Day 17 – 50 Day Change Challenge – Priorities

50DayChallenge

So on day 17 I’m looking at what’s really important. I’m always amazed at my 9 year old daughter’s game plan. At the beginning of the year she’s all fired up about saving money so she can buy her Christmas presents.

Whatever your beliefs or methods of dealing with fear, I’m sure you’ve experienced fear and you’ll agree that this potent emotion has caused you to stagnate in some area of your life at some time.
