It’s always there to stop you dead in your tracks. It’s the enemy of your soul and my soul. It’s a never-ending hurdle that you must jump every, single day.

Fear.

As Moms we fear what will happen to our children? As wives we fear what will happen to our marriages? As women we fear if we’re good enough, smart enough or talented enough? There’s an opportunity presented to each one of us, daily, to fight our fears. But how about trying on a new concept: not fighting. How about becoming so fierce that you don’t have to fight fear anymore? What does it look like to be fierce, fearless, and free to be?

I love this quote by Lucas Jonkman, “Fight your fears and you’ll be in battle forever. Face your fears and you’ll be free forever.” That’s what I want, freedom to be me without fear!

For the next three weeks, we will look at some simple strategies that you can use to become so fierce that you are fearless and free.

Strategy#1: UNDERSTAND YOUR PURPOSE. When you know why you were created and what you’re supposed to do, you become unstoppable. Purpose gives you the courage to face whatever fears you have because you have a reason to move forward. You don’t think about quitting, giving up or failing (for more than a second) when you have purpose fueling you and compelling you to take one more step. To be fierce, fearless and free, know your purpose.
