Courage and fearlessness are not the same thing!
Courage is all about understanding your fears and taking action despite them.
Have a Healthy Perspective
Courage truly is like a muscle. You more you use it, the stronger it gets.
None of us are born courageous, and we all have the ability to learn it.
“You can choose courage, or you can choose comfort, but you cannot choose both.” – Brené Brown
Fear Is Not a Bad Thing
Fear shouldn’t be this bad thing we constantly try to avoid at all costs. In fact, a little bit of fear is healthy and can teach us a lot about ourselves.
The next time you’re afraid to do something, take some time to think about what you’re actually afraid of.
The answer may surprise you.
Sometimes our fears can feel more intense than they actually are.
Taking some time to think about realistic worse case scenarios can help you look at scary situations in a new way.
Embrace Stepping Outside Your Comfort Zone
Have you ever said no to something you really wanted to do because you were afraid you’d fail?
If so, you’re not the only one.
Change and uncertainty can be scary at times.
But think about it this way. If we keep doing the same things, we will keep getting the same results.
The best way to become more courageous is by practicing and taking action.
Every single step is one step in the right direction.
Say Hello to Failure
Failure isn’t dangerous and is nothing to be afraid of.
It is a life experience that should be embraced.
“Everything you want is on the other side of fear.” – Jack Canfield
Nothing in life is guaranteed, and we never know what we are capable of unless we try.
