In our life, career, and relationships, we all go through turbulent times at some point. Life is not always a pretty picture of an ocean wave or scenic mountains. Losing a job, losing a loved one, or even a bad fight can strike at your heart or deep into your soul. Most have love to give. Yet, in difficult times, its learning how to receive, ask for help or give yourself grace that is key.

We love to put on a façade. All day we wear a colorful mask that looks beautiful on the outside yet covers the pain inside. When someone asks “How are you?”, you immediately say “Fine” like a blink of an eye.

When life isn’t so grand, it is important to have cheerleaders in your life. People who support you, listen, and raise you up.

It’s time to take off the mask, expose your truth, and find your cheerleaders.

I recently published an article, How Hockey Healed Me, in The Good Men Project. The article describes how I overcame severe depression and suicidal tendencies as a young teenager. A band of strangers unknowingly supported my journey. These strangers turned into friends who became my cheerleaders. This is the first time, I have publicly conveyed this story in writing.

Your cheerleaders are your community – the people who surround you. This is why Community Engagement is a prime pillar of the Courageous Path framework. It specifically guides you back to deep, rich, soulful connection with others and yourself.

I’m creating a community for you! Yes, you!

Today, I’m officially announcing the inaugural Rise Above: Experience More outdoor retreat scheduled for August 11-14 in Estes Park, Colorado. I’m only accepting 5 folks who want to reach the next level of their life, career, and relationships. At this retreat, you will identify your dreams, bust through your obstacles, and develop courage muscles to go bigger, farther, and do more of what’s fulfilling to you.

Are you ready to live your life to the fullest? To your highest potential? And really make it happen? It’s your time. This is your year. I’m creating this community to support you to reach and attain your highest endeavors.

Do you want in? Email me and we will schedule a short chat and see if you’re a good fit.

It’s your time to have a community of supporters that raise you up, not tear you down.

Wishing you an abundant, joyful and prosperous day!
