Transform Fear and You Transform the World

Wow what a powerful message! Strait and simple and to the point. Such a challenge to live.

It reminds me of my 20’s. I set out to travel the world with one intention. That if I had faith in the universe, if I had faith in life, it would bring me everywhere I needed to go, to do everything I needed to do, to meet everyone I needed to meet, to become who I am supposed to become. That was my intention.

At the time I was a spry, and itching 20 year old bartender, hating how unfulfilling my job was. I figured if I could be successful here, at 20 making more money than most of my clients were making, and I had achieved what society deemed success in terms of financial gain, then I was screwed because it didn’t make me any happier.

So I set out on a mission. I left everything I knew, sold my car, left my boyfriend, packed up my home and went to teach English in Japan for a year. That was an experience in itself but the real awakening began just afterwards when I strapped on my nap sack and went traveling through South East Asia for 6 months. I knew no one, I was alone, and I met all of my fears.

I landed on a beach in Thailand living in a beach hut bungalow doing yoga before breakfast every morning with a guy that looked like osama bin laden. I lived with a big hairy spider, that scared the crap out of me, went swimming with the sharks ( no not in any kind of cage, equipped with only flippers and a mask and the open sea) and I realized that we are never alone unless we want to be.

The big take away I got from that trip was “No Fear” and “Decorate Your Moment” because that’s what life is. Neal Donald Walshes video brings me right back to the trip that taught me so much about life because I was confronted by how limiting our fears are.

I wrote about it in my book ” From Bankrupt to $900 a day Selling Mops. Rising Entrepreneurs How to Mop up on cash in Any Economy!” coming soon.

I felt guided to share my thoughts on this powerful video. And I am encouraging you to share with me yours.

Full Power to Your Success!
