Be fearless in the pursuit of your dreams. Bravely go the direction your heart leads you...try a unique food, go after a new job, restructure your personal relationships or change your daily routine to leave the familiar behind and embrace a different way of living. See what happens when you let yourself be bold and unafraid. Embrace your inner Warrior. As you face a new challenge, ask yourself, "What is the worst that could happen?" If you can live with the answer, be fearless. What is holding you back?
