When we are outside our element, we have no choice but to challenge ourselves in order to win against all odds, and in the face of fear and uncertainty.

This is how we reinvent ourselves, and become the better versions of ourselves than ever before.

All confidence which is not absolute and entire, is dangerous. There are few occasions but where a man ought either to say all, or conceal all; for, how little so ever you have revealed of your secret to a friend, you have already said too much if you think it not safe to make him privy to all particulars.
