In this episode I share with you the beginning of two stories that have just recently collided. But before I do that, I report back on two listeners who have taken action on naming their inner critics. They are practicing the kind of bravery Todd Henry talks about here …

It’s tempting to believe that some people are born brave, and others are naturally timid.

Bravery is a discipline.
