“The most difficult thing is the decision to act; the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward.”  ~Amelia Earhart

What is one thing you’ve been thinking about doing, wanting—even yearning to do—but not acted upon? Start first by declaring it to the world! If you’re really courageous, share it below. If you keep it a secret, how likely is it to happen? Sure, no one would be around to see you fail if you kept it a secret, but it’s also true that no one would be around to support and encourage you.

And I agree with Amelia: Usually the fears are just paper tigers! Need some support dealing with the paper tigers? Drop me a line and we’ll talk.

Please share your thoughts, insights and questions below. Your participation provides wisdom that all can benefit from. Thank you!
