How to crush fear forever!
 
Are you sick and tired of fear running your life or keeping you from big dreams?
Good news, the thing that is keeping fear in place (your smallness voice) can be crushed.
The two biggest things that achieve dreams are your greatness and  your courage. However, they are the hardest to master because our smallness voice and our fearful feelings are often in the way.
 
Every year I push myself harder and harder to grow my courage and grow my greatness because THAT is what it takes to achieve my biggest dreams. I don’t care how many great systems you have in place, or what great help you have or even what fabulous marketing you have. Those don’t matter if you are allowing your smallness voice and your fearful feelings get in the way.
I will not succumb to living in smallness, I did that for 27 years. No one told me I had greatness, no one told me we were all born with a greatness voice and a smallness voice. But I am here to tell you that YOU have a greatness voice and you were born with it. It’s just buried under your smallness voice (yes you have tons of it like all of us) that keeps you scared and small. Even my clients who have huge, juicy lives or very successful businesses are playing small compared to the dreams they have because of their smallness voice. What would your life look like if you never listened to your smallness EVER again? Would you get your ambition and grit back? What if you could crush your smallness voice so that it never stopped you from a dream or goal again? What if you could master your greatness mindset and turned down your smallness voice every time you heard it?
 
See, if an unemployed man can become a million dollar CEO, and a California Mom can become a Ballroom Dancing national champion, and a girl from a dysfunctional home became a best selling author, and a small company can become a national franchise, and a mom of 4 can build a million dollar company helping other moms, all with the help of mastering their greatness, THEN you can achieve your greatness mindset too. Every great dream has a great mindset behind it, do you have a greatness mindset?
I recently shot an episode for The List on ABC about growing your courage and I got in an elevator with two Boa Constrictor snakes. THAT grew my courage! BOY was I scared. But when you do things that scare you it will grow your courage!! I promise!! With that newly heightened courage you can take another BOLD step towards your dreams. With that heightened courage you can get your gifts and brilliance out in the world. With that heightened courage you can achieve anything you want. What can you do THIS week that really scares you so that you can grow your courage? One thing that scared me was finishing my book and getting it published – it is scary to write a book! I had many smallness attacks during that process, but luckily I was writing on the subject of smallness vs. greatness and knew how to crush my smallness so it didn’t stop me.
But what about all those feelings of being scared? We are human beings, not human doings. YES our feelings are an important part of being human, but feelings also can be influenced by your smallness voice and other peoples negative judgments. If that’s the case, why do we allow our feelings to dictate our thoughts and actions when it comes to our dreams? We have to have discipline around our feelings or we get tangled up in them, especially the negative ones. The key is to honor our feelings, however we also need to have discipline around them (i.e. HAVE your feelings, don’t BECOME your feelings).  See when we start to master our greatness mindset, along with growing our courage along with disciplining our feelings we start to achieve our bigggggggest dreams. WHY? Because our smallness and our scared feelings aren’t running the show any more.We learn to crush that smallness voice every day so we can achieve those amazing dreams.
 
It is time that we stop believing our smallness voice and stop allowing our scared feelings to dictate our actions – hence dictate our dreams. If you are scared, have courage to do it anyway. It takes your willingness to RELEASE the need for smallness and fear, and fully step into your greatness. Start today. #crushsmallness #greatnessonly
SAME smallness = SAME business and SAME life.
