Courageous New Year 2018!
More Than "Happiness",
May The New Year Bring You Closer To Your Truth
We all want to be happy, and there's nothing wrong with that. But pursuing happiness directly does not work. For many of us, before happiness, we need courage to take the steps that take us closer to knowing ourselves, our truth; what we really are.
Do you want to see progress in your life? Then, most likely this applies: "what got you here won't get you there". This trek of the road will require more care, more surrender, more faith, more courage.
In this video I discuss how courage goes at the front of every movement of growth in our lives. If we don't have courage, we stagnate.
We need a kind of courage for every day responsibilities, and when we are talking about steps in our lives that will produce real change, we need to have serious courage.
Courage comes first, happiness follows.
Being "happy enough", or "content" can be code for "totally stagnated and have given up".

3 Key Points from the video:
o A sense of "happiness", if it becomes passive and lifeless, is an impairment for our growth. You want to experience the discontent that comes from your inner being speaking to you. These senses of perception need sharpening.
o More than happiness we need to have more truth about ourselves, and we will not face that unless we have courage to do it. Self-knowledge is for the brave and honest.
o Is this year different for you too? Is this year demanding more from you than ever? You are not alone; many feel that the bar is higher than ever; again, "what got us here will not get us there".
