Amy in Santa Hat - Christmas 2015

This is Amy Friese coming to you today on Christmas Eve, December 24, 2015.

I just wanted you all to know that I’ve been thinking about you all year long. It’s been an amazing 2015 and I’m gonna write a little bit more about that coming up.

But on this day of family and celebration, and sometimes a little heartache, and some missing of people who may or not be there, I just wanted to reach out to you and let you know that I do very much love and appreciate every single one of you. Thank you for being a part of this amazing year…  

life begins inspirationI thought of you yesterday.

I thought of you as I ran ridiculously fast, furious and full of fright. I ran ‘ALL OUT’ which in layman’s terms means, run as freaking fast as you can without dying, passing out, falling off the treadmill, peeing your pants or not caring if any aforementioned events actually happen.

As our coach cheered us on and the music pulsated overhead, I decided to go for it. But as my fingers fumbled to find the right buttons and my breath labored, I found myself thinking,

What in the hell are you doing?! Are you effing crazy? You might die and I guarantee this going to SUCK big time.

Then I heard a raspy, commanding voice in my head. It was Tony Robbins, telling me to take MASSIVE ACTION right now… Don’t wait… DO IT!

In an instant, I quizzed, If not now, Amy… when?

don't panic frustration manDang, Amy. That’s one helluva opening pic. I felt the punch in the gut the first time I laid eyes on it, too. PANICBam! POW! Splat! Ick.

Hundreds of times over the past year, I’ve danced with debilitating fears of whether or not playing it safe was helping or killing me (and my business). I hoped hiding out in my office, staying quiet, keeping my fingers crossed, wishing, praying and sprinkling in meditation for good measure would miraculously transfer millions to my bank account, automatically connect me with everyone around the globe, and transform me into an overnight success.

What actually played out was this: I’d sit at my desk, heart pounding, agonizing over what to do…
