The Daring Days of August

So, are you someone who sincerely and passionately desires a full life?

Because a lot of people “say” that’s how they want to live, but they can’t think of how or why or when, so they just don’t. Too much gets in the way — like time or jobs or kids or school or lazy or fear or “I can’t.”

I want to give you an opportunity.

A chance to push yourself a little.

A dare a day.

A dare a day that helps you practice being purposeful.

Now, as soon as I say a “dare”, many of you will get scared and think this is for “other” people. Brave, extroverted people.

Stop now.

Not true.


Because it’s time for you to stop coasting and start toasting, baby. It’s your day, your time, your opportunity to JUST CHOOSE. Choose to say YES to something that might be new or different or daring.

Seriously. How many times have you missed an awesome opportunity because you were scared or hesitant or unsure?

Now, for those of you who get freaked out by this kind of stuff, let me ease your mind.

  1. Every dare can be done in a day – and it won’t take a lot of time.
  2. It won’t be dangerous or expensive.
  3. You won’t have to eat something weird or do something strange.
  4. Each dare is specifically created to encourage you to live a fuller and more purposeful life.

So, what are the rules for The Daring Days of August?

  1. Do the dare for the day.
  2. Post about it.

You have to do the thing for sure. But the accountability part is posting about the thing on Facebook or Instagram or Twitter. Tagging me would be amazing — but it is certainly not required. Just do the dare and dive right in.

I can see it.

You’re freaking out right now.

But one of my mantras is “Today is the best day ever because if today were my last day I would want it to be my best day. Therefore today is the best day ever.”

You don’t know how many days you have left. Why don’t you decide to take the dare?

Each dare will be posted starting August 1, 2019 on my Speaker/Author page on Facebook. You’ll need to follow this link and “like” my page so that you can find the daily dares. If you’re more of an Instagram person, I will also be posting it there. Just follow me (@carrielane) on Instagram.

Oh, and make sure you comment – either here, on Facebook, or Insta – to let me know you’re in. So in. Completely in.

Let’s do this.
