I watched my 3rd grade son and one of his girl friends bite into a dirty carrot freshly plucked from the earth of an organic farm. "Yum!" they said, faces covered with mud! Sweetness is for those who who are willing to get dirty! Do you ever want to just roll around in the mud? I do.

We never feel quite ready to make big jumps in life. In order to succeed you must simply use courage.

Successful people feel blessed. They surrender to a force that's good...and greater than them.

Riches start before we can see them...through the COURAGE to show enthusiasm for life.

I've received the honorary title "Fearless." You can, too. All you do is:

  • Have courage to go on when you think you can't.
  • Believe even when others think you're dreaming.
  • Put yourself in situations that scare you if they'll help you grow.

What's your biggest fear right now? Whether your fear comes true or not, the choice is still yours.

Happy or bitter?

My Vine followers either share and like my work, send me letters of heartfelt praise and appreciation, or make hateful and vulgar remarks.

People say I'm brave to expose myself to put-downs. But diamonds are created under pressure. When you dare not to care what anyone says about you, you inevitably offend those who aren't doing the same.

In what area of your life will you chose courage over fear?
