FINDING YOUR COURAGE WITHIN – YOUR UNSPOKEN SUPERPOWER
DO YOU HAVE IT? DO YOU WANT IT?
COURAGE IS PUSHING YOUR COMFORT ZONES and THE WILLINGNESS TO TRY AGAIN
Let me start with this, SH*T will not always work, that is ok BUT living a small life you don’t LOVE is not. U GOT THIS!
When you think of courage, maybe you think of people in the military, or people going to the moon. Or maybe you think of people battling disease or someone fighting for the rights of kids or animals. Maybe for you, it is saying Hi to a stranger, asking someone out or even giving a speech in front of a room full of people.
Courage comes in all shapes, forms, and definitions from person to person. Sometimes courage is getting it wrong and not losing the excitement that made you try it in the first place. Courage is the willingness to try again. Knowing that shit will hit the fan but willing to overcome what is thrown at you. We all know everything doesn’t always go as planned…lol (understatement, am I right?)
COURAGE IN FAILING
P.S Here, this is 100% ok and awesome actually! Failing means you are trying new things; you are pushing from your comfort zone! If you aren’t failing you aren’t trying anything new, who wants to repeat the same day over and over. STOP LIVING ON REPEAT! For me, that would mean I was failing. We were designed to learn and grow and isn’t this what makes us different! Oh, and I can tell you from personal experience it will be upsetting to “fail” until you create a new mindset around this. Failing was a bad word for me when I was growing up, (other people’s perception of a word) As I ventured out on my own journey of being an entrepreneur and completely changing my mindset about a lot of things. I have changed many meanings to words I use to consider “BAD”. The words only have the power you give them. I now think it of a failure as an incredible opportunity to learn and that gets me all excited. It went from being a terrible word to me to being wonderful. When people say I failed I usually say, ‘that’s awesome, good for you, it means you are doing something new and that in itself totally ROCKS”!
If you have always wanted to try something or dream of doing something new, you must start somewhere. That somewhere is a place called COURAGE. If you do not try, then isn’t that failing. You deserve to create a life you love. Don’t hold yourself back. I am finding more and more that we do this to ourselves. We are our worst critics and tend to hold ourselves back (its wired in our minds but you can rewire yourself) how wild is that!
You have to change your mindset. Courage is taking a chance, taking one step forward and willing to not succeed but trying again anyhow. I know you have heard this quote by Henry Ford – “Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently”. If you fail the first time, this is not the end, it creates a new beginning and a learning tool of what not to do in the future. Success may not show up the way you planned, but it will show up sooner or later as long as you keep working hard and remember the reason you started. Remember WHY it was important to you, that is what will keep you going.
When you do fail and you will see you survived, you will be ok, it will only push you forward all the more. If everyone who ever succeeded at anything stopped trying after the first few rounds, then we would not have half the achievements and blessing we have in life now. TRUTH!
FAIL FORWARD AS THEY SAY!
IF AT FIRST YOU DON’T SUCCEED (that’s 100% ok)
There is an old saying that if at first, you don’t succeed, try and try again. Courage is the willingness to try and keep trying over and over again until you find the outcome you wanted or an even better one. You have the strength in you, at times we let our own limiting beliefs take over, learn to become aware of this and change that! YOU are in charge here. I have been doing more mindset practice and training myself to recognize that voice in my head when it starts to sway to the negative side of the tracks. Rewiring my old habits to new healthy, positive ones. IT IS FREAKIN LIFE CHANGING! Imagine living a life where you are nice to yourself and go one step further and encourage yourself, be your own cheerleader WOW right! YOU CAN, I can help if you need a starting place.
And, the right way to find success is to keep going no matter how many times you get knocked down (I get knocked down but get back up again - thank you Tubthumping by Chumbawamba for sticking in my head as I write this, you are welcome...lol) until you figure out what does work.
U GOT THIS! U ARE A BADASS SUPERWOMAN!
Courage is the willingness and Shows up Differently for everyone.
Sometimes, courage is not what you think it is either. Sometimes courage is asking for help. Many of us have trouble asking for help, but real courage shows up when you swallow your pride and ask for help. I have met so many awesome, inspiring people in the last couple of years and I think this is a key to success. When you start on something new, you think YOU need to do it alone. YOU DON’T. It is awesome to grow and learn with others. Impacting, empowering and building a community is the path to success.
More often than not, it takes a whole lot more courage to ask for help than it does to go it alone.
ABSENCE OF FEAR
Courage also does not mean an absence of fear. It means you have fear but that you turn and face your fear and act in spite of it. Yesss, new shit is scary, breath, feel it and do it anyway! U GOT THIS! Mindset shifting from “new shit scary” to “new shit brings opportunities”.
When you face something you are afraid of, then that only guarantees you future success when it comes to facing something else. You will gain the extra confidence and the strength to know you can get through the next thing. Starting new habits and shifting mindset is so difficult. But you can do it! It is making small changes, creating habits and new practices. If you need help with where to start, Message us or visit our website for more info at www.ugotthis1life.com.
U GOT THIS 1 LIFE, what are you doing with it? Are you living the life you love? If not, then WHY aren’t you?
YOU are a BADASS, sometimes we forget that along the way but starting with small take action step will get you one step closer to creating a life you love.
