"You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do." - E.R.
Eleanor Roosevelt was quite an amazing woman and this quote gives us a little insight into the way in which she got to be so influential. I fully agree with her statement here... I have experienced this in my own life and seen it play a part in the lives of others: when facing fear there are two reactions possible: fight or flight. Those who choose flight must live with a terrible sense of regret and those who choose to fight suffer, but for their own eventual enrichment. If we approach life with an eye for conquering our own abilities and percieved disabilities... we will get stronger with every day and unlock a potential true to who we really are and what we are really capable of.
