Sometimes you read something so good — nay, so profound — that it makes you want to drop to your knees, fan yourself and sing praises, like a little old lady at church.
You’d never expect it from a 1-minute video clip that also mentions Wal-Mart (probably the first time “profound” and “Wal-Mart” have been used in this close proximity) … but that’s precisely why we love it. Check out this week’s #ClarityGem, below, and be sure to watch the video, too!

This week, we want you to know:
Apply it to your own life:
Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love, said this recently while on Oprah’s “The Life You Want” tour.
All we have to say is … Damn, Liz. Preach it.
Because it’s true. Your fear isn’t special. It’s not unique. It’s, as she says, the same old “made in China, Wal-Mart boxed fear” that everyone else has. It’s so boring because it’s just a replica of what most other humans are feeling and experiencing.
When you believe your fear is special … you treat it reverently. Your favor it. And when that happens, you bow to it. Your honor it. You allow it to reign, hold court, and call the shots.
Fear doesn’t deserve reverence. Passion does. #ClarityGems
So, how will you stop favoring your fear today? How boring do you think your fear is? Leave a comment below to let us know!
Make sure you check out the 1-minute clip, too.
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 instead of just 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!
