Your Megyn Kelly Moment

The news broke yesterday as I was a third of the way through her new book, Settle for More.

Megyn Kelly was leaving a rumored $20 million dollar offer at Fox and moving to NBC to host a daytime and Sunday night news show.

At the same time, after posting here about a new pursuit of one's Big Dreams, I have continued to receive messages and private emails from women saying yes to my proposed experiment--to take one step every day to help them move toward their Big Dream.

Coincidence? I think not.

While reading Kelly's book on the treadmill (yay, small step!), I was struck by something the wife and mother of three wrote in her journal during her crazily successful years as a big-time lawyer.

I am more exciting than this! I am more interesting than this! I am more interested than this! I need more out of life!

Kelly goes on to write how she had become mesmerized by midnight reruns of Oprah, who spoke about how we are all one decision away from changing our lives. Kelly explains the series of decisions she proceeded to take to become a television journalist. And then she lands on this:

"I was excited to feel my TV career coming alive. It was as if it had been waiting for me all of these years, lying dormant, and now I'd found it. I was energized getting out of bed in the morning. Here, again, was that familiar feeling--the same confidence I'd felt doing moot court in law school: I got this. That sense of pride and delight, drained from years of overwork, started to seep back into my life, and I could not get enough of it."

That's what I'm talking about! Energized to get out of bed in the morning.

Did you wake up like that today?

If not, what can you do right now to wake up like that tomorrow?

Recently I did something many think is absolutely nuts.

Tomorrow I'll fill you in!
