I remember meeting with a car accident when I had just learnt driving. The experience was traumatic and not my fault. It was truly an unlucky experience. My 2 princesses who were 2 and 5 then were sitting in the back with me. They were stricken with fear and it was heartbreaking to see their little faces. I clearly recall doubting my abilities to drive and wanted to stop driving. It took a lot of courage to get over this fear and hit the road once again which I did successfully.

What will your practice be this week to bring courage, discipline and motivational self talk to consciously pursue your dreams, passions, desires? Create a new default setting to replace the one you are born and raised with.
