One thing I learned in life is you Go Big Or Go Home no matter what your doing. Whether its moving out of state, or starting your own business, you always give it all you got. "I live by 'Go big or go home.' That's with everything."
True individuality is more about being in tune with who you truly are, whether you're expressing yourself physically, mentally, or spiritually; individuality arises from living without fear of what other might think or say about you and without being swayed by their opinions, leaving you free to lead life without caring about judgments made by the outside world.
Helping others without any expectation and without gain is just as much a gift to yourself as it is to the person you give to. Where you come from, what you look like, and what your past holds do not define you as an individual--you are what you make yourself to be. Strength doesn't necessarily come from resisting fear, weakness, or any other feeling and overcoming it. Strength comes from looking at those things straight on--and accepting them as they really are.
