2. Dare yourself to spend time alone

A date alone with your thoughts, perhaps doing something mindless to recharge, is often one of the things that slips through the cracks of a busy life.

If you get to know yourself better, you up the energy on every other relationship in your life.

4. Dare yourself to be present

Every time you focus on yesterday or overthink tomorrow, you rob yourself of today. Start with a weekend and challenge yourself to stay in the moment for all 48 hours.

Keep your energy and your actions positioned on what you can do right now. What shifts?

5. Dare to ask for something you want

5. Dare to ask for something you want

Without even realizing it, you may be asking for things that you do not want to happen rather than those that you do.

6. Dare yourself to get one solid goal accomplished

6. Dare yourself to get one solid goal accomplished

Then another. Instead of focusing on all of your goals and dreams, prioritize one or two important ones.

Resist the need to overload yourself with other shiny objects and work strategically to accomplish what you envisioned.

Once complete, move on to the next one. Can’t complete as envisioned? Then tweak and recalibrate your goal to move forward.

7. Dare to be more accepting

7. Dare to be more accepting

The moment you stop tolerating is the moment you begin accepting. Acceptance requires you to let go of judgement and to authentically be okay with situations as they unfold, minus preset agendas and expectations.

Acceptance frees your mind and elevates your energy level to expand upon what is possible.

8. Dare to forgive

8. Dare to forgive

Forgiving someone does not mean that you forgot what happened or that you even agree with it.

What it does mean is that you are willing to let go of that imperfect moment for the good of the overall relationship. Forgiveness frees your mind and your heart for greater expansion and growth.

10. Dare to hold a mirror up

10. Dare to hold a mirror up

Fact check your life daily. See your reflection, engage your senses and get in the habit of separating negative chatter from nurturing conversations, real from imagined and limitations from possibilities.

It is only in consistently meeting yourself that you can understand to expand, and grow to know. It is only when you fully reveal yourself that you are organically present and with that awareness comes self-leadership and a legacy lived.

Choosing the same rituals over and over again in relationships will, over time, begin to feel ill-fitted. That is because as you change and the world changes, the rules, boundaries, and traditions that define what you do and how you do it have to change as well. Seek the alignment between the moment and who you are in it. It is at that intersection that boundaries get re-written.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
