“Heroes are born when fear dies. We all seem to recognize when someone has transcended, even if just for a moment, the limitations of their beliefs of mortality and weakness. We admire these individuals, for they remind us of our transcendent nature. We are comforted somehow to know that we all possess such capacity for greatness and that ours, too, will be waiting on us when we need it most. This greatness is real, we have seen it in all types of human beings, but the idea that is waiting for you is misleading.
Greatness waits for no person, but falls on he who seeks it. Greatness is only waiting for you to invite it in, believing, and allow what comes. When I speak of greatness, I am speaking of fulfillment in any endeavor you choose with your heart. I am speaking of surrendering to the heart and following wherever it may lead you. I am speaking of letting go of fear and replacing it with thoughts of faith, gratitude, trust, and courage; for it is these thoughts that will bring these things into your life.”
Pete Koerner, in “The Belief Formula”

Compiler’s Note: I originally read this book 10 years ago and found it to be of such value to me that I wound up using passages from it every week on Pondercentral.com for all of 2008. As such, you will see numerous passages from this excellent book for the rest of this year.
