“Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less.” – C.S. Lewis

There are so many situations in our life, where we are presented with choices and no answers to all our questions. And usually you will always-always have a “gut feeling” about the situation. But do we listen to these instincts? What stops us? Why are we scared to jump out of our comfort zones?
