I’ve got to tell you, the only reason I feel so comfortable and confident encouraging you to put yourself out there, chase your dreams, and live outside of your comfort zone is because I’m doing it. Integrity is a virtue that is very high on my list of values and I just wouldn’t feel comfortable empowering people to do something I’m not willing to do in my own life. I’m not going to sit here and tell you it’s easy because it’s not but it is worth it. I’m not going to cheer you on from the sideline as I sit comfortably in my lawn chair watching you play the game. I’m right there in the game with you.
Sometimes it’ll be hard, we’ll get dirty and sweaty and we’ll feel like quitting. Sometimes it’ll hurt and we’ll wonder why we ever started playing to begin with. I know from experience that all it takes is one great play to change the course of the game. We’ll feel like we’re on top of the world, our emotions will be riding high, and we’ll remember that it’s moments like those that make it worth playing. So don’t let the fear of losing keep you from playing the game. Even though you’ll be down at times, the game isn’t over until you say it is. You can take all of the timeouts and extra rounds needed. When it comes down to it, it’s not about winning or losing but doing it for the love of the game.
Whether that game is getting back out into the dating world, switching career paths 10 years in, or making a big move to support you building your dream, get in the game. Anything other than that means that you’re on the sidelines in your own life. Stop being a spectator and start playing the game. It doesn’t matter what your current record is. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been on a losing streak. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been benched for years. You have to start somewhere. Start warming up, coming up with plays, and practicing because the 2018 season is just beginning and your timing couldn’t be better!

I’m sending you lots of love and wishing you all that you need to get in the game in 2018! May this be an incredible season for you!
In order to support you to get in the game, I encourage you to create an Intention Plan. It’s not just about playing the game but having well-crafted plays to execute.
