To create an inspired and effective life, we must cultivate confidence as well as vulnerability and inquiry. Confidence requires that we clarify and align with what is important, and learn to see reality with more accuracy. If we aim to question everything, we must develop curiosity and the courage to step into the unknown. By embracing these and other primary paradoxes of life, you can become more present and fully alive for each moment: in your work, relationships, and everyday life.
