Fears Can Empower You

Our next station was the ropes course, which I was not looking forward to. I had been on a ropes course before but this one looked high, and that alone terrified me. Heights were my biggest fear. I thought to myself, “As long as I coach these students while staying on the ground, I will be okay.” My thoughts soothed me. After all, I was here to help these students conquer their fears—certainly not mine.
