Sponsor Love: 30 days of courage!

It takes courage to apologise when you realise you’ve messed up. It takes courage to say no to a request that doesn’t feel right for you. It takes courage to speak up when we hear bigotry or hatred been spread.
It takes courage to choose the path that is right for us, even if no-one else in our life understands that. It takes courage to tell your story. It takes courage to be sick. It takes courage to love.

Every choice that really matters in your life will take courage.

And courage is something you can cultivate. It’s not something that some people get, and the rest of us don’t. Courage is a quality which is innate to your being, but it takes practice to use it and this course offers daily exercises to help cultivate courage, and then begin to take small acts of daily bravery – which will add up to a more courageous, more authentic, more fulfilling life.

I’ve had some great questions about the course that you might also be asking. So here are the answers.

How does it work?

When the course starts, you’ll get access to a course website where one lesson per day will be added as we make our way through the 30 days. Each of those lessons will also be delivered to you by email. Every day you’ll be offered a simple exercise to put your courage into practice, and access to a private Facebook group to share your experiences with the exercises.

The course also comes with a series of audio guides to courage and at the end you’ll receive a beautifully designed courage workbook containing all the lessons and exercises, plus transcripts of each of the audio guides to courage.

At any time during the course, you can email me with your questions, concerns or celebrations. My support team is also available to help with any technical problems.

How do I sign up?

To sign up, just click here and use either the ‘Register’ or the ‘Register with installments’ button in the pink box headed: “Sign up for 30 Days of Courage.”

Do I need to be online at certain times?

No, you don’t. The lessons can be accessed at any time between 4 August and 4 September 2014.

How much time will it take each day?

It might take you 5-10 minutes to read the daily lesson and then the daily exercises in courage can usually be completed in 5-15 minutes. So it could vary between 10-25 minutes per day. If you need to skip a day, you can easily pick up where you left off using either the emails in your inbox or by going to the course website and accessing the lessons there.

How many questions can I ask throughout the course?

As many as you need. My commitment is to give you the support you need to build the daily habits of courage that add up to a courageous life.

I’m not very brave. Is this course right for me?

Yes. Absolutely. This course is designed to help you uncover and recognise the innate courage you already have (even if you don’t see it yet) and to practice small acts of bravery every day – which over time will add up to the courage you need to live the life you want.

How much does it cost?

This course costs US$75 – or you can pay in four weekly installments of US$20.
