Connect 2015 member Suresh Mistry of Alquity on how to make Fearlessness live

Taking this analogy a little further, to create a ripple you must first have the courage to throw the stone. Letting go of the stone means that you have to be prepared to fail. My experience is that the fear of failure is the greatest barrier to success in any aspect of life.
