Doing something even though it scares you.
Whether it’s doing a sky dive from 15000 feet, public speaking, fighting an illness or quitting your day job to do something that you truly love.
Courage is being bigger than your problems, your circumstances, other people’s potential criticisms or even YOU at the present moment.
To have the fear but to carry on regardless.
So what can overcome the fear?
Make whatever you want to accomplish bigger than your fear.
Acknowledge the fear instead of suppressing it.
Replacing the scary feeling with an excited feeling – they are the flip side of the same coin.
To understand that staying in your comfort zone prevents you from learning and growing. To learn to be comfortable in being uncomfortable is the first step of expanding your experiences and your world.
Being surrounded by people that will encourage you to step into what you want to be, do, have.
And when you have the courage to do something that scares you, and you do it?
A sense of achievement. You have grown. A different perspective. A bigger world.
Because if you carry on doing what you have been doing, you will get what you have now.
If you want to have different results, you have to do something different.
What is courage? Courage is a love affair with the unknown -Osho
