Audentes Fortuna Iuvat - "Fortune favours the bold"

“Fortune sides with him who dares”- Virgil ( Roman Poet ).

Sitting around and expecting to just ‘get lucky‘ isn’t how it works. You have to be willing to go out there, and do.

The Audentes Fortuna Iuvat phrase means that Fortuna, the Goddess of luck, is more likely to help those who take risks or action.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Fear rears its ugly head the moment something you want feels uncomfortable. When it pushes you beyond your “normal”. So push back. Break through your fears with the excitement of knowing that what you want is possible and go for it.

The Fierce & Fearless Coin was designed to serve you as a simple and powerful reminder to maintain your hustle no matter what. Get the coin to help you stay motivated, focused, and goal-oriented.
