People fear what they do not know.
People feel what they cannot understand.
This is one of the key elements that fuel the ugly phenomena called racism.
Successful people are open to change. Successful people place others around them that bring something different to the table than they can.
Introspective question.... Look at the inner circle that is closest to you? Are they all mirror images of you? If so, you will always be limited in your scope of influence and relationships.
Today, cancel the fear of the unknown. Step out of your comfort zone and open up to new perspectives.
