Living bravely takes courage – having the ability to control fear and still take action. It’s a powerful phrase and more often than not used to describe big situations but what about quiet courage on a daily basis? When making decisions and implementing the necessary changes to enact the decisions, many times the actions don’t happen because of fear. What will people think? How will they react? What if I can’t do it? And one which may be surprising – “what if I can do it?” It takes courage and brave actions to make changes, follow through on your decisions to live a successful and fulfilling life. How many times have we heard – I meant to, I could have if I wanted to. Courage is needed for everyday small decisions as well as the big ones to take us a little closer to making a dream a reality and sometimes courage may just be saying ‘I have no clue how I am going to do this but I will figure it out’. Other times it may be the courage to grab your potential in both hands and let it take you to success.
Success is amazing but there are times when some know they probably could have it but just don’t take the steps to make it happen, that question of ‘what if I can, then what?’ It takes courage to move forward, to take responsibility for your potential, your success. It also takes a support system to help you along, to allow yourself ask for help and be helped. Many of us are great at helping others but fear asking for help from others in case it puts them out, makes you look less than or perhaps you just don’t know how to ask. People love being part of the support team for success and are more than willing to help others. Allowing others be part of your implementation plan for change and success can be just as rewarding as the success itself and in a lot of cases with these powerful support systems, relationships can make it happen not only sooner but be even greater.
Quiet daily courage to live bravely does lead to a more fulfilled and enriched life, it helps to live in the now, build powerful relationships and control fear so that living positively is at the forefront of your day. A friend of mine sent this picture to me from her gorgeous garden in South Africa, along with telling me of the decision she and her family have made to move back to Europe. A courageous decision, yes as they are going to start afresh in a new country, climate, home, schools, jobs and new friends. The quiet courage will be taking the daily actions of setting up a routine and reaching out to develop their new support system. The big decision tends to get the mention but the daily mundane tasks in a new country will take courage, resilience and patience as they work to make their move to Europe a success – their quiet courage to live bravely.
So how will you use your quiet but powerful courage to live bravely today?
