"Courage is being scared to death, but saddling up anyway." ― John Wayne
How would you live if you had no fear at all?
Think about it. Would you...
Quit your job?
Start a business?
Speak your truth?
Say yes more?
Stop drinking alcohol?
Run a marathon?
Travel the world?
Say no more?
Climb a mountain?
Courageous people are still afraid, but they don't let the fear paralyze them.
A little secret. Every time I share from my heart with the world - I feel fear — every post, video, etc. But the more I do it, the more I step into my braver higher-self. The more I stop playing small, the bigger my life gets. It's scary most of the time - and so worth it. That's why I feel passionate about encouraging you and your dreams!
"Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage." ― Anais Nin
