Hi Team- 

Last night, I did a Live Broadcast on Facebook and shared a quote with the group by Coach John Calipari, the Head Basketball Coach at The University of Kentucky.

Ready for it?

"As I became more secure in myself, I liked that I could make my life about everyone but me"

This was powerful.

It applies to so many aspects of our life...

Whether you are Coach, Teacher, CEO, President, Parent... think about how amazing it would be if you woke up each day, not worried about YOU because you trust yourself, believe in yourself, are healthy, and know what you stand for....

That sense of security is an amazing feeling...

Today, we hear so much about GROWTH and IMPROVEMENT... but what people really want is security, safety, and a feeling that they are going to be OK.

That is it.

It distills down further to the word: HAPPINESS.

Happiness is a feeling of safety, security, and belief that all is well.. all is ok.. you are on solid footing and truly believe it!

The quote that Coach Cal shared was in essence saying, "When I became happy with myself, I was able to give my life to others.. and do what I do for others.. because I am safe..."

The reason many have anxiousness is because they do not feel safe.

The reason many feel scared, fearful, hesitant, uneasy, and frustrated is because they feel unsafe.

This can be in many moments, or, for some they live their whole life this way.

They spend their life "chasing" security and certainty...

My advice to you is STOP IT.

You will not catch it because you already have it.

You just have to come to terms with it and your life.. 

Realizing, your external environment and what you find in it will never give you security or the safety you seek.

You find that within yourself.

So, spend your time untangling some of your wires so you can start thriving and living with high vitality and energy!!!

Got it?

Now, let's have a great weekend!

Your Coach,

COACH DANA CAVALEA
