Jan 8, 2019

In this episode of Purpose Lounge, we welcome a new year by facing our fears head-on so that we can do the things we're meant to do, achieve our purpose, and live a life that is authentically ours with no regrets!  Sounds pretty good, right? 

Based on the insightful teachings of the one and only, Mastin Kipp, we learn that FEAR should not be a dreaded "four-letter word."  If you really know where FEAR comes from, or what the purpose of Fear is, you will understand that FEAR is our protector!  It helps us survive!  As Mastin so eloquently describes it, "Fear is not the opposite of Love.  Fear is Love."   

If you don't know Mastin Kipp, allow me to introduce you.  Mastin is a best-selling author, speaker, and Creator of Functional Life Coaching™.  He has been featured on the Emmy Award show, Super Soul Sunday, and recognized as a “thought leader for the next generation” by Oprah Winfrey.

Highlights from this episode, include:

  • The physical and mental toll of allowing FEAR to rule vs. RISE
  • Inspirational quotes from life-hack experts:  Dale Carnegie, Jack Canfield, and Oprah Winfrey
  • Stories told throughout mapping to those who embrace fear and overcome obstacles as a result vs. allowing fear to stop you dead in your tracks leaving you exactly where you are
  • Nervous vs. Excited... (credit: Simon Sinek); how to shift your mindset to cross the finish line to victory, every time!
  • Mastin Kipp's exercise that you can follow to help you identify your list of things that you have been putting off because you're allowing FEAR to stand in your way
  • A concept called "Courageous Action" which Mastin describes as that which we are afraid to do, but that ultimately helps us do the things that we KNOW WE'RE SUPPOSED TO BE DOING

This episode is a wake-up call to anyone who may be stuck in FEAR, with practical ways of thinking about how to FIGHT through the FEAR by simply shifting your mindset.

As we enter into a new year... and have high hopes that "2019 will be our best year yet," I challenge all of the listeners to follow the exercise laid out in this episode and comment on what you hope to achieve / and how you plan to do it, so that we can truly look back at 2019 with NO REGRETS!
