Stop being afraid to stand for something.
To stand out.
To stand as Yourself.
You can't reach for your future with one hand reaching back to your comfort zone.
Take a chance on yourself …
Burn your Boats!
The famous explorer Hernando Cortez landed on the shores of Vera Cruz, Mexico in 1519 and wanted his army to conquer the land for Spain. He faced an uphill battle: a fierce enemy, disease and scarce resources. Cortez knew his men wanted to quit and sail back to Spain. He knew that his men would not fight well with such an attitude. So he did something to properly motivate them. He wanted them to know that there was only one possible course. Success or death. As they marched inland to do battle, Cortez ordered one of his lieutenant’s back to the beach with a single instruction: "Burn our Boats."
