th-1… and it will all be handed to you.

Live it in fear, and you will lose it. All of it.

Lions roar. Cowards get eaten. Which one are you?

Lions step up and own their power; they don’t question the direction they want to move in; they naturally seize the day. Cowards spend their days hiding from themselves and hiding from perceived danger. But danger is always a matter of perception… what you perceive will destroy you, absolutely will.

It helps to know that the coward lives in his head – believing his own mind stories – playing games with himself and living in a perpetual state of fear.  Whereas the lion lives in his instinct – not questioning his ability, or comparing himself to anyone else, he just takes what he wants, when he knows he wants it. He lives in a state of his own power.

Being a coward and living in a perpetual state of fear will destroy you. Fear gets you eaten. Fear stops you from living. Fear stops you from experiencing. Fear stops you from evolving.

And what’s worse is that fear builds on itself – you get what you put out in life, and if what you are putting out is fear, you are creating more and more instances of it around you. That process will never allow for happiness and expansion.

Lions are empowered to live their lives. Cowards are disempowered because they give their power over to a perceived predator who will expedite their timely demise. It is a self-fulfilling prophecy of the mind.

How do you want to live your life? Like a lion or a coward?

Live life fearlessly – just like the lion, listen to your intuition and let it guide you – take any and all risks – don’t ask too many questions, just move and always trust in the process of your life to bring you to where you need to be. It’s instinctual. When you focus your energy on creating the life you want, the sky is the limit and you will have it all.

Don’t feed the “what if’s” of the coward’s mind –  don’t even acknowledge them – shut them down. Indecision is the plight of the coward – it imobilizes him with fear and gets him eaten. Life is too short to give your power over to fear. People who succeed in life are the ones who step into their power. Own your power, it’s yours. Let everyone hear you ROAR!

th-3… takes real COURAGE.

And only a small few have it.

In essence, being vulnerable is the key to your PERSONAL POWER.

Ironic… right?

Our society is obsessed with “being strong” and overcoming fears and inadequacies by overcompensating with ego. But that isn’t real courage. It’s fake. It’s a false sense of identity.

Hiding behind your ego is inauthentic to who you really are. It’s just a wall or facade that you put up for others to see while you cowardly hide behind it, with the intention of hiding all your insecurities, fears and failures.

But here’s the deal… real courage comes from inside – it is an inner strength and it’s dervived from your ability to be authentic to yourself, to be real, to acknowledge your weaknesses and recognizing that through them, your greatest strengths lie.

The ability to admit your faults, your fears, your inadequacies is what makes you truly courageous. In a world of cowards, those who can look in the mirror and own who they are, are the ones who will grow to address those faults, fears and inadequacies. Through this process, real growth and personal transformation occurs. Without this process, we become a slave to the ego and never heal our pain. We continue to mask our pain and push it down until it destroys us.

You don’t become courageous by being a coward and hiding your vulnerabilities from the world. Courage must be earned by fearlessly confronting your demons and being strong enough within yourself to wraggle them to the ground.

It is easy to sit by and pretend you do not have issues and hide them behind a thick, fancy, shiny patina. But really the question is… can you be vulnerable? Can you go deep within yourself and ask yourself who you really are and be able to unearth the negative patterns you have been unconsciously playing out? It’s only through that deep difficult work that one truly earns the title of true courage. It’s the ultimate bravery. Ignorance might be bliss…but it is NEVER courage. Being vulnerable is the only real courage.

th-3… are the SAME PERSON.

They just respond to the same stimuli differently.

Heroes take charge of their lives and cowards let their lives run them over.

Heroes identify their fears and their areas of weakness and work through them each and every day. Cowards ignore their fears. They use their ego to falsely pretend they don’t exist.

Heroes believe in themselves because they are in touch with their vulnerabilities. They understand themselves and they know how to turn those vulnerabilities into real strengths. Cowards are insecure because they deny EVER being vulnerable.

Heroes put themselves in positions where they are challenged to work out their issues and fears. Cowards run from such situations. They feel they are too hard and require too much work and they innately know that they are not ready to do that work, so they hide.

Heroes look for opportunities to grow – NOT just on the outside by “trying to learn new things” but by looking INSIDE themselves and identifying areas of growth. Heroes look in the mirror and if they do not like the reflection staring back at them, they do something about it. Cowards on the other hand, don’t allow themselves to look in the mirror. The pain of not liking what they see is too great, so they pretend it is not there, they cover it up and mask it with overcompensation of ego.

Heroes seek constructive criticism because they want to cover all bases and want to make sure there is nothing they are missing. Cowards fight back when any form of criticism is issued. Surely it could never be theirs.

Heroes are modest and they genuinely make the world a better place both for themselves and for the world at large. Cowards talk a good game and try and make it “seem as if they are making a difference” but in reality, they are just indulging their egos.

Are you a hero or coward? How do you show up in your life? How do you face situations that challenge you? Do your face your fears or do you run and hide? Remember heroes and cowards are the SAME PERSON – they just respond to the same stimuli differently. Who are you?
