The “arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.” MLK
Last night in the midst of watching the violence on tv, I found myself compelled to write this message to my community of Certified Fearless Living Coaches…
What I write to my coaches, I write to you too. Because as they are on their Fearless Journey, you are too, my friend. You wouldn’t be reading these words if you were not.
And one more thing. We’re going to be okay. Promise.
====== Take a deep breath before you read my words ======
Let’s remember who we are.
We are a people who court freedom, and in order to live it, we practice being fearless.
We are a people who help others see their way through their fear so they can live the life their soul intended.
We are a people who shape our words to be empowering and choose our actions to be wise and loving (even when it’s hard as can be) to be able to look ourselves in the mirror and know we are an example of freedom.
True freedom isn’t about doing anything you want to do; it is using the wisdom within to do what is necessary to live a truthful integrated life. One that you can stand in and be proud of.
You have the power to make a difference in this frustrating, confusing, and frightening world that swirls around us.
You have the skills to make an impact to turn the tide towards love, compassion, and truth.
You have the will and backbone to be a model of integrity even in the midst of our humanity.
Today, you are needed more than ever.
Remember, if you do nothing but live a life that practices the art of fearless living, you will impact a minimum of one thousand people to live the life their soul intended.
If you coach, contribute or support even one additional person, you will impact two thousand people, and each person after that will expand your reach.
For every person you coach and support, you are literally breaking the hold fear has on thousands and thousands of mothers, fathers, friends, brothers, sisters, coworkers, colleagues, children, and so on.
Your commitment to being fearless is needed more than ever. Commit to it. Devote yourself to it. Be a way-shower for freedom.
The world needs you. It needs all of us. Every. Single. One. Of. Us.
But especially you!
A fearless life is about becoming the person you were born to be.
Nothing more. Nothing less.
It’s the greatest freedom in the world to be who you were meant to be.
I truly believe you have all you need to make a difference in this world and that you have a destiny to fulfill. I believe that wholeheartedly. You were not born for no reason. You were born to fulfill the destiny that is yours and yours alone.
Your heart is needed more than ever. Your light is needed more than ever. You — just the way you are — is needed more than ever.
Together, we can move through the darkness because together, we are one mighty light.
I love you.
Until next time, practice being fearless,
