Can You Make a Change or Are You Paralyzed by Fear?

There is a powerful Ted talk on fear and being willing to “be a domino” by Luvvie Ajayi. One of my favorite thoughts she shares is “In a world that wants us to whisper, I choose to yell.” This talk is worth 10 minutes of your day as it reminds us all that we have an obligation to speak truth to power and that all of us are scared to do so but must do it anyway. It also makes me examine where fear shows up in my career. Do I sit on the plane or do I risk the jump? How about you? Do you jump and make necessary changes or do you let fear keep you comfortable even though you may be in pain doing so?

Let me know if I can help give you a push.
