The Psych On the Bike! A Biker/Psychologist

This allows me to live my life to the fullest, authentically, and teach others how to do the same. Why Courage to Thrive? Because all of us imagine a thriving life but have reasons why we are not.   Self sabotage, traumas, obstacles, etc. conspire to keep us from Thriving.  It takes Courage to get out of our safe routines, our comfort zone. Thriving means to grow vigorously and we do that by entering the unknown. And that takes Courage!  We should not be okay with living lives of quiet desperation, to merely survive, but rather have an intense hunger for living and growing vigorously, Thriving!
