As you may know, I wrote about fear in my October newsletter (PDF), and our thoughts overlapped.
Watching Jim’s video, however, I began to think about the fear some of my friends have of the new president-elect. They’re convinced that he’s going to bring the country to its destruction. Or even worse (I imagine), that he’ll turn the country into a Garden of Eden.

- What’s holding you back, then? How big of a difference can you make by taking action?
