Do it Afraid

Do It Afraid

At the beginning of the year, I had the opportunity to share as one of four guest speakers for a Tele-Event entitled “New Year New You 2014.” My topic was about how to live in and on purpose.  As I prepared for the call, I asked God what He would have me to share with the women on the call and He gave me three points, the first of which was DO IT AFRAID.  I will share the other two in the weeks to come.

I received such awesome feedback that I figured I would share with you in more detail what I shared on the call to help you jumpstart 2014 so you can start living in and on purpose.

When we talk about doing it afraid, it means feel the fear and do it anyway.  So many times we let fear be the very thing that keeps us from the greatness that is waiting for us.  I am here to tell you to STOP IT!  It is time for you to start doing it afraid.

DO NOT let fear be the only factor that determines your decisions.  Do not let fear be the deciding factor for how you pursue purpose.  Remember that What You Feed Expands.  So my question to you is what are you feeding?  Your faith? Or your fear?

If you are feeding your fear, it will continue to expand, but if you are feeding your faith, then that is what will expand.  I believe that we have to get to a place where we intentionally minimize those things that would cause our fear to grow even if that means doing it afraid.  The more you press through fear in to faith and action, the less of an impact it has on you.

There is an infographic I’ve seen numerous times that says “the phrase ‘DO NOT BE AFRAID’ is written in the bible 365 times. That’s a daily reminder from God to live everyday being fearless.”


If Do Not Be Afraid is listed in the bible 365 times, then that is a hint that maybe, just maybe, you need to start focusing less on your fears and more on what God instructs you to do and that is to NOT BE AFRAID.  Now let’s be realistic here, even I get afraid.  Shoot we all get afraid.  I get nervous.  I over think things.  I even sometimes try to talk myself out of doing certain things until I hear that still small voice tell me DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT… JUST DO IT. That’s when in spite of my fears, my insecurities, my doubts or whatever else I may be feeling or thinking, I do what I’ve been instructed to do.

Is it always easy to do it afraid? NO.  Will you second guess yourself, while doing it afraid?  YES. But will it be worth it? ABSOLUTELY!  Doing what you know in your heart of hearts to do isn’t always easy.  It’s takes guts, it takes passion and it takes drive.  If you spend time feeding your faith, it makes the journey just a little bit easier.  In addition to feeding your faith, you also need to get moving.  Taking massive action minimizes the level of fear you feel as you continue to keep moving.  This is why I say you have to do it afraid.  To DO is a verb, which means you need to be in action, doing something.  

The reason your fear has been so rampant in your mind and your life is because you aren’t doing anything or the things you are doing are feeding your fears instead of your faith.  Just in case you didn’t know FAITH is also a verb and it only works when you work it.  Are you willing to work your faith?  Are you willing to put your faith into action?  Are you willing to take massive action in the direction of your dreams, goals, aspirations and purpose?

I sure hope so.

Isn’t it time you starting doing it afraid?

I say YES…

So get moving!


Choose to live in and on purpose…

FREE Monthly Motivational Call Tonight at 8pm!

Happy April 4!!!

I am just elated because on this evening I will host the first of my monthly motivational coaching calls.  Over the last few months I have had a number of conversations with individuals who know they have greatness inside of them but seem to be stuck in a paralyzed state of FEAR.  While praying about the direction God wanted me to take to best serve you, I realized that some people just need a little push, a little umph… a little bit of mojo or even a swift kick in the butt!

Well here is your answer… it’s time out for letting FEAR run rampant in our lives and keep us from living God’s Best.  If you know you need to take more than just safe steps into greatness, this call is for you.  It’s time for massive action steps into your purpose and destiny!

Over the past few months, I’ve been in prayer about how best to serve you and those who God has assigned to me. I know that many of you struggle with launching out and pursuing God’s best for you. So to help you live God’s best life I will be hosting a 30 minute coaching call EVERY MONTH to help jump-start you into purpose. Sometimes that’s all we need is a little push, right? It is my desire that this will be the little push needed to start you on your journey to living life IN and ON PURPOSE.  The best part of this is that it’s FREE and it’s only 30 minutes.  Believe me you… I know how important your time is and I know that you sometimes need something quick, concise, and to the point and that’s the purpose of these calls.

Therefore on the first Thursday of each month there will be a new topic and strategic tips for immediate implementation EACH month to help you break the mold, challenge the status quo and live life IN & ON purpose.

For April, we will be dealing with a topic that almost everyone has at some point dealt with or is still dealing with. There isn’t a week that goes by where I don’t meet people who are caught in a very frustrating and deadly trap.

They invest a lot of time and energy thinking ‘how great or different things would be if I (fill in the blank).’ Now I’m not talking about hoping and wishing the grass was greener on the other side. I am referring to people who KNOW they are supposed to be doing something great but CAN’T get started or just WON’T get started.

Many times they take one or two or even three steps but these are safe steps. However when it comes to taking massive action, they FREEZE.

Why you might ask???

Because of one word…. FEAR!

That’s right.

When asked ‘what are you afraid of’ or ‘what’s holding you back’, many will say “I don’t know.”

Over the years I’ve met so many people, young and old, who just won’t move forward because of this one BIG LITTLE word. They are afraid of what others will say, think or do in response to a decision they need to make. They are afraid of the unknown. They are afraid of failing and even succeeding.

YES!!!! Some people are even afraid of success. These people shrink into the background and dim their light so that others won’t try to dim it for them. OR because they’re afraid their ‘light’ won’t be accepted.

There are so many reasons people are afraid but on tonight, Thursday April 4 at 8pm, I want you to join me for a 30 minute POWER PACKED Coaching Call entitled

‘FearFULL to FearLESS: 3 ways to kick FEAR to the curb’.

Monthly Coaching Call

This will be the first of our monthly motivational calls where we will dig deep into a topic that as I stated many of you either struggle to overcome or have asked me about on numerous occasions.

Using practical and faith-based principles, on this call, you will learn how deal with fear and move forward into purpose.

Did I mention the call is FREE!! — Yes FREE!!!

It’s time to turn things around and break the mold. It’s YOUR time to start taking massive action so you can start living life IN and ON Purpose!

Join me for this FREE, high-value coaching call where I’ll share with you the 3 simple but powerful secrets to overcoming and moving through your fear!
