Staring your fear in the face and doing it anyway

Staring your fear in the face and doing it anyway

Today was a full today filled with an in person workshop that allowed my students the ability to work on their goals  in a different way. There was a vision card session that accelerated their learning of what they truly needed to accomplish those goals.  It also allowed those that weren’t sure of those  goals and to bring them forward in their mind.  Then the students were able to take those photos and create a vision board.  The vision board helps to keep your focused on your goals and helps your RAS (Reticular Activating System) in your brain to know what to focus on. Your Reticular Activating System allows your subconscious mind to work on your goal whether you realize it or not.

That evening I invited these students to attend a event in NYC that allowed them to network with like minded people to help them increase their circle of  5 support system which I teach them in the 30 Day Transformational Challenge Toolbox™ program.

My one student who is also a dear friend offered to drive in the city as long as she could go the way that there was no bridges as she has a severe debilitating fear of bridges.  We agreed and headed off to travel to NYC.  All of a sudden she said “Laura look ahead”.

I knew what she was saying as I saw the bridge ahead of us.  She then said ” You are going to have to help me through this.” I thought she was asking me to drive which I said sure I’ll get in the drivers seat.  She said no just walk me through it.  So at that point I had to switch gears and go into coaching mode.  I told her she could do it, that she’s got this.  I also gave her some words that helped her that included the mantra I AM NOW Safe.  I AM NOW ok.  I am calm etc…

Well she did it sweaty palms and all.  She thought ok great I’m done.  However that would not be the case.  This very night she had to cross a total of 5 bridges, each one having her to face her fear and doing it anyway.  She described later what it felt like to look fear in the face and do it anyway.  She agreed that the evening was a success on so many levels which now allow her the freedom and the space to create the future that she wants.


The guest speakers inspired us and we filled our cup up.  The like minded women in the room reminded us that there are others that think the same way to inspire and help others.  The energy in the room was uplifting and energizing.
It was a very good day that gave us all the tools for our toolbox of life and the life of our business.

Interview with Author Steven Lange

Live with Laura Radio interviews Author Steven Lange about his book  “Breathing Room“.

During the  Virtual Author Meet and Greet Laura asks Steven questions about tools he used as an author as well as tools he has used in Life and Business.  Steven gives the listeners a peek into his life growing up.

Steven Lange is no stranger to life’s challenges. One of six boys, he was raised in poverty. Growing up, he provided care as his father suffered with Multiple Sclerosis for nearly ten years. Steven himself suffered a stroke ,had open heart surgery, and melanoma. Most of his adult life was spent at the bottom looking up. Whether this was the reality, or conjecture makes little difference; the end result is the same. He survived several near-death events during twenty four harrowing hours on Long Beach Island, New Jersey when Hurricane Sandy made landfall in 2012. Steven considers himself a blessed survivor in many respects. These life events have shaped a raw, unpretentious style of writing that questions our moral codes, survival mechanisms, and perceptions of who God is, in a way that sugarcoats nothing. His lifelong search to understand contentment has culminated in Steven’s breakout novel, Breathing Room.

Breathing Room is novel that is loosely based on Steven’s actual life. The story of a family’s search for that haven we ALL look for in our lives. Jack Christopher, his wife Patricia,and their six boys are looking to find some relief from the weight of daily survival pressing down upon them. Breathing Room lies between the pains of our past,and our fears of an uncertain future. It is a place of rest that refreshes our soul. In the mid 1960’s, and follows the saga of this family as they fight to survive against overwhelming odds. Along the way , the funny and tender moments that make up the stories that we love to tell, and pass down,unfold in the Christopher home as well. Jack’s greatest fear is that his family will suffer the same fate as the memories of his own childhood…unless someone intervenes.

Steven lives on Long Beach Island, New Jersey with Dianne, his lovely wife of over twenty five years. They have two grown children, Jessica, and Daniel.
