Overview

Try new things, overcome your fears, and broaden your world. You’ll feel empowered and energized when you step outside your comfort zone!

Whether it’s something little—like trying a new food—or something big—like flying to a faraway country—we feel empowered when we do something that challenges us. You can do it! John Shedd said, “A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.” Set sail from your safe harbor. Feel the wind, see new sights, and make your world bigger. These 101 true stories will help you do just that.
