Bravo to everyone who conquered their fear and worked out their courage muscle in January. What a way to kick off the Year of Courage.
Personally, I conquered my own social fears by putting my work out there. I posted my photos, worked on this blog and shared about my goals this year. The various feedback I got last month was the validation I needed — I actually have a shot at this. I cannot give up on my dream just yet. I learned that sticking my neck out is how I’m going to make progress (like the turtle!).
Last month, the exercise I set to stretch those Courage muscles is to try something new or out of the comfort zone. I failed to do this because of health issues, but not giving up. I was happy to hear from one particular blogger who successfully completed this challenge.
I am very grateful (and motivated) by your stories of courage. Thank you for sharing and for taking on the challenge. The story that inspired me the most was by:
Her story of courageously putting herself out there was all the more inspirational because it led to a success. She submitted her story to a website she follows, and it was received well. Way to go! And she didn’t stop there. Find more about it in her post.
Are you inspired now to move this forward?
The Courage Challenge for February is DARE TO ASK.
Dare to ask. For help. For feedback on your work. For a raise or a promotion. For an opportunity. For advice. For anything that you are intimidated to ask. The goal of the challenge is to conquer the fear of rejection, to disable the belief that we don’t deserve that much.
Do this challenge every day, every week, whichever frequency works for you. Do share in the Comments, or pingback, about your experience. Press on!
