We closed on our house 2 weeks ago.
And that morning I was clinging to our house like a treehugger clings to trees.
How could I not?
It was our home for the last 12 years.
Chad and I fell in love in that house. We even got married there.
We shared our home with pets & people. Some stayed on as lodgers for several years.
Our house was often called Hotel Erika & Chad!
So as I was getting myself all spiffied up for the closing – I was a hot mess.
Tears poured down my face as my new reality sunk in.
I was officially saying goodbye to our home. And moving on to the next chapter in our lives.
(What exactly that is? We’re not sure yet. Stay tuned … )
As I put on my big girl boots—black suede over the knee stilettos—cleaned up my smeared mascara, dabbed on some fresh lipgloss, I remembered a formula I share with my clients whenever they need to face their fears.
This formula is so powerful it INSTANTLY shifted my energy from feeling blue to feeling BOSS.
Oh, you should know that I snagged this formula from the family-friendly movie, We Bought A Zoo …
Remember the part where Matt Damon’s son is bummed because he desperately wants to tell his crush he loves her BUT he doesn’t want to make a fool out of himself?
Matt’s character has the best response …
‘Sometimes all you need is 20 seconds of insane courage. Just literally 20 seconds of embarrassing bravery.
And I promise you – something will come of it.’
Read those words over and over and over again until they sink in.
And then apply THE INSANE COURAGE FORMULA whenever you need to face your fears.
20 SECONDS + INSANE COURAGE = YOUR PRIZE
And the best part? When you use the INSANE COURAGE FORMULA you’ll not only get what you want, there’s an unexpected bonus.
You’ll become a BOSS.
Because when it comes to embracing embarrassing bravery, 99% of the population will hide from the opportunity.
Be bold. Be brave. Be insane.
You only need 20 seconds.
