We all have courage inside us. It just doesn’t always come out when we want it to.

Whether we realize it or not, many of us create these comfortable bubbles for ourselves, which can prevent us from trying new things. 

Remember, courage and fearlessness are not the same thing. In fact, fear can be healthy and help protect us. 

Courage is all about believing in yourself enough to keep going (even when you’re scared.) 

Change Your Perspective

Trying new things can be scary. The fear of the unknown is real. The next time you catch yourself afraid to try something new, go ahead and write out two lists. 

One list will cover all things you think may go wrong. And the other will cover all the great things that may come. Listing out both good and bad outcomes can help prepare you. 

Identify Your Strengths 

Anything is possible if you put your mind to it. You are capable of so much more than you may think.

Writing out a list of your strengths and qualities you like about yourself can help remind you just how incredible you are. 

Welcome Your Failures

Making mistakes is a part of life, and is not a bad thing. Every single failure or setback is nothing more than a learning experience.

It’s not about how many times you fall. It’s about how many times you get back up. 

Let your failures be a driving force in new opportunities and positive change!

Step Outside Your Comfort Zone

Have you ever said no to something you really wanted to do out of fear? Some things in life are scary and that’s okay. 

Sometimes the fear of what may or may not happen is actually scarier than the event itself. 

You have what it takes to become comfortable with becoming uncomfortable. If you’ve made it this far, you are already on the right track.

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” ― Winston S. Churchill
