“Do one thing every day that scares you.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
2015 is a Year of Courage. That’s my Fearless Forecast for myself.
Courage is a big, scary word. It takes courage to ask for courage. When you ask for courage, you are given the very things you fear.
“Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.” – Mark Twain
I ask for Courage anyway.
The Courage Chronicle is my story of how I’m going to chase my fears, look them in the eyes, and tell them to “sit”, “roll over” and “go, catch”. I hope that by writing about the journey to courage, I am able to spread a Culture of Courage to the willing readers. Imagine a world where we are not afraid of fear. Imagine the possibilities when fear does not hold us back. Imagine the breadth and length and height and depth of our comfort zone when we keep on pushing it further and further, taking control over our natural fear of the unknown. Imagine the dreams we can realize, the ideas we can conceive, the successes we can achieve when we free ourselves of the fears that have been paralyzing us for so long, limiting our belief and confidence.
Let’s do this! //brave face on//
