Episode #091: 50 Everyday Acts of Courage to Thrive in Work, Love and Life

Brave author Margie Warrell

margie warrellIf you desire to live with purpose, speak more confidently, work with more passion, increase your resiliency, bravely pursue your biggest dreams and ambitions, or all of the above, you’ve got to get this book.

In Part I of Brave: 50 Everyday Acts of Courage to Thrive in Work, Love and Life (which by itself is worth the book’s price), Margie Warrell offers ten building blocks for living bravely. She then moves to offering practical advice for having more courageous conversations about things that matter in Part II. Part III speaks to leaning into risk and how to muster the bravery to do so more often. One of the best parts of the book are the memorable quotes (from both Margie and others) that are highlighted on nearly every page.

Part IV, called Dig Deep, speaks to the resiliency needed when life doesn’t go that way you hoped it would (which it never does, Margie argues). Finally, Margie dedicates Part V to sharing her best advice for pursuing your biggest dreams and ambitions.

Though 50 chapters long, with about 10 chapters dedicated to each section, none is much more than 4 or 5 pages in length. This makes it easy to jump to those areas you need the most help with. Best of all, never does it feel overwhelming. To hear our conversation now, simply click the play button below.
