Enjoy Freedom that comes with Courage

Many of us hold back, sometimes unconsciously, on pursuing our callings and dreams–because of fear. We sometimes dwell on possible negative results like failure or embarrassment.

Coaching clients and seminar students often say they stay in their “comfort zones” too much because of “what people might think” if they tried something special.

Consider the people you admire most–they likely have tried, failed, and persisted to fulfill ideas in which they believe, even if others could see their flaws and failures. Follow their example.

Allow yourself to try and occasionally fall short. Just do your best, continue to improve your capacities, and enjoy the freedom that comes with courage.

Adapted from Suggestions for Successful Living: Positive Ideas for the 7 Areas of Life, Dr. David Dyson. Additional writing on developing ourselves in Professionalism Under Stress by Col. Stretch Dunn (USA Ret) and Dr. David Dyson.
