Good Morning tribeeeeeeeeee!!!. It’s been said we all have some dose of fear in us but it takes a whole lot of courage to suppress our fears. Let’s talk about being courageous TODAY. Tribe, please be courageous to live a life that you deserve even if it requires you to set boundaries. It’s really worth it.
When something difficult challenges you, what do you do? Do you give in to fear or face your fear by approaching it with bold steps?. Courage is the quality of the mind that allows you to face the situation in spite of fear. To live a courageous life is to choose to live past fear for the desired life you deserve. Many people out there have great ideas and goals in life but there’s always one thing that gets in their way from birthing those ideas to reality, fear stops them. Many have gone 6ft down the ground without sharing that brilliant ideas in their mind that could have transformed the world or serve as a push to someone, that’s the power of fear. Fear is part of us but don’t ever let it have its grip on you. No!!!
In our everyday life, we are faced with choices to make. Hence, we either move in courage or shrink back in fear. Be aware that, living a courageous life is the best way to attain success in life. Hence, making the choice to live courageously is not “one and done” thing but a daily decision to choose courage amidst fear. What areas of your life is God asking you to be courageous? Is it at home, office, or school?. Are you in debt or bedridden with a sickness that getting out of bed scares you to bone?. Good news friend! Ask the Lord to give you wisdom and strength to know how to live courageously in every day of your life.
These 5 tips will help you find the courage you need to achieve success in life.
1. ADMIT YOUR FEARS: There is a saying that “courage is not the absence of fear but the mastery of fear”. To live a courageous life, it’s a must to admit it and that is the only way you can subdue it by gaining mastery over it. Accepting your fears gives you the power to overcome fear.
- CREATE A TRIBE: To live a courageous life, its important to be surrounded by like-minded people who are also making a conscious effort to be courageous. During my high school days, We had this ritual that every student must give a speech on the assembly ground. I’d prayed so hard that my name will never be mentioned. Alas, my name was called and I could feel my heart skipping some beat. I was really scared to face the crowd but I had a small circle of friends that helped me prepare well. That fateful day, I mounted the podium and fear was written all over me, Suddenly, I got hold of myself and I felt as though I was addressing my friends instead of some crowd looking straight into their eyes and luckily for me, they returned my gaze. That day was like the best day of my life. My speech was the first to be posted on our school notice board. Of course, I gained more popularity. Lol. Creating communities gives you the support to face challenges. Ben Carson’s greatest tribe was His mother, she believed in him even more than he ever believed in himself. Do you have a tribe that can help bring out the best in you? If not, change them. If yes, kudos to you. Having the right set of people makes you a step closer to success.
3.PRACTICE POSITIVE AFFIRMATION: We’ve agreed that every human has some bit of fears in them and we can be in charge regardless. When fear pops up, remind yourself that you’ve been there before and have triumphed. Remind yourself of your past victories and how you conquered your fear. Put the power of your visualization to work and be positive that if you could achieve it then, you can do it again.
4.PRACTICE KINDNESS: Fear makes us feel we are not enough and inadequate to do anything well. That’s a lie! You know that, right? .when this happens, be kind to yourself and feel good about yourself that you are enough and more than capable to get anything done. Release your fear thought and refocus your effort on what does matters most.5. RECOGNIZE YOUR GOALS: What you know or desire to achieve helps you to do things that align with your goals. Knowing and living by your life goals gives you the confidence to say no to anything that threatens your goals. Friend, To overcome fear, recognize what drives you, know your values, and befriend your goal. You can never miss it in life and yes, fear will be faraway from you. A courageous life is worth living for because there is no gain being a slave to fear. Fear debars you from spreading out your wings. When you live a courageous life, It simply means you are choosing to enter the unknown rather than letting fear hold you down. If you are still choosing fear,this is for you. “Be strong. Take courage. Don’t be intimidated. Don’t give them a second thought because your God is striding ahead of you. He is right there with you”. Get up now and dust fears off you while you pursue a meaningful life of courage. Be courageous, Friend.
