This is idiotic but I'm going to try it!

Conquering your fear is a whole lot easier said than done. It’s easy to visualize standing on top of a massive skyscraper and screaming in your best Leonardo DiCaprio voice, “I’m the king of the world”, but when you have an acute fear of heights a trip to the top of the ridiculously safe Empire State Building viewing terrace can reduce you to a sniveling little girl. A part of you says, “just go look over the edge” and another part of your brain shouts, “no you moron, don’t you love your life? What is wrong with you? Stay inside where there is safety and Starbucks.”

Today try to do something that you are scared of. Step out on a limb and chase your dreams. The worst thing that can happen is you can totally ruin your life, but hey, at least you tried.

Live with no regrets.
