Fear is a Great Motivator :Fear often leads to inaction during a crisis situation. We are so afraid that we stay in our comfort zone and therein lies the danger.The key is to turn that fear into adrenaline.

We All Do ItWhy do we do it? We all have too much baggage in our lives. Things we buy and never use, or things we love but ends up packed away in the basement , garage or loft. We become hoarders.
