Be Bold! It’s Beautiful!

This is article #6 coinciding with the release of my book, Dream B.I.G. in 3D: How to Pursue a Bold, Innovative, God-Inspired Life! Enjoy!


Fear is pervasive throughout our society, seeming to have more influence than hope. Being an entrepreneur I often have to fight against fear in myself, as well as confront it in others in my role as a life and business coach. I wrote a blog a few years ago that discussed practical steps to defeating fear called, Conquering F.E.A.R.

My question for you is, how has fear ever helped you accomplish your goals? How has being scared moved you forward in life? How has always being anxious or apprehensive helped you over a long period of time?

If you can’t answer these questions positively, then why do you allow fear to hang around you? It may visit temporarily, but don’t let it move in permanently!

With all the fearmongering going on around us, I have a strong urge for a flashback to Janet Jackson circa 1986 and ask the question, “What has fear done for you lately?”

Fear is ugly. Bold is beautiful!

It is incredibly inspiring to hear stories of people who accomplish tremendous feats of courage against staggering odds. I am even more energized by ordinary people who choose to engage in extraordinary acts that go against the tide of status quo, negativity, and complacency. These are everyday people who get fed up with “normalcy” and decide to pursue adventurous lives that aren’t just focused on themselves. They sacrifice their personal comfort to positively impact and encourage others. Now that’s bold and beautiful!

Like a beautiful work of art, your B.I.G. dreams require boldness – a strong sense of courage to do something significant in the face of potential defeat, disgrace, or discord. You were created with the ability to not only dream boldly, but to live boldly as well!

Fear is often the biggest deterrent to living your B.I.G. dreams. Your dreams were meant to be lived and lived extremely well. Dreams unlived lead to a life unfulfilled. Dreams well-lived have the potential to transform lives. Yours will be the first!

I received an email newsletter the other day from Vince Bailey in which he asked the question, “What would you NEVER do?” His point was to look at the complete opposite of what you would normally do and you will begin to discover answers for how you can move forward in life with bold confidence.

You see some people wait for once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to happen. Others make once-in-a-lifetime opportunities happen!

People who achieve great things in life have embraced boldness in spite of their fears. You must learn how to do the same if you are going to achieve the significant accomplishments for which you were destined.
