Facing Uncertainty Head-On

Jul 10, 2008
As someone whose English teacher considered her one of the worst writers in the world, you may be surprised to know that Lisa Nichols has two book deals going with the super-successful "Chicken Soup for the Soul" series. She was also featured in Rhonda Byrne's "The Secret". Lisa's true passion lies in speaking and in the company she founded, Motivating the Teen Spirit LLC.

Motivating the Teen Spirit is an organization that has dramatically changed the lives of many teens and their parents. At least 60,000 lives have been touched, but more specifically, over 1,800 suicides have been prevented and nearly 1,000 high school dropouts have returned to school. Many teens have been reunited with their parents.

Lisa has had a passion for helping people since her youth. She remembers many prayers to God begging for help and guidance. She promised herself that if God would help her through, she'd later help others as well. Lisa was just like any other teenager, as social as could be, but she needed help with emotional illiteracy.

Greatness isn't something you're born with. It doesn't come from some sort of "magic fairy dust." Lisa Nichols believes every great person is a product of whatever life has dealt them. Each experience, whether good or bad, should be a learning one. Each challenge should be considered an opportunity for growth.

In Biblical days, Moses was called upon to speak, but he was so scared that he tried to get his brother Aaron to step in for him. Lisa was similar in her earlier days. She always wanted to be a speaker, but she was afraid. "How can I speak," she thought. "I got a 'D' in speech class." Lisa dwelled on her can't-do attitude for five long years before finally following the path she believed God wanted her to follow.

Many people today struggle with passions as well. It doesn't have to be a passion for speaking. It could be anything. Lisa would often feel as if God were calling her, but she would say, "Can you call back later?" She had a great job making a six-figure income. She had benefits, and she had a small child to consider.

We just face our fears. Don't let the seemingly secure life keep you from reaching your real goals. Are you happy with your life? Are you TRULY happy with your life? Is there anything you could change or make better? If so, you're not truly happy, and you need to face whatever fear is holding you back.

Lisa Nichols overcame her fears by studying speech, facilitation, and entrepreneurship. She began working with teens for free. In time, confidence and credibility allowed her to start charging a fee. Now she's happier than she ever dreamed possible back when her life was "secure". Overcome your own obstacles and be happy!
