Boldness is a state of mind, one that children usually have but that many adults lose as they grow up. When you are bold you do not let fear or hesitation affect your decisions, and your actions may be surprising to many because of the quickness of your decision making. Adults may lose the boldness of childhood for many reasons, including family and other responsibilities. Some of the most successful people in the business world have boldness to thank for this success. These individuals decide what they want to achieve and then they do it.
