Segment 3 Heart Topic: THiNK Courage
We all have dreams. Whether it is writing a book, getting into real estate investing, making it in the music business, going to college, etc…
Whatever it is, we must have the courage to take action to move forward and bring our dreams into reality. If we let our emotions dictate our actions, our awareness level is often times not high enough. Be proactive versus reactive. Gain the self-confidence required to do whatever it is you want. It takes courage to bring your dreams into the present and always remember: You can do it!

Our question this week comes from the blog post, Zen Habits: What patterns are you unconsciously repeating that are holding you back? Are they keeping you from living your dreams?
Until next week, Peace!
