How to build up courage to break out of your comfort zone!
First …what is courage?
Courage is….. feeling the fear but doing it anyway,
“the ability to do something that frightens one”……
“strength in the face of pain or grief”….
Wikipedia states ……
Courage is the ability to confront fear, pain, danger, uncertainty or intimidation.
Physical courage is courage in the face of physical pain, hardship, death or threat of death.
Moral courage is the ability to act rightly in the face of popular opposition, shame, scandal or discouragement.
Courage can be learned with practice!
Developing courage will help you to
achieve the great success that is possible for you.
Dream Big Dreams
Develop the courage to dream big dreams and
to set big goals.
Silence the critic in your mind and
ignore the naysayers even if they are your family.
They may mean well and love you very much
BUT this is your Dream, your Life!
Ask yourself…If you knew you could not fail
what great thing would you do??
Ok, let your mind ponder that thought
for a few minutes and notice
what dreams come to you.
Now sit down, write out your goals
as if anything were possible for you as
you develop the courage to Dream Big Dreams.
Make a Commitment and follow through.
Start by making a commitment to something
you absolutely love and can be
accomplished in a short amount of time.
Develop your courage to make bigger
commitments with each success gained.
By accomplishing smaller goals you are
building up your courage.
Successful people live life fully engaged!
Life offers no guarantees for anyone,
but those who reach their goals do so
by putting their heart and soul into
the activities that are constantly bring
them closer to their goals.
My Father would often say to me while growing up....
If you fall down a 1000 times they get up 1001
Ok, so now you’re ready to
Move out of Your Comfort Zone
Developing the courage to move out of your comfort zone
often causes you some discomfort, where you may
feel awkward, clumsy and sometimes so alone.
There is a saying that ….
“If you always do what you have always done,
you will always get what you have always got”
In order for things to change you must make a change!
You need the courage to continually move yourself in the
direction of your biggest goals and ambitions.
You need to be willing to face discomfort in order for you to grow.
Courage to Step Out in Faith
You need the Courage to step out of your Comfort Zone in
Faith with no guarantees of success.
Courageous people are those who have a Dream and
set a Goal, make a plan and take the first step,
with no assurances and no guarantees that
their efforts will result in success.
However, if you look upon every step forward as
a learning experience and every setback as a
valuable lesson that has been sent to you to
make you stronger and better, you will
not be afraid to step out in faith into the unknown.
Courage is needed to Risk Failure.
You need the courage to get through the
constant setbacks,the disappointments, and
the temporary defeats you will encounter on your journey.
You need to learn to deal with failure by realizing that for most people experience this before they reach success.
You want to develop the courage to treat failure as an opportunity to start all over again with
a greater understanding.
You will overcome the fear of failure by doing the things you fear over and over again,
and then by resolving to bend rather than break
when things don’t work out for you.
Face Your Fears with Courage
Start by listing all the fear situations in your life
that cause you stress or anxiety today.
Decide what the worst possible outcome of each of
these situations might be.
Resolve to accept the worst, should it occur, then take action to resolve each of those situations.
Be Willing To Make Mistakes
You need the courage to be willing to make mistakes and learn from them.
All peak performers continually make decisions,
make mistakes, learn from them, self-correct, and carry on.
Successful people are not those who necessarily
make the right decisions all the time,
but they make their decisions right.
If they make a mistake, they accept it and learn
as much as possible from it.
The more you fail and the more mistakes you make,
the smarter you become and the more likely it is that you will eventually achieve your goals.
Develop the Courage to Accept Complete
Responsibility for Your Life
“If it is to be it is up to me”… which means to take ownership for results.
You need the courage to refuse to make excuses or
to defend yourself.
You need the courage to say, over and over again,
“I am responsible!”
When something goes wrong, you focus on the
solution rather than the problem.
You ask, “What do we do from here?
What’s the next step? What is the solution?”
Then “You pick yourself up, dust yourself off and
start all over again.”
Persistence is the quality that will ultimately
guarantee your success.
Your willingness to persist in the face of every adversity
can be your greatest asset.
It can be the one factor that guarantees your success.
If you refuse to quit, you must ultimately succeed.
Just as in baseball, you won’t ultimately hit a
home run unless you keep on swinging.
Babe Ruth, had the most strike outs of any baseball player
Babe Ruth also had the most home runs of any baseball player.
No one was ever defeated until they accepted defeat as a reality.
No one can ever defeat you but yourself.
You are Courageous!!
