The Power of Courage

Do you have the courage to go where it’s uncomfortable?  Do you run from fear or do you choose to face it head on?  Only when you breakthrough your own fears and personal limitations will you see, first hand, just how POWERFUL you truly are…

And only then, will you experience the wealth and success you’re looking to create in your life and your business.

I just got back from The ‘No Excuses Summit’ in Las Vegas… And I have a personal story to share with you about the power of courage…

I’d love to hear from you!  Are you ready to take that next step past your growth edge?  Are you ready to start really LIVING the potential you have inside of you?

And please help spread the word by sharing this video with your FB and/or Twitter friends! Thank you so much!  Looking forward to sharing much more with you very soon…

To Your True Potential,

Thank you Katie! This I have found has been true of me also. It can be the cause of procrastination. Just have to push past it all and do it. Couldn’t have said it better.

I’d love to go to a live event. All the ones I have seen are hosted on Friday-Saturday. I can’t attend then due to religious practices/beliefs. It would be wonderful if some could be planned for Sun-Tues or Wed. Or Wed-Fri. I’ll have to plan one myself maybe, lol.
Peace

Hi Katie
You are so right, to face your fear is the best thing. I know that but there are days when I let the fear controle and I hate it. I am working on it because I know I can do it but the thought that I would make a fool of myself come up and the fear gets bigger. Hate those day.
Thanks for your video it is so nice to hear this from you because when I see you now on video you look so confortible and relaxed and I hope I will be that one day.
Greetings,
Aníka Rós

Hey Katie, You Rock! My 6 year old watched your video with me and said, “She’s so Beautiful!” And you are. What an inspiration. Thanks for your message. I’m sure it will hit home for many of our tribe members. We must move through our fears – on the other side of them, as we look back, it’s like – “what the heck was I afraid of?” Keep doing what you’re doing, the world needs you!

For my 50th birthday I wanted to do something exciting and different. We often have parties, so for this special day, I wanted something exciting and exhilarating.

So I decided to go to an Adventure park where we walked along suspension bridges, swung through the air tarzan-like and was suspended high amongst the trees. Very exciting – the only problem was, I was terrified of heights. I didn’t even like standing close to the rails in a high rise balcony or see anyone else do it.

So I really related to this story. Facing my fear of heights was the most exhilarating, scary thing I have ever done, but I did it, and I can’t describe how I felt at the end of it. Facing my fear and doing it anyway!

Hi Katie,
One is never too old to overcome fears. I’m not uncomfortable speaking, but I am uncomfortable making videos. Once I get past that, I will be doing well.

Cold calling is another fearful thing. Even though I’ve made hundreds of cold calls in my previous career, I still don’t like them.

Thank you for being such a terrific example for us to emulate. I’m thoroughly convinced that if you can do videos, so can I. If you can cold call, so can I. You make things look so easy.

I’m so happy you had such a great time in Las Vegas. The pigeons were a wonderful effect.

It was so nice meeting you face-to-face this past weekend at the “No Excuses” Summit in Vegas! Thank you for being there showing your full support to all attendees all three days. Your content is invaluable and the leadership you exhibit is so refreshing (and particularly inspirational to all female bloggers starting out :)). How great were the birds by the way?! :) As always, I look forward to continuing to follow your posts and thank you for taking the time to weigh-in on my brand new blog.

Thanks Katie for sharing this clip from the No Excuses event.
I remember when I was supposed to present my first webcast. I “rehearsed” my presentation during the day. I was scared and excited at the same time. And when my turn came, I felt as if I’d done it all my life!
Next step is probably shooting my first video!
It’s so important to go out our comfort zone, you feel scared to death, and then you understand that you’ve no reason for feeling this way, especially when you’ve gone out your comfort zone successfully (most of the time, it’s the case!!!) and you realize that you’re still alive and still wanting MORE!!!
Take care!

Great inspiring stuff Katie. I can’t believe how imobilized I am by fear. Fear of failure, fear of success.. After the summit I really had to take a couple steps back and re-evaluate my position and see where I need to go with this. Your breakout session was what did it for me and I am really grateful. Thank you so much for your work and helping me see more clearly what I need to be doing along the path.

Looking forward to hearing and seeing again!

Hey Katie,

Thank you for a truly amazing post… Sometimes even when you’re on the path of personal growth and entrepreneurship you don’t realise that you still have to keep breaking out of your comfort zone and attacking your fears.

I think that is an area I have done quite well in but as you’ve so clearly pointed out when you’ve made it you’ll see it all, and I have yet to make it so I’m gonna keep “following my fears” :)

Thanks very much hun! God bless

Outstanding Katie!

You are absolutely right! We need to face our fears head on. By giving into our fears, we keep ourselves away from situations that make us uncomfortable.

We may feel like we are protecting ourselves, keeping safe; but safety can be a form of imprisonment due to our fears…I’d rather be free!

Thanks for the great video,

It’s almost never fun, but facing our fears and taking action can be exhilarating if we can focus on the growth we are going for instead of identifying with where we are coming from. Courage is a compound emotion. For there to be courage, there must first be fear combined with an energy and presence to move through it.

Hi Katie! =) MeDz here. First of all, I want to congratulate you for a very educational video that you posted w/ a VERY fantastic ending to it. =) Courage is definitely one of the tools that will be required for all dreamers who wants to reach their goals. It is our ultimate weapon against fear itself. The sad thing about that is most people live their lives under fear. But it is alryt. Fear can be conquered. It just takes a small step of courage first then continue to do those small actions of courage. You will be amazed how far you can go thru your life. I wan to thank Katie for inspiring a lot of people with your courage and your determination. Looking forward to be able to meet you one day. =)

Katie – thank you for sharing. Facing the fear is something that a lot of people just can’t do. Mentally, the obstacle of just moving past the intial fear is too much and very overwhelming and the majority just give up. But little do they know that if you just push through with commitment, the fear will subside and success is just around the corner.
