Such a need for external validation is quite common. Stepping out on your own can be scary, which is why we don’t do it more often.
Good news: your personal tribe is waiting for you to show up fully and lead. You don’t have to have the perfect answer, you just have to demonstrate the courage and conviction to say, “Let’s head in this direction,” and people will follow you!
The word “courage” comes from the French word coeur, which means heart. Courage is not about an absence of fear. In fact, without fear, there is no courage. Courage is about feeling, respecting and transcending your fear to do what you know in your heart is right. When you demonstrate courage, you take heart and move forward from a place of compassion with right action.
What is your heart calling you to do? Trust your gut and act upon it. Be the change you wish to see in the world. You ARE the one we’ve been waiting for.
How will you demonstrate your own personal brand of courage today? What would you dare if you could transcend any fears of external judgement or failure?
