I don’t believe in resolutions. I do believe in symbolically starting each New Year with a healthy mental and physical AHHHH HAAAA daring inspirational jump.
Why don’t I believe in resolutions?
We usually make them too big; too scary; too overwhelming and difficult. And so…well, you know what happens to resolutions.
I do believe in facing your fears, but I believe in taking them on with risks large and small; risks fun and silly, playful and daring and motivational.
I like to do them in “one offs”. One. One thing different. Bite size FIRSTS, because one First generally leads to another naturally and organically and then you start positively changing your days. I could go on, and I will if you meet me at any one of these events in January.
Here are 3 different “one-offs” that will leave you exhilarated and excited to keep going in 2016 to create the life you want.
1) Friday, January 1
The Polar Bear Plunge: Atlantic City Resorts Casino Boardwalk, 12pm benefiting MS and Living Beyond Breast Cancer
Okay, this is a big dare but don’t be scared. I’ll hold your hand and I promise you’ll feel like nothing can stop you in 2016 after you plunge. Be courageous and transfer the courage you gain to other parts of your life. Sign up here or just show up.
2) Sunday, January 17th
It’s YOUR Year, Lose the Fear and Find your JOY Workshop/Workout. Limit 50 people Ticket: $85.00 Includes signed I Dare Me book. AFC Bala Cynwyd, 9am-12pm
I can’t wait for this workshop. I’m joining with two of the most inspirational people I know to help you get pumped and rediscover the daring person you are and ready to take the reigns of your life to create the change you want. You’ll leave with a workout (for all fitness levels) that will give you the confidence you need to make 2016 a turning point year.
3) Thursday, January 28th
Temple University’s first annual Women’s Empowerment Workshop, Temple University Center City 1515 Market Street, Philadelphia. 9am-4:30 pm.
A full day of inspiration with women who will give you strategies and skills to grow and reboot your best self in 2016. $125.00. First 25 get a free I Dare Me signed book. I’ll kick the morning off to get this day rolling. Sign up here:
So this is not a resolution. This is a commitment to just one or two new things to try. Sometimes it helps to get at least one daring friend to come with you; a partner so you can cheer each other on. Don’t let your inner fear voice talk you out of it. Jump. You can do this. Jump with me into this sweet 16 year.
May the FIRSTS be with you,
