Have you ever watched someone jump from a 45 foot cliff? How about witness firefighters going into a burning building? Read about a couple sailing across an ocean? When you see these things do you ever wonder how they can be so fearless?
If so just remember that courage is not the lack of fear, but instead it is overcoming fear and doing the task at hand. Whether it is something for fun like jumping or to save a live.
Remember fear is natural and health. But once you recognize your fear you can start to understand it and then you can overcome it.
Coming from someone who has done all three of these things I can tell you that I was nowhere near a state of fearlessness!!!! I simply saw the fear as an obstacle mounted by the unknown and did not want that to stop me.
I tell you these things because there is nothing special about me and you can easily do whatever you want if you don’t let fear stop you. I want to inspire you to try new and scary things.
So, what are you going to be courageous about today?
