Have you ever done something that was scary, but also exhilarating? Forced you to let down your defenses and barriers? Put you at personal risk, tested your courage and ability to truly ‘walk your talk’?
If you have, then you understand how personally fulfilling and life-changing it can be. And if you have not, I highly recommend that you put yourself out there and give it go. The experience can take many different forms and happen through different kinds of experiences – the latest one for me has been to write a book.
It is finished and about to be published. I am terrified, excited and thrilled all at the same time.
How do you challenge yourself to be and to become your best self – and to ‘walk your talk’? It’s a life long journey and we do not always succeed, but it’s about the doing of it – and the learning from it – that matters. Through the experience of writing this book, I’ve learned a great deal more about myself and others than I could have imagined. I am grateful for the new knowledge, the mistakes, the joys and the lessons and am taking them forward into every day and with every step. What are you doing to challenge yourself and ‘walk your talk’? Find what works for you and give it a go. The rewards are priceless.
