“Reject Mediocrity and Embrace Adventure” – Amber Rae

1 Nov

Are you sick of living an average life? Are you ready to take a chance, make a change? We all have so much potential bottled up inside, maybe we just need someone to spark a fire under our butts so we can let it out!

The Bold Academy- We have one mission: to help you lead the life you are meant to live.

I spent about an hour yesterday reading up the Bold Academy.  Amber Rae founded this company/idea and has created this team of people, which are so wise and cultured; to work together in helping others find their true destiny.

The Bold Academy is a life-accelerator designed to arm you with the habits, values, courage, and community to overcome obstacles and boldly unleash your gifts on the world.

She holds ten day long “camps” where individuals come together and grow, learn, relax and so much more. They include fitness and healthy eating into the equation as well (how perfect). I think I have found my goal for 2014-Go to the Bold Academy.  How cool would that be?

There are so many interesting and intelligent people out there and I just have this desire to know and talk to them all.  I want to soak up as much as I can! When I first started shadowing Noal and David at CFD Noal used to say to me all the time, “Be a sponge Laura-soak in every little detail of what we are doing and saying”. It was like he ignited this awareness inside of me that although I was done with college I was not done learning.  I want to fill this brain with as much knowledge and wisdom as I can. I think having the opportunity to spend 10 days in a situation like the Bold Academy is exactly what I want.

Fear is the single most significant obstacle that holds so many of us back.  Risk is a scary thing. Diving into the unknown is frightening.  But if we stay stuck in this safe zone our whole lives we will never reach our fullest potential.  Humans are magnificent creatures which hold so much possibility.

I have quite a detailed vision of what I would love my life to be like in 3-6 years.  It looks really good on paper/in my head =) but how am I going to kick start that to make it concrete, make it come alive? I honestly don’t know. Today is a start, tomorrow is an opportunity.  I think sometimes we get comfortable where we are (and not always in a bad way.  I feel great about my life, it’s everything I want it to be at this given moment and I am truly lucky to be where I am today. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t more out there for me…) It’s not that we fear the end result but we fear the path from point A to point B and whether or not we can actually get to point B.  I say…

I had to put this in here, it’s perfect. Take your fears, punch them in the face, and attack your life with passion, trust, and an open heart.  Good things are bound to come your way.

    You hit the nail on the head! As the saying goes, “Life beings at the end of your comfort zone.” This is something that I am currently working on =). Great reminder & post, thanks Laura!
