Fearless Living Boot Camp, Day 15 (VIDEO)

Date Published: Sep 24, 2012

I love "new." New ideas. New connections. New careers. New loves.

Watch today's short Fearless Living Boot Camp video and find out what Marines, a museum and this challenge have to do with each other.


Marines are always going into new territories. They are well-trained, well-armed and well-prepared mentally. You need to be the same.

Getting into the habit of exploring new areas, new interests, new possibilities and keeping your mind open to the new experiences that come your way will train your brain to be more flexible, more resourceful and better able to handle stress with ease.

Your job today: Try something new. Something you've never done.

Your willingness to try new things is the only surefire indicator that you're ready to start igniting your imagination and start thinking and doing things that are outside your comfort zone. (Why do you think it's so hard to think of Stretches, Risks and Dies sometimes? Because if you aren't used to thinking a certain way, that way of thinking is beyond your reach UNLESS you are priming the pump on a regular basis and trying something new.)

Without your being open to newness, your life can't change -- even for the better.

Someone who isn't afraid of new experiences will automatically feel comfortable no matter where he is, no matter where he goes, no matter who he's with. Being excited to try something new is also magnetic to others. People want to be around fresh, new and hot.

So go ahead: Try out that new 99-cent hot coral lipstick, or a new 99-cent song on iTunes. "New" doesn't have to cost a lot, but it does guarantee priceless benefits that are incalculable to your self-esteem, self-worth and self-confidence.

Bottom line: You show me someone who isn't afraid to try something new, and I will show you a person who will be successful no matter what.
