Hello my love,
This month, I’ve committed to doing something that scares the daylight out of me – finishing my book proposal for a NY publisher! It’s my biggest dream… and the thing I am most afraid of failing at! I need all the COURAGE I can muster, so…
Our SPARK for this week is: I was BORN with COURAGE!
In all my years of helping people live their purpose, one (and only one) thing holds people back: FEAR. Your monkey mind (aka animal instinct brain) tries to keep you safe with all sorts of negative self-talk like, “You’ll probably fail!”… “Who do you think you are to have such a big dream?”… “Are you crazy? You’ll never make money doing that!”
Sound familiar? Your animal instinct brain is all about survival so it is trying to keep you safe. But you must pursue your dreams with courage!
My mind has been SO afraid that this publisher will reject me and my biggest dream will DIE, that I’ve busied myself with other projects and hidden like a small child. Well – that was before August 30. I was teaching my Certificate in Positive Psychology students GOAL ACHIEVEMENT and asked them to commit to completing a BIG HAIRY AUDACIOUS GOAL by our next class, Sept. 25… which meant I had to do the same. At first I committed to a smaller goal and *knew* I was hiding. So I mustered courage, upped the ante, and committed to to write the material that the publisher asked for by this weekend.
I am on track, but with just a week left, I need more COURAGE to make it through. Maybe you can relate. You have a dream but are afraid of failure. You have a desire, but fear rejection. You have a goal, but think you lack the resilience to persist.
We’re in this together. We were BORN with COURAGE. Just watch a baby try to walk… she falls down, and gets back up, falls down, and gets back up. We each were born with courage and I’m using every bit of it to complete this goal and hit “send” on my computer.
