I love rule #1. There have definitely been times in my life when I've let myself be held back by fear. And I think that can be crippling. But those times when I've brushed fear aside have been so incredibly rewarding and inspiring.

Lovely post!


I really liked this. :) So positive!
And I very much agree with having a goal. You can be doing all the right things, but with no goal to reach, it can leave you feeling out of place.

Molly - Glad you liked these rules! Jonathan did a great job on this post, making it so inspiring. I agree that Rule #1 is so essential when it comes to following one's heart. Thanks for the comment!

Jaclyn - I'm so happy you liked it. I agree that Jonathan's words are really inspiring and can help anyone to move toward reaching his or her goal. Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks for the Stamp of love guys. I m glad to see you love the post. Now lets make a rule to be influential people. =)

Hi Jonathan,
Great points said uniquely YOU. All very true... it is all too common that people stop listening to their hearts and simply drift through life. Banish any tendency that fixes your mind on mediocrity. Consider it a bluff, and then call the bluff. Voluntarily endure the shock of imagining there is something calling you from within. It is unnatural to be clutched by hardened thoughts... let you imagination soar!

I love how this is just infused with passion on the topic and conviction in the points presented. A post with heart! :)

Jonathan - Thank YOU for the great post, Jonathan! You have a very unique style and I love it! Seems like my readers do too...

Rob - Thanks for the comment on Jonathan's post! I love this line: "Banish any tendency that fixes your mind on mediocrity." Such great, inspiring advice!

CC - Me too! Jonathan's post has a great deal of passion in it and that's very inspiring. I'm glad you liked the heartfelt nature of it.

This is a wonderfully creative and wise post Jonathan! I agree with you that fear should most definitely be kicked to touch! It can whittle away life's possibilities until there's nothing left but the dreaded comfort zone...anathema to those of us who wish to journey til the end! I can see that with your wisdom and authentic spirit you will always stretch yourself to greatly surpass your goals in life Jonathan.Delighted to meet you (NETaphorically speaking!)tonight and looking forward to delving into your website and rummage through your creative treasure chest! Best and warmest wishes, Rosemary

Yo Jonathan- great job on this one, my friend. I enjoyed it from the jump, to the end. We speak endlessly about setting goals and how to court fear...but you just kicked it up a notch.

As usual, the story-based tone adds passion, emotion and incorporates a vision, which drives home the point and focus.

Thanks for the knowledge.


Rosemary - Thank you for your thoughtful comment on Jonathan's post! You made some great points about fear and how it can take away from the possibilities of life. It's great to see your comment -- thank you for stopping by PP!

JK - I'm so glad you enjoyed the post. Like you, I found it to be a great read from start to finish and I agree that Jonathan's post took some of the themes people often discuss and made them just a little bit stronger. Definitely a great post by Jonathan -- and I really appreciate your great comment too!

Jonathan. This was absolutely fantastic! Very well written. Both rules hit home for me. It reminds me of one of my favorite quotes by Bill Cosby "Feel the fear, and do it anyway." I am so glad I found this article. Your creativity is impressive.

Thank to all of your comments. It's much appreciated. Especially to all my reader who subscribe to my website. You guys are great. Thank you Dani for the opportunity. I hope to be a more effective next time around. Peace.

Lisa - So glad you liked Jonathan's post! I agree that he's made some fantastic points -- and so did you with that great connection to the Cosby quote. Thanks for reminding me of that!

Jonathan - You're welcome! As you can see, your post has been very well-received. I'm so happy that readers are liking it as much as I did when I first read it. Great stuff!

Hi Jonathan!
Great points. There is nothing like listening to our hearts. This is the best guidance we could ever receive. And having a goal to follow is a perfect combo. Our goals keep us motivated and in action.

Thanks for your inspiring thoughts. Loving blessings!

Andrea - Thanks for the comment! Jonathan's words were definitely inspiring and I'm glad to hear you thought so as well.
