Webinar The Courage Catalyst, Patricia Brooks

How do you remove fear and get up the courage to do something you’ve always wanted to do…such as move to France?

Patricia Brooks, The Courage Catalyst, is doing just that. She can teach you how to “Go from surviving in a country that no longer suits you, to living and thriving in a country that does!”

She asks:

Whatever happened to that dream you had of living abroad?

Maybe you got the urge to move to a foreign country years ago, and you explored the idea back then, but something stopped you.

Now every time you hear about someone’s expat journey on a podcast or in a blog post, you feel a bit jealous of them and irritated with yourself.  

You think, why can’t I Iive that kind of lifestyle?

The truth is, you can!

But you’ve lost faith that that is even possible. So instead of taking steps to make your dream a reality, you spend way too much time pining away for a life abroad without taking meaningful steps to make it happen.

You find yourself making excuses and procrastinating. And time passed.

Now, you are no closer to living abroad than when your dream found you all that time ago. And now you feel stuck.

You are frustrated, and you tell yourself there has got to be more to life than what you are living.  Anxious, annoyed, and stymied, you relegate yourself to living your dream through the stories of those who are living their lives in foreign countries.  And day after day,  the walls continue to close in on you.

And COVID-19 has made things even worse.  Are you kicking yourself because you didn’t act on your plans and move to that place where you feel so free and alive before the pandemic struck and completely stalled your life?

Despite your dissatisfaction, you can’t seem to break out of procrastination mode.

Sadly, this is where so many expat dreams die.

But what if it doesn’t have to be that way?


This is what Patricia and I are going to explore together!

Join us July 2, 2024 at 7 p.m. France time (10 a.m. Pacific / 1 p.m. Eastern), where Patricia and Adrian Leeds will be discussing how to overcome your fears and make the move to France you’ve been dreaming about for.…how many years did you say? A lot, right!?

Patricia and Adrian will talk about the first two parts of Patricia’s program which are

  1. Identifying your why for wanting to move to France (turning a casual want into a driving need) and
  2. Developing the personality traits/characteristics of the kind of person who moves abroad (belief in self, commitment/decision-making ability, and deservability).

It’s free and will be lots of fun!
