Daunting Terrain

In The Rise, author Sarah Lewis declares,

I still remember the shudder when I sensed a knowing as sure as fact—that I might only truly become my fullest self if I explored and stayed open to moving through daunting terrain.


Yesterday I received a short clip of baby Sophie. She’s just a couple of weeks beyond her first birthday and my niece better start lacing up her running shoes. Holding on to the tip of her father’s finger, Sophie put one foot in front of the other. She lost her balance right in front of a staircase and as soon as her knees hit the ground, she was climbing. Going up.

Somewhere along the line, we pick up a fear of failure.

How do you think we can lose it?

One small risk at a time?
