Inspiration, Fear and The Coming Year
This video about Greg Long, a big wave surfer, caught my attention recently. It’s about fear, resilience, listening to your inner wisdom and honoring what is true for you in each moment. I found it inspiring and validating; it’s good to know I’m not the only one dealing with fear around those things I love most (work, money, love, the list goes on).

Here at the beginning of 2015, I encourage you to do a bit of soul searching, and it doesn’t have to take that long. Give yourself the gift of 20 minutes and go on Greg’s journey, then ask yourself the questions below. Spend 30 minutes on this, 45 minutes tops, and see what you’d like to create for yourself in the new year using fear and your intuition as guides. Chances are you’re braver than you think.
What scares you?
When you feel fear, do you push past it? Sometimes even when you shouldn’t?
If you let fear stop you, are you letting yourself down? (only you know the truth about what the fear is telling you / asking of you)
If you turned around and faced your fear, what might happen?
Who do you choose to be in the face of fear?
What will you do in 2015 to use your fear as a guide and teacher?
Are you willing to get started on this now?
