Courage

• "It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly... who knows the great devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who have known neither victory nor defeat." ---TEDDY ROOSEVELT.

• COURAGE is the ONLY WAY OUT of problems with anxiety, victimization, impulsivity, addictions and lack of confidence.

Interestingly, the film, "Saving Private Ryan" defines COURAGE very succinctly: "Do the Right Thing".

Consider that knowing what "the Right Thing" to do is, comes from your TWO INNER Decision-making resources, CONSCIENCE and INTUITION.

COURAGE then, is not bravery, not fearlessness or any other thing we lack or acquire—it is a DECISION!

We have no excuses. COURAGE is a DECISION, and if we are alive, we are capable of decisions, by definition.

ANXIETY

• COURAGE is a CONSTRUCTIVE way of thinking before acting, done in a WIN/WIN way that sees the world as a place of ABUNDANCE.

• Interestingly, we are most ALONE in the world when we do COURAGE, but after the moment we do it, the WHOLE WORLD wants to join us.

• There is only ONE scenario when you should never do COURAGE—when there is a THREAT on your LIFE! To do so is FOOLHARDY, not brave. Even soldiers at war are specifically trained NOT TO DIE in boot camp.

• But for all other things in life that cause anxiety, COURAGE is always available to you!

Doing Courage Leads To Confidence 100% Of The Time

When you do Courage, you have a 100% guarantee of reaping an EQUAL amount of CONFIDENCE in ratio with the amount of Courage put in.

But we have more and less Confidence about SPECIFIC fears. If you list those fears then you know the most logical targets for your COURAGE - things to make GOALS of.

If I feared public speaking, I could do Impulsivity and run away from speeches, OR I could give in to them as a victim and say, "Gee, I'm not too good at this but I hope you like me." Neither of those will get me more confident.

No. If I do COURAGE—"do the right thing"—then I would give 100 speeches to get some skill and would feel more CONFIDENT about it as a result. It takes COURAGE to stand up in front of folks.
