We are so busy these days, working hard and hustling, (my favorite word!) for our dreams. Do yourself a favor, and pull over on the side of your journey, and look back on how far you have come.

Pat yourself on the back; and remind yourself that in your fearless, brave, and tireless state of mind you are fabulous, too!

Not feeling so fearless and fabulous? Are your fearful thoughts holding you hostage and stopping you from taking your big, bold journey?

I’ve been there. Scared out of my mind and ready to give up and quit.

Doubting myself and saying things like…

“I don’t know what to do or how to do it.”

“No one will buy from me anyway.”

“I’m doing this alone. I need help, and I don’t know who to ask or how.”

“There’s no way I can make this dream of mine a success!”

I know these lies; I used to say them to myself.

The single most difficult part about being successful, at anything, is overcoming the voice in your head that says you can’t.

How did I get over it? I have a life and business coach. And instead of letting me quit or even coast, she pushed me to do even more.

These have been my magical moments on my journey.

Finding someone who pushes you harder than you thought possible when you feel broken down on the side of your journey is exactly what you need, especially when the going gets tough and you are ready to turn back and quit.

On this journey in life, there are deciding moments when you can choose to go with the mainstream or choose to go it alone. Or you could dare to take a bolder, more authentic path, trusting the only things you know to trust, your gumption, your guts, and your God.

Every moment, you are given the opportunity to dream big and to dream often. You can hold your delightful, fabulous fantasies in your head and heart as often as you like. In fact, the more you do, the more you’ll draw those dreams to reality and really have fun.

Allow inspiration to fill you with enthusiasm and the expectation of magic and marvelous synchronicities, as the best and right people, situations, and opportunities fall into place along your journey to help bring your dreams into reality.

And even when your journey seems risky or less safe, you may know intuitively that your choice, albeit a bit scary, is none-the-less, juicier and fabulous than traveling the road of status quo. You don’t have to go it alone on your journey, be fearless and fabulous and reach out and ask for some roadside assistance.
