I've been researching the habits of highly effective (purpose-driven) people and one thing that stood out was this: no one had a perfect ride to their "successful" moment or story.
There were so many moments of Me Too in Hadiya Roderique's Globe & Mail article that I felt like I should take her out for a glass of my favorite malbec to say Thank you.
We all get scared sometimes. Present company included. I was afraid when I moved to Canada in 2003. I was afraid to start new in a place where I didn't know anybody. I was afraid to start a new job with no friends, no mentors or sponsors. I was afraid when I wanted to fall in love.
Life in general is full of questions. But most times asking the right questions will not only give you the answers you need, but it can also provide the real connection we human beings crave.
