Live Fearlessly

Hi everyone! I came across this inspirational video and wanted to share it with you. It's from Oprah's Lifeclass series featuring Tony Robbins. It's super motivating and will definitely put a smile on your face. Plus, Tony is a super cutie pie! I also had a look at some of her other Lifeclass videos featuring Deepak Chopra which are also great and worth taking a look at! 

This one in particular deals with living without any fear - nothing holding you back. Isn't the thought in itself is so relaxing? I think we all have little things holding us back from time to time. One of my biggest fears, believe it or not, was public speaking. I used to be very shy and super awkward whenever I had to give presentations in class. With a little practice, and lots of readjusting my way of thinking, I've thankfully moved passed it! Facing your fears is a great way to conquer them, so putting yourself out there and owning that fear can really have a huge impact in your life. I try applying this to even the smallest things, like for instance if I have a pile of dishes stacking up and I feel like putting it off time after time, I just get up and do it so it's done! Sometime's Nike's tag "Just do it" puts me into "let's-get-this-done" mode real quick. This can also apply to other area's of life, like exercising. The end result is of course the big reward cause you know you'll feel so good when it's accomplished! 

Is there anything that is holding you back from accomplishing something? Have you tried doing anything to overcome it? Have you succeeded? Share with me below! XOXO

"You can conquer any fear if you will only make up your mind to do so. 
For remember, fear doesn't exist anywhere except in the mind."

- Dale Carnegie

  5. Hi Annie! Love your blog and videos! Your blog is a daily stop on my web browsing routine :D I guess a fear that holds me back is the idea that I wont find someone who loves me. After it didnt work out with my longtime boyfriend, I had a fear that I wouldnt find someone who accepts me for me, and accepts the fact that I'm saving myself for marriage. With the help of you and your inspirational posts I've faced that fear a little bit, and allowed myself to think that there IS someone out there for me. So your ideas of a healthy lifestyle and taking care of yourself have helped me in other areas of my life as well. Thanks so much Annie!

    1. I think that's something everyone thinks about, but as corny as it may sound, there IS someone for everyone, sometimes maybe more than 1 person! Everything happens when it's meant to :) Just stay positive and take care of yourself! xoxo

  6. My fear is that I will not live up to my own expectations. I'm sometimes very hard on myself, and I hope to accomplish a lot throughout my life like graduate from university, get married to a good man who is good to me, have a family, be a good mother, etc. I've battled through some times of depression when times have gotten hard, and I'm afraid of those moments coming back to haunt me and that I won't be able to accomplish my dreams because of that. But your blog and your videos have truly helped me stay positive, and I believe that I have changed my life a lot from what it used to be. So thank you :) I guess that in a way, you've helped me overcome a little of that fear!
    Much love xoxo, Olivia from Montreal

  7. This helped me a lot Annie!
    I have a health condition and I need to get a laser procedure. It's nothing too serious but i cry myself every single time i think of it. I've got wonderful parents that help me with all to money to get started with the treatment but it's something really hard to deal with. I am trying to find courage to finally do it. :(

  10. My biggest fear is also public speaking i avoid it like the plague.. i'm slowly trying to conquer it by being more interactive in my classes and getting that practice in whenever opportunity presents itself. Love your blog, stay beautiful, xoxo.

  11. Hi Annie,

    I know you often get a lot of comments from viewers and readers, thanking you for your time and effort, for being inspirational and motivating and in general, just plain darn wonderful. I always get excited when I see new posts (like your new smoothie post as I came to your website to write this!) and videos...but I have never taken the time out of my day to really thank you! You have been an amazing inspiration and the 'friend' (if i can call you that) that I've needed during a period where I have lost a lot of close friends. Watching Lifeclass has been an exceptional eye opener and this combined with my current reading of The Secret is really opening my eyes to how much I have closed the doors to opportunities and experiences based on my current thoughts and attitudes!

    I just wanted to thank you for your amazingness! You truly are a blessing and its wonderful to see someone with such passion for life, health and wellbeing! Keep up the great work Annie! You have touched a lot of people out there and nothing but good will come your way because of it.

    With much love from Australia,
    Sachi <3

  14. Hi Annie!
    I loooooove your blog! I'm allways talking about it to my friends!
    Just want to tell you that I saw the "Sucker Punch" movie and loved it, because is about one girl that have so many fears (she was abused) and she needs to get ways to escape from the local taht she was sended to. They said one thing that I didn't forget: "You have all the weapons you need, now fight" - "your mind can set you free".
    This movie made me think about so many things that happens in my life...
    Peace and love
