Anyone can empathize with how uncomfortable it would be for someone with Vinny's background to ask for help. But by avoiding this vulnerability, Vinny had effectively dead-ended his career.
For most of us, avoidance becomes a way of life. We barricade ourselves behind an invisible barrier and don't venture out because beyond the wall is pain. This safe space Phil and I call the "comfort zone."
Imagine the ball hooked on elastic. You control a ball on an elastic string. You must avoid tons of different enemies by moving your mouse around the screen. Try to avoid as more collisions as possible having in mind that you manage another end of string.
