Staring Down Your Goliath
Most likely you know the story of David and Goliath. David, an ordinary young teenager, did not consider the giant Goliath as being more powerful. With just a stone and a slingshot, he conquered Goliath.
We all have a Goliath. Your Goliath could be the fear of going back to school; excelling in your career; having an uncomfortable but necessary conversation with your leader. Your Goliath could be juggling work and home life; taking on a massive, new project at work. Maybe your Goliath is introducing yourself to conference participants and getting to know them.
