You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. So I’m wondering what you’re missing out on?
Is there something you would do if you just had a little more courage on your side? Is anything springing to mind?
Perhaps you’re a bit nervous or possibly petrified?
If you had a dose of courage would you speak up? Would you dearly love to try something new? Think for yourself? Go somewhere different? Be someone different?
Not today? If not now when, and if not you then who?
It takes courage sometimes just to show up. Baby steps; inhale courage and exhale fear. Courage doesn’t exist without fear – there is no use for it.
Winston Churchill said, “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts”.
So where do we find this courage, this strength, bravery, valour and our bold self? We need to pluck up some spirit, confidence, nerve, guts and grit.
You already have it. It may be buried, hiding in an unlikely place. Take this minute to find it. Dust it off, be bold today.
Just a minute now.
