“Do One Thing Every Day That Scares You” is a journal that comes with a year’s worth of fear-facing prompts, inspirational quotes and mottoes of encouragement to motivate you to step out of your comfort zone, get out there, and make life worth living.
It provides space to jot down daily examples of your own courage–the small steps that culminate in one bold year.
Jotting down one thing a day, especially on fortifying subjects like gratitude and happiness, is an enormously popular journaling practice (one that is recommended by nearly every best-selling self-help author). Bravery is another key ingredient of self-actualization, so why not make a daily habit of thinking courageously?
The nice thing about this journal is that you can fill out the journal one after another (as in a traditional diary). Or you may prefer to flip through to find the quote that fires your spirit on a particular day. The date lines are blank, awaiting your decision.
“Do One Thing Every Day That Scares You” is also a challenge attributed to Eleanor Roosevelt, who had good reason to look for ways to overcome fear. She was a shy, frightened little girl. Yet, Eleanor was able to build courage and emerge as an role model around the world.
How about you? Are you afraid of something physical – spiders, driving? Or are your fears psychological? Afraid to speak in public, or to return to school?
Each day is an opportunity to perform one small act of bravery; singing out loud, asking for help, admitting a mistake, pitching an idea, accepting a compliment, changing your hair, going for the prize, failing spectacularly and trying agin.
This journal is a perfect gift for recent graduates, milestone birthdays, or as a year-end holiday gift to kick off “New Year, New You” projects and even for your Valentine!
