The Heroes Journey + Daring Greatly


  “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat”. ~ Theodore Roosevelt

How you choose to walk through the world requires a process of distillation, the understanding that the mind is the architect of your destiny. When failure is not an option, you can influence the future and have the ability to shape your destiny by achieving most anything even in spite of insurmountable circumstances.

Harness the power to coalesce the mind.

* What do you desire in the short term? Create a six to eighteen month plan – tweak as necessary.

Create moments in life that take your breath away. Find the magic in everyday life. Create momentum by keeping dreams alive. Choose words and thoughts wisely; create an epic journey, design a methodology to pursue what you desire in its purest form.

No longer live under the radar - resolve to rise.  What’s real is that you exist. Expose your heart; let fear dissipate into the ethers. 

When dreams burn bright, radiance abounds. Live sovereign bliss in the here and now; create equilibrium by keeping spiritually calibrated.

Make your way to a space of peace and deep reflection - meditate daily for internal maintenance. 

* The question I ask myself as a motivator and coach: How am I going to get people in a position to want what they want and go for it? To be healed and self-heal as needed, so to accomplish all they claim they want for themselves, in spite of fear or temporary road blocks?

The answer - start here: Take one simple step forward and begin again.
