Inspired Courage
Breaking Through Your Barriers to Success
by Connie Phelan

Is there anything scarier than fear itself? Anything more convincing than what we tell ourselves? Life is full of opportunities for adventure and achievement, but so many of them seem completely out of reach. We fear change, negative consequences, and uncertainty. We tell ourselves we aren’t smart enough, not ready, not worthy . . . But what if we’re wrong? What if those negative things we tell ourselves—and the things we’re so very scared of facing—are just figments? Empty constructs fashioned from our own internal programing, which begins taking hold the day we are born and grows more ingrained and insidious with every experience and influence to which we are exposed. Our conscious and subconscious beliefs about ourselves, and the world around us, are often the only things that actually stand between where we are and where we want to go—between who we are and who we could become. With practical examples and simple language, as well as a lot of thought-provoking insight and humor, Inspired Courage – Breaking Through Your Barriers to Success will teach you how to recognize your fears and self-limiting beliefs, face them head on, and break through to the other side. Then you’ll finally be free to embrace the world, and yourself, without getting in your own way.

Connie Phelan has been a teenage athlete, dedicated employee and an entrepreneur, beginning her professional career working in the world of printing and advertising, but in all these roles her greatest barriers and limitations came from within. Fear and self-limiting beliefs, which she had carried with her since childhood, had always held her back—even when she didn’t realize they were doing so. It wasn’t until she was (reluctantly) exposed to a new way of being during a personal-development seminar that she broke through her own fears and her life began to change. In 2006, inspired by her own transformative experience, she became the founder and CEO of Fire Power Seminars, and as a speaker and facilitator has worked with thousands of individuals from all walks of life, ranging from leaders and employees within organizations and companies both large and small—including Fortune 500s, university students, athletes, and people in addiction recovery. A certified firewalk instructor, as well as a certified neuro-linguistic programming practitioner, she has a passion for helping people discover potential they never knew they had, so they can start living their best lives. Starting from a place of caution and self-doubt in Fort Lauderdale—Connie now lives in Atlanta with her partner and four-legged family members, and enjoys “adventure travel,” snow-covered mountains, and chasing the northern lights.
