Are you clear about where you are going? About what you want? (In case you missed it, that was yesterday’s #1 C of Success.)
The definition, as found in my almost ancient Webster’s Universal Unabridged Dictionary, which was a gift from my dad in the 1980’s, is as follows: “1. the attitude or response of facing and dealing with anything recognized as dangerous, difficult, or painful, instead of withdrawing from it; the quality of being fearless or brave; valor; pluck.”
No matter who you are, what you do or where you live, at some point in your life, you have been courageous. You may not even have recognized it, but I know you’ve acted courageously. You faced circumstances or events that were “dangerous, difficult or painful” and you persevered. It may not have been easy or accomplished gracefully. You might have even had second thoughts about what you could-a, would-a, should’ve done, BUT — you got through it. That’s COURAGE!
If making your dreams a reality, growing a prosperous business and/or living the life you truly want is something that’s important to you, your courage — your “attitude or response of facing and dealing with anything recognized as dangerous, difficult, or painful, instead of withdrawing from it” — will come in handy.
TODAY’S TIP: Identify a place or circumstance in your business or your life right now that is dangerous, scary, difficult or painful and is keeping you from growing a prosperous, successful business or living the life that you’ve been dreaming of and face it courageously. Have a plucky Wednesday!
