Are you courageous? If you are like most people I know, you will tell me you are not. “Not me,” you will say, “I am too afraid to be courageous.”
I would remind you that if you are afraid, you are half-way to courage. The only element missing is acting.
[tweetthis]Courage is not “action without fear.” It is “acting in spite of fear.”[/tweetthis]
If you do something and are not at all fearful, then that is just doing something (and likely not anything particularly important).
But if you are feeling fear, and you choose to take action anyway, then you have acted courageously. More than that, you are probably doing something important.
Too often, we use fear as an “avoidance indicator.” Really, it is an “importance indicator.” What is most important to you likely exists just on the other side of your fears. Act in that direction. Be courageous.
