We all have stories of courage. But, with rare exception, we hide them. We judge ourselves and deem our stories unworthy. They’re either too small, too meaningless or prideful and vast.
So, instead of sharing, we keep them to ourselves. Tucked away for no one else to see. Problem is, when we bury our stories, we bury our souls. Doing this denies us the expression and connection that comes from sharing the moments that define our power. And, it denies others the gift of knowing they’re not alone, and the hope that something better is possible.
Every single story matters. The more we deny them to ourselves and the world, the more pain we endure and co-create.
So, here’s my question…
What if you could “get your brave on,”offer your story of courage with the world and find yourself supported by others sharing their stories, too??
Imagine people just like YOU around the globe each facing a fear and then sharing it to not only step in their courage to but to inspire others to do the same.
We are starting a movement, and it begins with YOU…
In losing a dear friend to breast cancer and discovering that I was alive and breathing but I was NOT really living I finally understood WHY I was playing small, staying safe and not living full out… it was because of a nasty four-letter word, FEAR! In her honour I wrote MY FEAR LIST and began saying YES to fear instead of hiding or running from it.
I started being courageous in the name of coming alive.
Now, when I decide to do something, I tend to go all in. So I started with one of my greatest fears; jumping out of a perfectly good airplane.… But, here’s the thing, I knew the only way I would be able to lean into fear and actually jump was if I made it not just about ME but found something bigger than me to believe in and strive for which actually turned my fear into fuel.
I decided to fall 10,000 feet to raise $10,000 to build a school in Nicaragua. And THAT why was exactly what I needed to get MY brave on.
Okay, so that was a little bit extreme. Not everybody is going to jump out of a plane as the “opening move” to their courage campaign. But we can all start with whatever courageous step feels right to us.
And, that’s why I’m writing this to you now. I am inviting YOU to face one of your fears and share it with the world on August 28th during our global Day of Courage! And before you start listing the excuses why you can’t (because you know deep down that is just the fear talking)
I want you to know that when you say YES to your courage you will be making a big difference not only in your life but in the world.
Your story of courage will inspire others to find their courage and imagine the ripple effect of courage around the world if we spread this movement and get people facing fears on every continent!
This isn’t about you being courageous alone, this is about us, a global movement of Courage Crusaders, rising up, taking steps, supporting each other and sharing our stories.
You need it. I need it. And, honestly, right now, the world needs it more than ever!
