In a recent article, I shared some information about my business that I was a little nervous about sharing. I laid out some facts and also some personal feelings that very few people would share in such a public way about their business.
And the response was…surprisingly awesome! Email after email dropped into my inbox thanking me for my thoughts, my honesty, and my vulnerability. One colleague in my industry even went so far as to say that I was an inspiration!
And to think, I was a bit nervous about showing my softer side! HA! That article is now on it’s way to becoming one of the most popular articles I’ve written in a long time.
Because I put myself out there.
Because I acted with FEARLESSNESS.
The reason behind the action:
Do you know why I acted that way? Why I let myself be vulnerable? Why I shared some sensitive stuff like that?
Because FEARLESSNESS is my mantra for 2012. No kidding. Back in January, we launched our Step Back/Spark Forward Visioning Event. Part of that program involves developing a theme or a mantra for the year — a simple, memorable reminder of your single most powerful success factor.
In order to achieve what I wanted to achieve this year, I knew I needed to be willing to put myself out there in ways I never had before. I would have to meet more powerful people. I would have to step way out of my comfort zone. And I would have to do it often.
In other words, I’d have to exercise fearlessness on a regular basis.
And I have done just that…for the most part. I still occasionally think I’m going to wet my pants in certain situations, but then I remember my mantra and I keep on keepin’ on.
When was the last time you put yourself out there?
When was the last time you allowed yourself to be vulnerable? To be uncomfortable? To almost wet your pants?
I highly recommend it. You never know what will happen. Oh, you THINK you know, which is why you DON’T do it. But if you give it a try, more often than not you will be pleasantly — even shockingly — surprised at the result.
How would you like to reach your goals faster and more powerfully than you’ve ever been able to before?
Developing a mantra is a good start. However a mantra isn’t much good if it doesn’t have a solid reason for existence. Part of the reason my mantra is so empowering for me is that I used an entire process, a solid framework, to identify exactly what I need to make my goals a reality. That process was our Step Back/Spark Forward Visioning Event back in January.
After selling out both our January event and then another identical session in July, we realized that this workshop was special. And after hearing the amazing results the participants were experiencing, we knew we had to figure out a way to get the program into the hearts, minds, and hands of more people. And how do you spread your ideas to the most people possible? The internet!
Introducing The Step Back/Spark Forward Online Visioning Experience
We took every idea, every tool, and every activity from the live event and recorded it on video and put it in a very interactive, easy-to-use format that you can access on almost any computer or mobile device.
If you would like to achieve more, do more, produce more, and be more fulfilled in your work and in your life, you really must check out this program!
The program itself contains more than 18 inspirational and instructional videos, a downloadable participant journal, and many extras.
After months of production and testing, we are introducing this to the public for the first time today.
There is so much more to discover about this program, so rather than make this newsletter any longer, I’ll just invite you to explore the full details on our website.
P.S. I will tell you that if you sign up today there are over $600 worth of extra bonuses:

By the way, if you’ve read this far, creating this program and making it public are pure acts of fearlessness for me. Think about it, NOBODY likes to see themselves on video. 😉
