“The Cave You Fear To Enter Holds The Treasure You Seek”

Hey it’s hump day.

Are you kicking A#% and taking names this week?

I took home a really good lesson from my conference in Toronto on the weekend.

Mark Fisher (owner of MFF) quoted the late Joseph Campbell in his talk:

“The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek”

What’s your biggest fear/challenge right now?

The one challenge you know would change your life for the better – if only you could tackle it head on?

We all have challenges to overcome to become a better version of ourselves. I’ve been very guilty of staying in my comfort zone in a lot of areas.

But the biggest risk you can take? Staying exactly where you are.

Be strong and meet your challenges head on.

If not, you can bet not doing so will eat away at your very being. Listen to your intuition. Your emotions lead the way. If you feel like this is your path, take it!

Let’s say you’ve got a bit (or a lot) of weight to lose. You know getting healthy and in shape will change your life. Hell, it might save your life.

And, yet, you can’t muster the courage to start, right?

SO MANY people stay where they are until, finally, the pain of staying the same overwhelms the pain of change.

But those who make an impact in the world decide to face their fears square on before they get a wake up call. They are the ones who get “lucky” in life because they went for it.

Punch fear in the face!

P.S. Today, pick ONE thing you’ve been putting off forever and start working on it. Even a small step forward compounds. Stop waiting for the “right time” – it isn’t coming.
