Have you ever felt so fearful of doing something, that you just couldn’t move, or think? I find myself in that paralyzing situation more often than I’d like to be. I hate it because that unrelenting fear stops me from “LY-N”, Living My Nirvana! And, I deserve, as a child of God, to be doing exactly that, Living My Nirvana, my absolute best life. If I know that fear does that to me, keeps me locked up, away from my true destiny, my best life, then why do I allow it? I ask myself that very question. Sometimes, I can roar like a lion and bulldoze my way past that cowering fear, but then again, there are those times when I feel like I absolutely CANNOT! I began to accept that “this is just me.” I told myself, “I don’t really have that thing, that thing inside me to push me out of the paralyzing fear. God didn’t make me like that.” So, what do I do? I wait for the fear to subside. Stupid isn’t? When those moments would come over me, when I’d feel trapped in a straight-jacket, I’d look for examples of courage, and I’d sometimes find them, but lots of times, I didn’t. So, I’d just wait. By the time the fear had passed, the situation causing the fear was gone, and so was the opportunity it tried to give to me.
When President Trump came onto the national scene, I couldn’t decide if I loved him or hated him. He said some pretty crazy things, and at first I couldn’t believe that someone was that nuts to respond in the way he did before millions of people. Didn’t he know he’d get criticized? Didn’t he realize he’d polarize so many millions of people? Didn’t he wonder if everything he said would cause his life to be put in danger? Didn’t he give a damn? The answer to those questions, in my opinion, is no. He didn’t. He doesn’t. He never will.
Whether you love him or you hate him, you’ve got to admit to some degree, he’s got LION-like courage, LY-N courage. He’s living his life, believing in what he believes, doing what he wants to do, saying what he wants to say, going where he wants to go, and that’s just it! We should all be so lucky! Then again, we can be so lucky. All we have to do is bulldoze the fear. But, that isn’t easy. So, in my work, I try to cultivate courage in me, and while I do it for me, I’d like to help you do it for you. Together we can cultivate Ly-N courage, so we can all live our Nirvana.
I’ve followed President Trump from the very beginning, and he’s been one of the most influential people in my life, and he’ll never know it. He’s been a role model for me to move forward, bulldoze over my fear and be on my way to bigger and better things. I’ve made so many awesome strides in my life, and I can honestly say he’s motivated me, through every change. Before President Trump, I’d write books, my magazines, and give talks and pursue my business, but then I’d become afraid of something, most often rejection, or failure, and I’d pull back. President Donald J. Trump, isn’t only the best president ever because of his policies, but he’s the best president ever because he inspires me to be unrelenting, full-throttle and LY-N like in the pursuit of my nirvana.
But, why Ly-N? Well, itʻs a play on words. A lion has the kind of characteristics we need in this world to live our purpose. Lions are unyieldingly brave, and protective, when they need to be. They donʻt pick fights; they simply stand up for what they feel they must protect. Lions run in packs, but they also need their alone time to (Iʻm guessing) to escape the demands of the world. :-). Lion courage or LY-N courage is what I strive for, and although itʻs not always easy, I pursue as relentlessly as I can because if I do, then I provide an example for those I love around me to do the same.
Everything I do is about courage, finding it, or celebrating it. I’ve written my two-book memoir, middle grade novels, romance (Christian inspired), and self-help stuff to grow this kind of courage in me, and I hope it inspires you. If you have time, check out my books, videos and soon to come, Momi Merch. When you have an obstacle before you, you have a choice to cower in fear, or you have a choice to roar like a lion, with Ly-N courage!
