“Finding courage begins with a belief of its existence in our heart.” #bgdtcoaching.
Finding courage to do whatever it is we want to undertake does not have to be an epic task. On occasions thinking about the benefits awaiting us once we have completed the assignment is sufficient to kick start us into action.
Sometimes, however, the process of finding courage may occur only after we have dug deep for it. Facing a challenge outside our everyday experience can cause all sorts of doubts, fears and preoccupations to first arise. Only after these are out in the open courage presents itself.
Yet finding courage begins with a belief of its existence in our heart. Having gotten to where we are now surely means we have had to deal with all sorts of testing situations already, and coped. Knowing this, we can trust we have the resources to handle anything life now puts before us.
Finding courage to reach our objectives can be achieved by recalling a simple fact: everything we are successfully doing today started out as items outside of our comfort zone. It is easy to forget we were once beginners in certain fields. Finding courage to remember this could take away some of the stress associated with walking the path towards our goal right now.
If in these days you are looking for courage, let me wish you the best of luck. Believing in the potential of all, including you, I am confident your search will bring results. In any case, if you’d like to talk through the issue of finding courage, in the format of a coaching conversation via Skype or on the phone, please let me know.
For now, thanks for reading this ‘Finding courage‘ blog post today.
