Straight Up: Every Single Asshole Fear You’ve Got Going On In Your Head Comes From Not Knowing

In: Confidence, Hard Stuff, Lady Balls, Success,

It was too hard. Too complicated. Too confusing. Too __________.

But the truth is, most of the time we just aren't making the effort.

Everything you could ever want to know is right inside Barnes and Noble. So is it the thing you're really afraid of, or is it the work?
