Fierce and Fear may start off sounding the same…until you feel her roar. The question is, have you lost your roar?

Do you feel as though you’ve lost your fierce? Your strength? Your force? Your power? Do you feel like you’ve lost your way?

No worries…because today I share 4 discoveries that can change everything.

Here’s how to locate it.

Think about this, Lady Lion, perhaps it’s because of one of these…

1. Lost – You’ve lost your way.

How do you gain back your ground? How do you identify your “found?”

Start with the truth that you FEEL lost.

Then locate yourself.

Remember what you believe, desire, and trust.

2. Lack – You feel as though you don’t have, or you’re missing, something.

Perhaps it’s information, or a relationship?


You haven’t trusted yourself, the process, others…or maybe you haven’t even trusted God.

There is a trust issue that’s led to lack in your life.

What it takes to move from lack to abundance is focus and intense faith…in the process…what you believe, desire, and in whom you trust.

Do you trust YOURSELF?

Hope is belief, desire, and trust.

And guess what? Faith is the substance of what you hope for.

This will lead you to focus, and have the faith necessary to actually get your FIERCE back.

3. Love. Maybe you haven’t yet discovered what you really LOVE.

Excuses are oftentimes a symptom of not really being as “into it” as you say you are.

You’re doing it because you think you “should” be doing it. OR…

It’s a good idea, a maybe…“woulda, coulda, shoulda.”

It may sound like a good idea, but it’s not YOUR call.

It’s not YOUR true love.

It’s not your INSPIRED place — YOUR life’s work.

If this is true…

Then it’s NOT for you. Even if it’s a great thing.

If you’re not in love with it…set yourself free!

It’s time for you to get HONEST with yourself.

It’s okay for you to NOT be ALL iNTO it.



Allow yourself to see the truth.

To know the truth, walk in it, and live out the truth.

Because knowledge of the truth sets you free.


When you live in truth, you stop carrying around the heaviness of all the “woulda, coulda, shoulda,” and actually get down to business.

You step into the freedom that’s available — the fierce nature of who you are.

4. Lazy. Yes, you simply may be lazy.

You may want it ALL without doing any work.

Is this true?

Are you feeling lazy?

You must take action.

Stop saying you want, you want, you want. Because it will keep you in want.

You must tap into your desire.

When you do — along with your INSPIRE, and inspired inspiration — you’ll tap into a power, and energy to actually get the work done.

The do. That is who. Which is YOU, my dear.

It’s time to reclaim your FIERCE.

Look at each of these areas and identify which one (or ones) requires your attention.

What’s asking for your attention?

What are you committed to giving your focus and attention to, and where are you ALL IN to sharing your heart and soul…your undivided attention and care?

Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)


What do you desire to DO right now, but for some reason you’ve felt weak and uncommitted in following through and getting the results you desire?

Write it down.

Circle it.

Take a look.

Which one of these L-Words is YOU?

Make a commitment today with laser sharp focus.

That Lady Lion isn’t missing.

That FIERCE is in there.

You must be willing to express the creative nature and power that is uniquely you, my dear!
