What do facing your fears, leadership, and success have in common? They require us to view ourselves with honesty and to view others with empathy and respect. We all face a variety of monsters – hurdles of all shapes and sizes. But you can learn to see the beauty in the monster. That’s when you start to build the confidence needed to face the normal risks associated with learning and success. Don’t fear the challenges and imperfections, whether in yourself or others. It’s time to stop denying, avoiding, or denigrating them. It’s time to go dancing with monsters.
