Being self conscious of how we look gets in the way of our mission. Worrying about how we look is a recipe for failure. We will forever have our eyes on the wrong thing.

We need new experiences to grow. To face challenges and the unknown – these are at the heart of experiences. Day in and day out, the comfort of sameness does not lead us on a journey of exploration.
