  • It’s amazing how strong the temptation can be to dismiss, numb, ignore, and/or eliminate our less-pleasant emotions. They are messages, our friends guiding us to expand and grow, pursuing what we love, and operating as our best selves.

    Thank you for this well-written article that illustrates this so beautifully! The power to transform ones life thru transforming ones self really does lie within!!!

  • These are great tips – thanks for sharing them! You are so right about the impact of overcoming fear on self-confidence. One of the habits I’m working on this year is stepping outside my comfort zone and confronting my fears as often as possible. I took some baby steps at first, but those have raised my level of confidence and gotten me excited about tackling even bigger things. Next week I’m going to confront my fear of heights with a zipline/ropes course adventure, and I can’t wait to see how conquering that expands my confidence even more – once I do one thing I thought I could never do, WHAT ELSE is possible?? Taking control over fear is truly transformational.
