Being kind isn't for sissies. And keeping track of kindness may just be the thing that keeps you in a good mood all day long. (It's worth a try, right?)

Watch today's Fearless Living Boot Camp video to determine if you see love in action throughout your day. (If you missed any of the previous Boot Camp posts or videos, you can find all of them here. Oh -- and if you haven't enlisted yet but would like to, click the "Connect" button at the bottom of the page, or go to Social Workout's Fearless Living Boot Camp homepage.) Okay, here's today's video:

Watched it? Great! Now, here's your FEARLESS LIVING BOOT CAMP CHALLENGE, DAY 9:

Keep track of kindness.

Yep. That's it.

Kindness shown anywhere. To anyone. At any time. No matter how small. Or how big.
I'm talking ANY and EVERY KINDNESS you see today.

There's no process for determining where kindness can show up in your life. Be open to it everywhere, from everyone.

I'm a firm believer that kindness matters and can change the world. The Dalai Lama says, "My religion is kindness," and I feel the same way.

I'm not always good at it. (I forget too!) But I am always striving to be better.

Points. Post. Now. Track your points each and every day over on the Social Workout homepage! If today's challenge was a Stretch, add 1 point to your total. A Risk? Add 7 points to your total. If doing this is a "Die" for you, give yourself 28 points. (The point system is explained more fully both here and on Social Workout's homepage, if you're not quite sure.)

Track your points, so you can win! (Everyone loves to win, right?) You could win my bestselling book, Fearless Living, or you could win THREE private one-on-one sessions with me, or my kick-butt Fearless Living Training Program. And of course, you'll receive the best gift of all: BECOMING FEARLESS!
