Greater than…

Your purpose, passion and pursuit is greater than your fear.

I meet people, amazing people, people that allow their fear keep them from their purpose. The fear of failure, fear of doubt and fear of being wrong.

This paralyzing fear is the reason why that dream stays on a note pad, in a journal or on their mobile phone. It is the reason it never becomes a reality.

They choose to fail before they have even tried. Now, fear is normal. It is part of what we face by virtue of being human. What we do with the fear however is our choice.


Let the fear be your fuel, let it challenge you and push you. Don’t let it keep you from your dreams.

One lesson I have learn’t as a founder and a lesson I hold close to date is this, I learn’t to DO IT AFRAID.

There are steps I have taken in life with my knees knocking, palms sweating and heart beating, but I took them anyway.

Have I regretted taking those steps? NO! You only regret the things you don’t do and the steps you do not take.

So let’s summarize it this way, what do you need to do this week AFRAID?




Nike says it best, “JUST DO IT!”

Until next time,
