We are each, in some way, holding ourselves back.

Fear plays a role in our lives equally crucial and detrimental. It’s always there, waiting in the wings if not centre stage in our mind.

Ultimately, fear is trying to help. And it does. It stops us from casually strolling off a cliff, investing in bad business decisions, and protects us from embarrassment and humiliation. Mostly.

We don’t do it alone.

During his keynote speech at World Domination Summit, the comedian / actor / writer Zack Anner openly expressed his gratitude for his best friend. Since Kindergarten, this person has been a constant companion for Zack (who has Cerebral Palsy & is wheelchair-bound). As result of the love of his friend, Zack has had opportunities, experiences and joys that would have otherwise never been possible.

Zack then set a homework task for everyone in the audience; think of someone who was there for you at some point in your life—someone who helped you grow—then, during lunch break call them, and thank them.
