humanity of life, but instead allows us to face and conquer the constructs of our own mind.
Fear is entirely in our heads. With the power of imagination, we construct the most elaborate limitations around those subjects that challenge us. Whatever it may be--name the topic--you've likely formulated all the possible (and impossible) negative outcomes for your success.
Some people stop right there.
Those people that decide they want it more than they are afraid of it, harden their determination around them like armor and walk right into the battlefield of their fears. We all take blows in life. But, when you're shielded with determination, no blow has the power to conquer you.
Decide you want it more than you're afraid of it. Armor up. And go get it.
