Ep. 64 Shownotes: Faith Over Fear—Thoughts from an Airplane at 30,000 Feet

Today’s episode comes from an airplane at 30,000 feet en route from Florida to San Diego. It’s all about the 5 Ways to overcome FEAR, beat the coronavirus epidemic, live with more FAITH, and what we need to do NOW to ultimately look back at this unprecedented time and realize it was a massive catalyst for epic positive change in your life.

Remember, in any challenging and tough time, there is always opportunity. And there is an opportunity today. I share these specific opportunities that exist now in today’s episode and challenge you to rise-up TODAY. Go out there, smile, and let your light shine. And whether you are in your house, your home gym, the regular gym, on a plane, back to work, or out for a walk…remember to SMILE 10x today. A smile is always good for the body, mind, and soul.

Thanks for listening in today from the “airplane.” Please share your thoughts with me over on SM and tag me. I want to know the answer to the million-dollar question I pose, and how you are serving as a vessel of LIGHT and LOVE in today’s world that so desperately needs you…

Listen in and enjoy the episode!
