I used to be scared of cooking, and well, mostly just messing up cooking. I’ve definitely done it plenty of times. It’s one area of life that I’ve really pushed through fear (out of necessity) to find a place of enjoyment. That’s the analogy for today: we’re talking about food, but it’s more than that. … More What’s the WORST that could happen?
I have a lot of ideas. I mean, it’s fun to always be thinking, but it can be a big pain too. Especially when you want to do THEM ALL!! Anybody with me? The trouble is that you can’t. It’s impossible. Truth is that the healthiest people, businesses, teams and families know what’s most important … More FEARlies : It’s OK to Quit
This episode makes me laugh. The journey through the book Do One Thing Everyday That Scares You continues on today. My quotes/challenges are getting much more specific now. The first week leaned more heavily on pondering the generalities of fears and allowed me to choose the direction. The next 3 days consist of trying, then learning, something … More Day 1 JUGGLING (Try Something New)
Last night, I went down to the hotel lounge to shoot a quick video for the FEARlies series. I thought I had a decent idea to share with y’all, but as I began to film, some ladies sat down two tables away from me. It was really quiet in there and I was talking relatively … More I met some ladies. (and more to the story)
Yesterday, my wife and I drove over 1000 miles in one day. We loved sharing the day via FACEBOOK LIVE with family and friends across the country. The interactions helped the day go by so much faster and we had fun making them. I didn’t want to attempt something that might “fail” because traveling that … More Raw and unedited from the road!
Just open your eyes and see the opportunities to live, grow, love and serve. They’re right there. We just need to step into them. Don’t let fear lie my friends. Here’s the story from yesterday:
Do you ever say, “NO” to something because you might fail or fail someone or look like a failure or whatever other “fail phrase” makes sense? Me too. Too often, I might add. Although, the past few years have gotten a TON better. This series confronts the fact that FEAR LIES to us everyday. No, … More I sent the email.
I totally balked. Sorry for the sports analogies, but I played tons of sports as a kid and even though I don’t play (or watch) them as much as I used to, they are still a part of my DNA. If you don’t know, a balk in baseball is when a pitcher makes a move … More I gave into the fear.
The third day in the book I’m reading asks people to consider their “inner daring.” What is it that is deep down inside you? What would you dare to do if you knew you’d succeed? Even then, would there be doubts in your mind? Today isn’t as much of a practical step into fear, but … More Daring.
I went to bed after making the Day 1 video of my new series and I felt great about the start and the quality. Then the fear monsters came in when I woke up yesterday. I was beginning a new adventure and the doubt and questions began to rise. Have you been there? It would’ve … More I almost quit.
