Instead of doubting yourself, fearing you’ll make a mistake, and feeling like you need to play “small” so you don’t disrupt the status quo, start showing up for yourself so you can show up for the world. Don’t regret a life half-lived. Stepping up and pursuing your dreams is hard … and it’s exhilarating, and it’s important.

What You’ll Learn
How to Begin is about getting to grips with how to actually change your behaviour so you stay curious a little bit longer. You have to tame your Advice Monster, that part of you that jumps in to offer up ideas, opinions, suggestions and advice.
- Find and refine your Worth Goal – discover why a Worthy Goal needs to be thrilling, important and daunting (and why two out of the three won’t do).
- Test your Worth Goal, to make sure it’s the best one for you – you’ll discover the Goldilocks Zone test and three other essential tests.
- Get clear on what it really means to be committed to your Worthy Goal – get clear on the question you need to ask yourself to be sure.
- Build the resources to cross the threshold and begin – including identifying the four types of people you need to travel with.
