Courage is not about being fearless, it’s about letting fear transform you so you come into right relationship with uncertainty, make peace with impermananence and wake up to who you really are. ~Dr. Lissa Rankin

Too often we are afraid to slow down because of what we would experience in unhurried and unguarded moments. Yet when we take time to pause, we see and feel what we miss in our normal mode of “always being in motion.”

Experiencing Iceland via Wild Wisdom Journeys allowed a client to see and feel what she was missing in her fast forward pursuits. Pausing to look at this photo of the Sun Voyager and other images of Iceland, she became more present. During this virtual travel experience she felt herself shift into a state of “Awe.”

Different perspectives and deeper understandings opened the door to her becoming unstuck in persistent behaviors that don’t sereve or honor who she is. This release freed her to easily identify next steps. As we began to unpack the revelations of her journey, she started to reclaim her Inner Peace.

Her epipanies and transformational insights unearthed buried aspirations that once awakened clarified her best next steps. And in her words, she is now on a path to her “Personal AWE.”

The photo below reflects what experiencing “Personal AWE” looked like on my Wild Wisdom Journeys in Iceland—source of the transformational virtual travel adventure I’ve created to facilitate simple elegant solutions for leaders, like the client who gave me permission to share here the significance of her virtual Wild Wisdom Journeys experience.

Embody Goodness

As a leader, it's easy to forget the power in letting go of the familiar. Because letting go takes Courage. Yet in the end we only regreat the chances that we didn't take. So in what way could you surrender to a positive change in your leadership, business or life by simply letting go?

Trust Not Knowing

What Stops You

That indecision which haunts you. The not knowing that worries you. The second guessing that stops you. Ease away from that doubt and fear. Because... it's time now to be kind and compassionate with yourself. Even though you don't know yet what you think you need to know to move forward, pause that thought. Instead, consciously choose to take 1 next step. Allow that next step to reveal the one that follows it. Step-by- step be brave enough to voyage beyond your known frontiers to where unknown yet self-fulfilling transformation patiently awaits your arrival. Courage comes from the heart. So let your heart lead you.

Your Courage Companions

Never underestimate the power of your curiosity and wonder.

They help you regain a natural sense of yourself - calming and centering you within to step into undiscovered territory. Emboldened, you begin to find a way forward, navigating volatile, unpredictable, chaotic and ambiguous challenges.

The Power of Doubt

Beyond Belief

What if...

What we believe isn't true?

And, the questions we ask are the wrong questions?

When Casey Gerald's firmly held belief failed him, he searched for something to believe in — in business, in government, in philanthropy. Yet he found only false hopes. In this compelling talk, Gerald shares how he witnessed every facet of the American Dream and learned how essential it is to question our beliefs and have enough courage to embrace uncertainty.

Gerald says, “We hardly realize the human price we pay when we fail to question one brick because we fear it might shake our whole foundation.”
