New York, NY, April 05, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- “…I want to be fearless at 50,” says Leeza Gibbons, former host of Entertainment Tonight and Leeza, and now currently hosting a nationally syndicated radio program, Leeza Live. Gibbons, a participant in the current edition of Dancing with the Stars, celebrated her fiftieth birthday during the first week of this Monday night hit television show.
Jacqueline Wales, founder of Fearless Fifties ™ (http://www.fearlessfifties.com) couldn’t agree with her more. Jacqueline Wales coaches women from around the world to empower them to live vibrant, energetic lives, by helping them to move beyond their comfort zone.
What does it mean to be Fearless at Fifty? According to Wales, the answer is simple. It’s about facing your fears each and every day. Fear is what stops a woman from living a thriving, passionate, and joy-filled life which is hers to claim.
“At midlife, women find themselves assessing where they’ve been and what they’ve done. We reflect on our lives, on our pains and sorrows, as well as on our joys and accomplishments,” says Wales. “All of these elements, intricately woven together, create us into magnificent women. It’s a time of celebration and a time to look deep within our hearts to plan the next steps – into a new frontier – fearless, focused, and in our fifties (or more). Fearless Fifties is about changing the way we think about midlife!”
No stranger to life’s difficulties and in her mid-fifties herself, Wales' experiences from childhood to womanhood taught her many life lessons she now draws upon when working with other Baby Boomer women. She helps them to uncover what’s standing in the way, what’s keeping them stuck and adding to their struggle. She helps them to map out a journey that will lead them to living the life they desire.
According to Wales, “It all starts with making a choice -- to show up to life as it presents itself – fear and all. Fear keeps us from exploring and going beyond our comfort zone. We must move forward, each day, one step at a time. By creating purposeful goals aligned with our vision, by focusing on self-care and balancing life responsibilities with life passions, we can map out our journey for the years ahead. Midlife is an exciting time for learning and growth.”
Jacqueline Wales, motivational speaker, author, and coach, works with women to help them step through their fears to live their best life now.
