Courage - Required for Growth

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.” - Nelson Mandela Courage is required to achieve abundant living and leadership. Even in these uncertain times we can find certainty through courage to live abundantly. Courage to overcome fear. Courage to manage risks and still move forward. Courage to not let anything stop forward momentum and progress. The reality is that courage is available to everyone who will decide to be courageous and be determined to never give up. To do nothing, courage is not required. Perhaps that is why most people never invest in themselves. They willingly spend their hard-earned money on comforts rather than investing in themselves and stretching outside their comfort zone. They don’t seek to grow but rather just drift along accepting mediocrity. They accept crumbs that fall from the table when the feast above is just within their reach. They either don’t have the desire or courage to reach for it. If only they would recognize their potential. Are you among the many, or the few who have the desire and courage to grow to their potential? Anais Nin said, “Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.” If you want your life to expand so you can live abundantly it is your choice. You can decide with courage to face your fears and step out of your comfort zone. Decide to invest in yourself and your personal growth. As you expand yourself, your life will expand. Just wishing things were better will get you nowhere. To say “I should do this” or “I should do that” will leave you stuck in a rut. Tony Robins says we get our ‘musts’ not our ‘shoulds’. Decide to make your personal growth a MUST and make it happen. Smokey the bear used to say, “Only you can prevent forest fires.” I say, only you can decide to be courageous, face your fears, and design your destiny. I aspire to help others live abundantly and continuously improve. If I can help you achieve your potential, please reach out to me today!
