First thing’s first: It’s almost Halloween! In Clarity on Fire land, that means we now have a valid excuse to do what all respectable children of the 90s love to do in late October … revel in the fact that Hocus Pocus is on every night! 😉

And even though this week’s #ClarityGem has 0% to do with Halloween, it is about something that scares the crap out of us (and a lot of people we’ve coached) … so maybe it’s appropriately festive after all.

This week, we want you to know:

living up to your potential

Apply it to your own life:

We don’t like to throw around “shoulds,” but this deserves the “should” treatment: You should be having cold sweats about not living up to your potential.

Your “potential” is not what other people think you should do, or what makes logical sense. It’s getting to do things that make you feel alive and free, regardless of what it is and what anyone else thinks.

Most people are hesitant to do what it takes to realize their potential because they {very mistakenly} believe that staying put is safe; that if they don’t take risks they’ll never fail.

But what’s a million times scarier is waking up 5, 10, or 20 years from now and realizing that all along, the real risk was allowing your life to go un-lived. By trying to stay “safe,” you accidentally created what you most feared … failure.

What’s your “potential,” and how can you start to live up to it, despite the fear of the unknown?

twitter-bird Never taking action + pretending to be safe is the riskiest bet of all #ClarityGems

Tell us how you took action:

Use #ClarityGems on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook to share how you’re applying this week’s Gem to your own life, and to see how other people are being inspired.

What #ClarityGems are all about:

Sometimes it’s just better to avoid long blog posts and cut straight to the point!

Think of #ClarityGems as your weekly shake of the good ‘ole Magic 8 Ball … you never know what might bubble up, and how it might be exactly what you need to hear today.

And in addition to a beautiful, inspirational, and shareable image (which is a nice start), we’re giving you some quick thoughts about how to apply it to your life … because inspiration without action is pretty, but kind of anti-climatic.

Tweet it, share it on Instagram, or forward it along to someone who needs to hear it today … and tag us (@ClarityonFire) to let us know how this Gem applies to you!

Much Love,

Rachel + Kristen
