If you don't want to do it, then you might have to right now, but long term you need to find a way out. If you're scared to do it, then you have to do it because you can't teach yourself that you back down from scary things. Either way the answer is action. You move away from it or you move into it but you Have. To. Move! Much love, Evan. #Believe PS. If you want to move forward, join my Movement Makers program.
