I had one of those amazing experiences recently. You know the kind where you can’t wait to share it with others?
I participated in a 7-Day online fear challenge ran by my mentor, Jesse Elder. It was incredible, including the people I met. As a result, I’ve had some real breakthroughs. Boom!
I’ll share some of my experience in a future post.
In the meantime, here are three steps you can take to get moving towards a breakthrough of your own.
1. Be True to You
I’ve heard it. I’ve even said before. But, I haven’t always lived it fully. Why is that? I suspect I was missing some clarity. That missing piece was holding me back in life.
After a week of stepping out of my comfort zone, I am refreshed and fully committed to following my truth. I’ve seen the other side, and I love it. It starts with being true to me.
2. Find your Lion
There is a documentary called Finding Joe which summarizes Joseph’s Campbell’s motif, The Hero’s Journey. I highly recommend it.
In the documentary, it shares a story about sheep and lions. The point of the story is to remind you that sometimes as lions you are not living your truth. You may be a lion acting like a sheep.
There is nothing wrong with being a sheep. However, being the true lion you are is where the magic happens. Once you realize this, it’s time to shake things up. Find the Lions (people) that inspire you to become a better version of yourself. Then surround yourself with them.
3. Roar and Soar
As a new entrepreneur, there will be some ups and downs. You can take new courses, read books, and listen to successful coaches all day long and still not be any closer to accomplishing your dreams. The missing component is the process of taking massive action to apply what you learn.
Get out there and roar like a lion by taking massive action. Learn, train, and apply. Write something and then hit the publish button. Join an accountability group that will help push you through your comfort zone. Take inspired action and keep moving forward.
As I learn to be me on this growth-seeking journey, I’m finding peace, excitement, and what it means to be a lion.
Who is the real you? Are you hanging out with sheep or lions? Please let me know in the comments.
High five, hugs, and knuckles,
