Confidence? Be courageous instead!

You won’t always feel confident.

What?!

You can’t be serious!

What about all them books?

It’s true.

Confidence can be improved for ourselves.

We often wait until we feel confident before we do things though.

We have to “build ourselves up.”

Successful people do what they need to do, whether they feel like it or not.

Instead of waiting for confidence, be courageous instead.

Courage means taking action despite the fear you feel.

You won’t always feel confident, but focus on being courageous.

When you look back after taking courageous action, you’ll appreciate all you’ve learned along the way.

I had the opportunity to do this this week. I could’ve stopped and run from something that shook my confidence.

Instead I focused on being courageous. I made sense of it in my head differently and focused on the learning opportunity.

I got to learn about myself during this thinking time.

It works – try it!
