Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway

My first hand painted koru rock for 2011! 364 more to go!!
This rock was sourced from a beach in Taranaki and will fit in the palm of your hand. It is yellow and purple although the purple is not visible in the photo.

Koru Hand Painted Rock 1

So it’s the first day of 2011 and some would say an auspicious day with the numbers 01/01/11.
So what is my thought for the day?
“Feel the fear and do it anyway” – I can’t remember who said this but I know one thing for sure and that is, “fear” is so gonna get kicked to the curb this year! It is the one thing that can stop a person from achieving their goals and living a purposeful, passionate life. And it’s the reason why I’ve put things off in the past, worrying about what others may think, being overly critical of my work and being a perfectionist – the list goes on! Fear of failure and fear of success, all in the same sentence!
And because this is my first hand painted rock for the year – I’m going to give it away for free! If you want to claim this first rock go over to facebook and connect with me there. And don’t forget to mention that you have been to my website so I know why you are connecting with me.
If you want to know about my rock a day project visit my previous post or if you want to know more about my koru hand painted rocks then please look around my website. And keep a look out for future rocks everyday in 2011!

  1. Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway is from the awesome book by Susan Jeffers, PhD. I love that phrase and use it all the time. I love your work, so peaceful and pretty at the same time. Thanks!
