A Belizean proverb states, "The higher the monkey climbs, the more it is exposed to danger." For Dr. Robin, this means that the farther you go outside your comfort zone, the scarier it may feel.
What does being courageous mean to you? Are you feeling scared to be who you are, say what you feel or live in the truth of what works for you? If so, Dr. Robin says changing your thoughts and behaviors is a great act of courage—and it's a challenge worth undertaking to live your best life. "Take the risk of living life honestly, authentically, not pretending, not hiding," she says.
