A few things people are saying about THE COURAGE HABIT…

“THE COURAGE HABIT combines the latest research into what creates genuine change with the spiritual view that fear is a gateway to fearlessness. Drawing on her experience coaching clients, personal stories, doable (non-silly) exercises, and her ever-present warmth, this book teaches you the four key habits to face what is holding you back and live your most courageous life.” Susan Piver, author of "Start Here Now: An Open-Hearted Guide to the Path and Practice of Meditation"

“If there’s anything I’ve learned and taken to heart in the last few years, it’s that we only have one life to live and we could all stand to spend more time on what makes us happy and less time feeling like we’re about to implode from anxiety, shame, guilt, and fear. THE COURAGE HABIT is a great reminder that YOU control your destiny and YOU have the power to make changes from the inside out—to have the life you want, need, and deserve.” Sarah Knight, New York Times bestselling author of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck and Get Your Sh*t Together

“THE COURAGE HABIT is a definitive guide to your new understanding of fear and courage and what they really are, and how they can both be reshaped to support the life you actually want to live. THE COURAGE HABIT will help you to stop trying to be “fearless,” and start creating something deeper and richer for your life: living from a place of courage. And what that will produce for your life is truly revelatory.” SARKauthor, artist, inspirationalistPlanetSARK.com

What courage really looks like

I was having a conversation with Andrea Owen about courage when I said, “I don’t think that I’m courageous because I do these big, grandiose things with my life. On paper, my life is pretty ordinary--husband, house, kid, career, and always plenty of laundry to do.”...

being put together

You run a business AND you have a baby--how in the world do you do it? You’ve got your shit together. I can’t believe how much you can get done. These are the things that people say to me. They are not totally untrue statements--more like top-layer statements that...

how to be happy

When you ask people to get right down to it, they want to be...happy. Consider anything that you do, even those things that are difficult: get up early in the morning for a run; work on your marriage; start a meditation practice. Why are you doing it? Because you want...

the 2014 recap: what did you learn this year?

First, my best moment. The moment that was everything: meeting Anika Jane. June 2, 2014. And now on to the lessons: 1. Forget about “being realistic.” This is an oldie, but goodie. I’ve lost count of how many times someone has told me to “be realistic” about something...
