What do the the Beatles, Lucille Ball, Michael Jordan and Walt Disney have in common?  Franklin D. Roosevelt once said in his first inaugural speech, "The Only Thing We Have To Fear Is Fear Itself".  Fear is what keeps us from reaching our potential.  Fear holds us back.  Fear will attack the driving force within us keeping us stagnant and safe instead of bold and excited.

As I write this, I am also speaking to my inner self.  After losing almost everything in divorce several years ago, I'm trying to get my life back on track and actually have a life.  I'm looking at buying a small house, something I can call home, but it is scary.  The economy isn't great, the country seems to be going to hell in a hand basket and buying a house is a big deal for most.

I've been having a rough time deciding whether I should take the plunge or not...then I saw this video.
