Are YOU Brave?

30572_The fearless are merely fearless. People who act in spite of their fear are truly BRAVE. – James A. LaFond-Lewis

Are you brave?  I don’t mean the rushing into the burning building type of brave.  I mean the everyday brave ~ acting in spite of your fear bravery.  The courage it takes to follow your dreams and to take baby steps on the path of the unknown.  Do you have the ability to stretch out of your comfort zone in order to reach for something that you want?  Can you find that Inner Hotshot who wants more in life?

Are YOU brave?

Did you answer yes?

Woo Hoo for you!  Give me some advice ~ what helps you to be brave?  Please, comment below with any suggestions you may have to help us along this journey of life!  I love how people are able to overcome so much in life!  What’s your secret weapon to help you abolish fear?  Have you a sword to banish worry, anxiety or failure?  Or a magic wand to swipe away doubt?

Did you answer no?

Do you want to be brave?  What’s holding you back?  Do you even know?  Why is fear keeping your happiness at bay?  Do you hold the fear and anxiety close to your heart?  Do you want to send fear packing so that you can live your life with courage and without fear?

  1. When I’m afraid I always ask what it is I believe that makes me scared. Then I ask myself what would I do if I didn’t believe that thought. Bit complicated, I know!

  2. I guess connecting with my heart..
    and the magic and mystery within..and how that leads to magical connections..like here :
    🙂
    I love the energy that comes thru in your posts. So encouraging. ♡L

  3. I always say it’s a fine line between brave and stupid, and I’m never sure which side I’m on. I do know that I never regret doing something as much as I regret missing an opportunity to do something.

  5. I try, when I stand at the cross-roads, to ask myself, “what is the worst that could happen, and I’m prepared to pay that cost?” Over the years, those answers have certainly changed. There are things I did in my 20s, that I wouldn’t be brave enough to do now (e.g., screaming at my boss, “Go ahead, make my day; lay me off; pay me to find a job working for someone other than you!”). Conversely, there are things I was afraid to do in my 20s, I’d like to believe I’m braver about now.

  6. I try to put it in the context that even if it doesn’t work out as planned I have learned a valuable lesson. We often learn more from our wrong turns than our right turns. Also, making the choice to move forward may lead to new and unforeseen benefits. Bravery, many times, is little more than the courage to take the first step, the willingness to fall down and get back up. Each of has within us the ability to move forward and succeed. The path of fear can lead to an uninspired (yet safe) life, the path of courage may get bumpy along the way, but remember to take one step at a time in a positive direction (and if you get lost, you can always turn around). Now put on a comfortable pair of shoes and set out on the path that you envision (and if you are not there yet, put on those shoes and open the door to peek at the wonder outside the door that awaits)
