Courage in LIFE

One of the main qualities in life is to follow your path with courage. You can never choose the easy way out when you want to lead the life of your dreams. This is an unavoidable truth.

Following your own path

You have to keep in mind that, if you want to reach your goals in life, you need to summon all your courage in order to overcome the obstacles that cross the path of those who are bold enough to get off the beaten track and follow their own path.

Admittedly, you can be sheltered from the main obstacles that may come cross the path of the bold ones if you merely follow the beaten track but life would not have the same taste, the one it should have. It would lack passion and spice!

Of course, those who lead their lives with courage have to face problems but these problems are hard to avoid anyway. Nobody can avoid them. What matters is that you find solutions to your problems.

Courage to take full advantage of life

Courage is not just about accomplishing feats that will be worth mentioning in history books, feats that will be known the world over. There are many courageous people in world, many more than you think. But no one will ever hear about them!

Since we often hear about those who accomplish great feats, whether these feats involve technology, sports, warriors, humanists, we get a wrong image of what courage is.

You can be courageous by resisting the things some try to impose on you in your daily life, by rejecting conventional thinking, by trying to build your life, even if it does not involve great feats. Everyone can do that in their own humble way.

Doing some self-analysis, not accepting your life if it does not satisfy you and trying to change it require a great deal of courage. Once it is part of your life, courage is everywhere in your endeavours!


First Step

first stepPeople often don’t act because they convince themselves their dream-life is inaccessible. And it is true that day-to-day problems can occupy much of your time and energy.

But if you really want to change something about your life, if you’re sincere, willing and generous, and what you want to accomplish won’t harm anyone in thought, word or deed, then opportunities are sure to present themselves to you at some point.

You’ll need to be vigilant, and take full advantage of those opportunities as they arise. They’re sure to change things, shake-up your routine, and bring you the security, coupled with joy, that will light up your life from now on.

If you achieve security, but don’t get any pleasure from it, you need to change your life-plan, and embark on a new direction.

You´ll need to seize the opportunities that really impact you, deep down inside, and not let yourself be deterred by the fact that you don’t know where you might end-up.

That’s precisely what generates the excitement that accompanies all action, since you don’t know where it will bring you. Unfortunately, people often hesitate to take that crucial first step.

I know you must have missed amazing opportunities for change because of your fear of not knowing what might happen to you, where it all might lead.

The principle is simple: you need to act and take the first critical step, whether it’s to cross the road, or alter your entire existence. Having the courage to take the first step is a determining factor in accomplishing both the smallest and the greatest exploits.

Don’t hesitate to act, both to cross the road, and to transform your life.

Both require the same basic sense of courage. Things may sometimes be difficult, but your efforts are sure to bring you constructive rewards.

Taking the first step strengthens your willpower, and the more you advance and take the second, third, fourth (and so on) steps, the less you’ll feel like going back, because from the moment you take that first step, your life will no longer be the same, and you’ll want to continue improving it even more.
