In the last podcast, I suggested giving up a Fear Life, and moving to a Fierce Life. That was not a life devoid of fear, but one that chose a path in spite of fear. It is the courageous life, lived with clarity and purpose, and with intensity.
Sometimes, how we think about ourselves, our personal beliefs, hold us back. We get caught up in “I’m not. . .” and “I can’t. . . .”
When I started running, I never knew when I could start calling myself a “runner.” When I decided to run? After my first run? After my first race? After running for a week, a month, a year?
Sometimes, it is the difference between process and product. For example, the “product” that many people want are 6-pack abs. They forget about the process of daily healthy choices. They get stuck on the end result, not the path to get there.
This is true with living a fierce life. That life is built one choice, one step, one day, at a time.
To be honest, when I was preparing for the last few podcasts, I found myself saying, “I don’t live a fierce life — I’m not fierce.” I let my old belief system establish whether I am that person or not. Do I always live fiercely? No. But can I choose to live MORE fiercely? Absolutely!
And a fierce life is built one choice, one decision, one action at a time. Slowly, you become FIERCE.
