About 3 years ago, there was a message in my Inbox that challenged me in a very simple way.

I kept the email in front of me to look at it everyday  and remind myself to act on it.

Here it is…


“Do one thing every day that scares you.”

Eleanor Roosevelt


The things that scare each one of us are different:

for some of us, it could be to call on a big prospect,

for others it could be to say “I love you” to someone

for others it could be to say “I’m sorry” or “Please forgive me”.

It could also be to go bungee jumping or skydiving.

It could be to speak in front of a large audience that you don’t know.

Each one of us have unique fears.

It doesn’t have to be big fears either.

If you practice confronting small fears, you will strengthen your “courage muscle” and it should be easier to face bigger challenges later on.

Am I making you feel uncomfortable?

Do you find it too challenging or demanding?

The purpose of this post isn’t to preach or to judge,

Instead, let’s try to see it from another angle.

     “Today is a day to open your eyes to the unfamiliar.”

     “Today is a day to let go of the familiar”

     “Today is a day to get out of your comfort zone”



Will you try ??????
