In life, everybody faces a lot of problems but it’s courage that keeps you going. The people who have the courage to face every set back in life are the ones who get successful in life.
You have enough courage when you fight for what you believe in. Courage is not genetic, it’s about how fast you can control your mind and give the ability to your heart to bear the pain without getting emotionally trapped.
Here are a few ways to be courageous:
- Fear and courage can coexist
A person who is coward can run from a battlefield but the brave man faces every challenge to the end even if he is a bit scared.
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear – Nelson Mandela
The difference between courage and cowardliness is the ability to act with disregard to fear and not the ability to suppress fear altogether.
The more you have the understanding about the fear the more courageous you will become.
- Don’t run from your fear
Most of the people want to live an easy life because they don’t have the courage to face the fears and failures and that’s why most people an average life and they don’t succeed in life.
If you want to grow and succeed in life then you have to face the fears and accept every challenge life has got for you. Once you give enough push to yourself to face the fear, you will find a way to conquer it.
The more you live your life with the fears around you, the more it will help you to be courageous and powerful.
- Educate yourself
Why we are discouraged either we have fear of failure or we lack the knowledge about that field you want to succeed.
If you give yourself enough time to improve and educate yourself. You will experience less fear in your life. So the more you lack the resources the more you have fear and the more you are prepared to face the fear, the less fear you will experience and obviously the more courageous you will become.
- Emotionally attached
The real freedom of a person is when he thinks he has nothing to lose. Such freedom can only come when you have reached the highest level of courage and self-awareness.
Never get attached to the things you have because nothing is things are not permanent but what remains is how you deal and move forward when you lose everything and that’ is the real courage.
To be successful in life you have to take risks. If you are a person who wants to be successful but are not willing to take the risks then it’s near to impossible that you can get success in life.
Every risk you take make you braver and more courageous. When you calculate the risks well, you will be able to take more risks without being hit by life very hard. Taking small risks will encourage to take bigger risks in life and that’s how you can make your life different than others and become successful in life.
A just and a brave man acts fearlessly and with explicitness; he does not shun, but the court, the scrutiny of mankind; he lives in the face of day, and the whole world confesses the clearness of his spirit and the rectitude of his conduct –
