"Most of our obstacles would melt away if, instead of cowering before them, we should make up our minds to walk boldly through them."
—Orison Swett Marden
I remember the first time I did a fire walk and stood in front of the hot coals. I felt nervous and yes, even a little afraid but I felt the fear and strode boldly across the hot coals. That night I realize that the metaphor was the most important part of the experience. I felt it in my body the lesson that in life we can and maybe should feel fear in the face of the unknown or challenging events but we should stride boldly forward and we will get to the other side.
