Courageous Life® Planning System | Michael Anthony

Develop courage as your new way of life with the courageous life®goal-setting and life planning system

By Michael Anthony

At the end of the day, our lives will be characterized by fear or courage. One trait will overcome the other. They cannot mutually co-exist. The good news is that no one but you gets to decide whether courage or fear will dominate your life. This is something I’ve had to learn, and relearn, for years. It’s something my wife and I are teaching our teenagers about, too, because fear destroys while courage catapults us to unprecedented levels of productivity, influence, and positivity. These are some of the reasons why I created the Courageous Life® Daily Success Journal, and the complete Courageous Life® Planning System ( They are time and life organization journals that are paper on purpose. And they are revolutionizing more and more lives by helping people cut the clutter, focus, and create the kind future they dream about.

Most of us don’t spend nearly enough time focusing on making our life the masterpiece it can be. We miss our potential. The Courageous Life® Planning System helps filter out the imposters from those things that will really move you forward toward making you life a real “masterpiece.” The Planning System helps people think about and prioritize their legacy and long-term goals, which is so important in today’s world where there are so many things posing as important when they really aren’t. It does this by walking each user through a fun, exploratory series of questions in each of the seven areas of life. These seven areas are:


Any goal we want to achieve – and every aspect of our lifetime legacy – will be centered in one of these seven areas of life. By using the Courageous Life® Planning System, I’m nudged each day to evaluate, prioritize, and plan my life in these seven areas. This is what creates incredible positive momentum toward becoming the very best version of myself. Isn’t that one of the main goals we should have for the outcome of our lives? I think it is, and that’s why having a goal-setting and planning system that reduces the risk of missing out on what’s really most important is so vital.

I know myself well enough to know that if I’m not intentional about developing courage, fear will take over, and everything goes downhill from there. I designed the Courageous Life® Planning System as a suite of life-changing journals (and free videos) to do far more than help people set and achieve great goals. I designed it to help people prioritize courage every single day for the rest of their lives.

Think about it: isn’t what you do with your life what life is all about? Isn’t the most important investment you can make the one you make toward reaching your greatest potential? If courage becomes your new way of life, everything will change as a direct result. Now is the time to live with courage, because without it, we aren’t going anywhere.
