Boldness has power, genius and magic in it. Begin it now!
These famous words by Johann van Goethe, rung in my ear as I dove head first into the frigid Atlantic Ocean for my 42nd birthday Sunday. While the icey water stung my flesh and shocked my body I felt alive, vital and empowered!
My birthday polar plunge was a symbolic start to a personal challenge this year; be bold, dig deep and take inspired action!
Take away: When it comes to stepping up to a new challenge or an old obstacle this year, I invite you to lean in and take inspired action. When you do people, events and resources you never dreamed of will come your way.
What’s the point of being alive if we don’t at least try to do something remarkable? Be bold, dig deep and take the plunge!

Coach E here:
For years I took myself way too seriously and as a result missed out on a lot of freedom, adventure, laughter and joy.
Take away: Enlighten up! Be quick to laugh at yourself or a situation today. Dwell in possibilities not difficulties. Have the courage to be seen, heard and felt in all of your perfect imperfection.
Remember when you smile at the world the world smiles back!
Coach E here:
Food is perhaps the most abused anxiety drug and exercise is perhaps the most underutilized antidepressant.
Take away: If you need a boost get moving. Emotion is created by motion. As little as two minutes of movement can change your biochemistry and can give your day a hit of awesome!
Get after it!
How did you get your hit of awesome today? Post below and let us know!
The effect you have on other people is the most valuable currency there is. At the very end, all that you’ve accomplished and accumulated will fade away. What will remain are the moments of honest, brave and intimate connection that will live in the hearts of others forever.
Take away: Be somebody that makes other people around you feel like somebody. Shine your light freely on as many people as you can today.
