Something so large that you are scared to even talk about?
So scary, it's hard to even think about?
And yet ... you feel that taking action would bring big changes to your life...
In August of 2009, I published my first book. This was a dream I held onto for over 20 years. Writing a book. Being open. Letting other people know what I think and who I am. In 2005, a mentor (who I've never met face to face), Hal M. challenged me to do the unthinkable. Writhe the first draft. I found the more I wrote, the less writhing i did. I finally was listening to my dream instead of my critics - including my inner-critic.It took me 4 years to find the courage to develop that first draft into what would become an award-winning book in inspirational and motivational categories.
Many people talk a good game. Some actually live it. And a few - like Brene Brown - and those who are closest to me - share it.
Brene Brown's is a researcher, mentor to many, and a woman who DARES GREATLY and reminds me it's OK to be my authentic self.
