Kate Swoboda on The Courage Habit
Courage. Merriam-Webster defines it as mental or moral strength to venture, persevere and withstand danger, fear or difficulty.
Notice that it doesn’t say to do so in the absence of danger, fear or difficulty?
Today’s guest, Kate Swoboda, is leading the charge on courage and making a massive impact on her clients (and the world) as an author, a coach and a teacher. Kate’s book, “The Courage Habit” will help you identify what no longer serves you, find out what your most courageous self truly wants, and help you align your life with your desires through learning and practicing the habit of courage.
Kate and I unpack what it means to be courageous, how to listen to our fear, and how to show up for ourselves- even when everything within us wants us to lock the door and shut the shades.
If you’re ready to start taking inspired and courageous action in your life, and to start making it a habit- this one’s for you.
