What's keeping you for making the changes you need to make in your life? The changes you want to make in your life? For a lot of people, there's a fear can play a huge factor. Whether it's the fear of change, fear of the unknown or the fear of failure, as lawyers we are a particularly risk averse bunch so fear often shows up when we start to consider making big changes in our lives. We procrastinate by researching, preparing and waiting until we feel "ready" or "brave enough". On today's show, Lauree Ostrofsky (my coach!) talks about what it takes to be scared and do it anyway, why it's important and how it can be the secret to living a happy life.  

What you'll learn:
* What it means to be scared and do it anyway
* Being empowered around fear
* Why we need to move away from the idea of fearlessness
* The key to getting closer to doing that big scary thing
* How to figure out the next step when there's no clear path forward 
* The benefits of working in your gifts
