How To Write Your Way To Brave
Show Notes

"Bravery is about moving through our expansion and growth pains to tap into what's on the other side."

Often the thing in the way is our thoughts, beliefs, and assumptions about who we are and who we can be. We can use our journal to elevate our courage, confidence, and bravery by writing our way to brave.

In turn, the impossible can feel just a bit more possible and our dreams can become a reality.

In this episode we explore: 

  • What does it mean to be brave? 
  • The relationship between fear and the life we want. 
  • The difference between real and perceived fears. 
  • How our childhood experiences can keep us playing small. 
  • Exposing the multitude of things that hold us back. 

"Fear is a compass and an invitation to grow into life."

  • Why stay with discomfort instead of going for our dreams. 
  • The potent power of elevating your noticing skills by becoming the witness.
  • Why it's powerful to slow things down. 
  • Why our saboteurs are actually protecting us.
  • And more...

I’m my own worst enemy. 

I’m usually the one who’s most in the way! 

My relationship with fear is what I’m always working at… rooting out the things that hold me back and then transmuting them with journaling. 

I invite you to try this for yourself - and see if you can write yourself BRAVE.


  • If you could turn your braveness up by 50% what would change in your life? 
  • What would you suddenly have the courage to be or do? 
  • What would be the result of that? 
  • What if you turned up your braveness by 75% or even 100%... then what? 
  • Are you ready to turn that dial? 
  • If so, write down up to FIVE things that you could do over the next week to experience your BRAVE at a higher level.
