#53 CONQUERING YOUR FEARS – MELISSA HAYNES

Briefly, Melissa went to South Africa and lived in a national park.

Have you ever really wanted to do something but every time you even thought about doing it you just got stuck? Most people will give up on their dreams before they even try. It’s not because we’re lazy or incapable. It’s because we’ve got ghosts in our way. Some are haunted by the ghost of public humiliation, rejection, failure or even success. All are terrifying, but the only thing more terrifying than ghosts is not trying.
