"Life is a DARING ADVENTURE or nothing." ~ Helen Keller.
Can you imagine what it would be like to live an entire year embracing the uncomfortable?
That is exactly what Josh Barad decided to do. He describes how his reality was completely shaken, moving him from CONFUSION to CLARITY. What he had believed to be important in life no longer mattered, and he was filled with a deep sense of appreciation and gratitude.
He explains to his readers how he pressed forward and discovered the impossible (backed up with a long list of excuses) was possible. Josh’s suggestions for those hungry to live a life of meaning and purpose are:
♦ You’ll never have everything figured out – Stop allowing your EXCUSES, STOP YOU from going after what you want.
♦ IT ONLY TAKES ONE SECOND TO BE COURAGEOUS – One second to say jump, to leave, to smile, to say hello, to give notice, to say yes – to be courageous.
♦ BEFRIEND UNCERTAINTY – Whether you’re ready for it or not, the unpredictable will show up anyway. When you accept uncertainty you will begin to experience a greater sense of meaning and fulfillment in your life.
♦ If it makes you feel safely uncomfortable it may be the best thing for you. Each adventure will not only contribute to rapid PERSONAL GROWTH, but will also increase your threshold for dealing with unsettling feelings.
♦ Replace “What will they think of me? With WHATS REALLY IMPORTANT TO ME?” When you find yourself safely immersed within an uncomfortable situation, try sitting with it. Before you know it, the related negative feelings will disappear.
