What is courage?
The definition of courage is the ability to do something that frightens one and or strength in the face of pain or grief.
Having courage is a game changer. Courage can be the difference of you succeeding and failing in whatever goal it is you’re trying to achieve.
3 ways to Increase you’re Courage:
Figure out exactly what it is that you are discouraged in. Name and describe what your phobias you have and set out to overcome them. You must face your fears in order to overcome them. Muster up the courage to name your phobias and work through the fear they generate. The result will be that you may just move to being uncomfortable with whatever you’re currently discouraged in, but you can function as a rational human through discomfort.
Do not run away from tough emotions when they come up. It is common for people to shove tough emotions down when they come up and they never deal with the source of the emotion. Some people are quite afraid to know what is in their core and the result of that are them never knowing how to process their emotions and figure out who they are. By not standing up to your fears and tough emotions you won’t be able to make meaningful decisions about your life.
Stand up for what you believe in whether it is hard for you or not. It is really easy to stand up for what’s right when everyone else already doing it. It is way tougher to be the first person to stand up for something or to be part of a small group who are going against the popular opinion and or demand.
Continue to do these practices till you feel comfortable with approaching any situations with no fear and actually can encourage others not to be discourage in their path through life.
Note: Remember, there is always a positive outcome when you go into a situation with courage.
