The Courage to Say Yes

Ep77: The Courage to Say “Yes” with host Paula Jenkins

The month of March is all about courage. This week, we’re looking at the Courage to Say Yes, and I’m having some fun weaving in the courageous story of Disney’s Moana. I first saw the movie Moana in November, and was immediately taken by the story of a girl who had a deep sense of her purpose, and what it meant to really follow her dreams. No matter what her own father told her, that she needed to focus on her role as the future chief, she was drawn to the sea.I found her story very inspiring, and am really excited to share it with you in this episode, too.

Are you wanting to follow your dreams, but afraid to say yes to them? This episode talks about saying yes to courage, and living an amazing life. Four easy steps to follow courage. Click to listen and Pin to save for later.

In this episode, I share four ways that you can wake up to the courage to say yes to the thing that your heart longs to do, even when it feels like a difficult path. I see so many of these traits in the story of Moana, and so I weave her story with my own as I explore these four steps:
1. The Courage of Really Listening to your Heart
2. The Courage of Taking A Step Towards Your Dreams
3. The Courage of Re-assessing And Taking Stock in What You’ve Done
4. The Courage of Trying Again
