I used to be afraid to take big leaps in my life which led to me feeling stuck in situations that didn’t serve me for way too long. I remained stuck in a job or five that I hated that weren’t in alignment for me, an abusive relationship and countless other things.
Once I finally leapt and took action to change my situations I never once said, “Wow! I wish I was back in that thing that sucked.”
Why did I stay? One of the biggest reasons was I was afraid to play big and be seen in the world because I might fail and everyone would witness my failing. Being afraid to be seen as a failure kept me stuck.
I looked back at my life and looked at all the times I failed like when I was learning to walk. I fell down thousands of times (failing at walking) before I could do it successfully do it. And even though I’m now a master at walking (I walk four miles almost everyday) I still fall down sometimes.
The lesson I learned is that I totally might fail. People may have laughed at me, judged me and though of me as a failure. Sometimes it knocked me down. Often times it hurt really bad. But…since I’m writing this right here right now the truth is I never died from failing. Woohoo! Go me!!!
I realized it was worth risking failing to risk achieving awesomeness and greatness.
What are you willing to risk to achieve awesomeness and greatness? Join the conversation by posting a comment at the bottom of this post. I’m looking forward to reading your responses.
The awesome in me sees and bows to the awesome in you,
I have a couple of epic events happening. If you feel called to be there, but haven’t signed up yet it may because you are afraid to take the leap. Or maybe this is the first time you’ve heard about it. 🙂
My soul brother Ryan Montbleau and I would love for you to join us in beautiful Santa Teresa, Costa Rica for Rock Your Life Retreat happening March 14-18, 2016.
Imagine this… You, me, Ryan Montbleau and 22 people from all walks of life gathering together for five days in epically beautiful Costa Rica with the intention of rocking their lives by stopping to smell the awesome. We will enjoy amazing sunsets daily, frolic in the warm Pacific Ocean, eat delicious food, relax in hammocks, share deep conversations under the stars, practice yoga and meditation, listen to the sweet sounds of Ryan’s guitar and voice and so much more.
It’s hard to put into words what the experience is like at a Rock Your Life Retreat so my advice would be, if you feel a calling to join us…do it. Don’t wait much longer because we are already over halfway sold out and spaces are going really fast. There are only nine left!
Check out all the deets. Payment plans starting as low as $188/month. Rock Your Life Retreat.
Check out this video where Ryan and I discuss the situation happening in Costa Rica.
The second event is with my soul sister and genius photographer Britt Nemeth. She is the one who took the beautiful photos above. We are hosting a full day retreat together in Denver, Colorado in January for entrepreneurs who want to infuse their authentic awesome selves into their businesses. The retreat comes with a mini branding photo shoot with Britt amongst other amazing workshops. If you are interested let me know right >>>here.
