I follow a blog written by Chris Guillebeau, The Art of Non-Conformity. Over the past 10 years he has visited every country in the world. His blog is inspiration for achieving personal goals. His posts are usually pretty short, but have a message that is inspiring. Also, for the past six years he has hosted his World Domination Summit where over 1000 people get together to explore how they can live a remarkable life. He has also written several books.

In one of his recent blog posts, he shared a talk given by  Jon Acuff at this past year’s summit. Today’s quote comes from that talk. The whole talk is wonderful, but I really loved this quote mainly because my word for the year is “fearless”. It made me realize, once again, that being brave is not something you can just feel. You also have to take action and do. I’m pretty good at procrastinating things that are out of my comfort zone. I then wake up in the middle of the night with this panic seizing my body. The funny thing is that when I eventually do the thing that I fear, it turns out all right. If you have a 30 minutes, listen to Jon’s talk. You won’t regret it.
