Our Fears are our only Limitation Some Silicon Mountain Web-Developers who decided to face their fears by applying for the Google Udacity Scholarship have won the 2nd phase of the competition.
Overcoming our fears is never an easy task or decision to take because it comes with a price. When we take a grasp of the price from afar, we see reasons to go for it. But when we take a look at the challenges we decide to give up.
However, a lot await these brave developers.

Every “next level” in life will demand a new you. You gotta be open to that or you’ll never level up
