From the Author
"What would you do if you had no fear?" is the question Ive been asking for years, first in my workshops and retreats. When I saw the profound effect it had on people, I started asking people everywhere I went. I had to overcome the fear that people would think that Im: a) delusional or b) trying to pick them up for kinky sex.
The answers stunned and amazed both myself and the people I asked. Women and men opened up, told me stories and dreams they had never revealed before. I could literally see an awakening as they talked about long buried aspirations they had not let themselves entertain. I spoke to ordinary people who have done extraordinary things. Heroes who think they arent. I talked to FBI agents and a man who runs a butterfly farm in the Virgin Islands. Others like:
Jan, who went to Paris alone in the winter on her 40th birthday, met the man of her dreams and now lives one block from the Arc de Triomphe.
Eleanor, who escaped from the Nazi death march by rolling in a ditch to save her life.
Don, who spent half his life in San Quentin and now walks across the US relishing freedom and making friends.
My prayer is that you join in this journey with me as your slightly neurotic, frequently shaky guide, and that you declare your dreams. The magic happens the moment you do!
