1029. Extreme Challenges Help Him Overcome His Fears
“Almost every day I had to get over that fear of approaching people I don’t know. And asking them where I can sleep, asking them where I can find food, and building that nervousness up to a point where I realized the more vulnerable I was, the more willing people were to help me. And I still find that today, if I am sometimes in a business negotiation and I realize that we have both dug in deep, I somehow allow a vulnerability to creep in where I need their help somehow.”
