Do you know the secret to living a courageous life? And why is it so important anyway?
Being courageous enables you to do the thing that scares you and for many, that empowers them into living the life they actually WANT.
Being the courageous sort can become a way of life when your mindset shifts. Shifting your mind from passive to active and from scared to brave happens one small decision at a time. Then, over the course of time these small decisions lead to a wondrous outcome you may not have thought possible.
The simple secret to unlock courage and build a brave mindset is - doing the next right thing. In nearly every case asking yourself what the next right thing to do is and then doing the next right thing will create a momentum that leads to any desired outcome.
You may not know everything it will take to achieve a goal or tackle a fear. That’s ok. Simply ask yourself what the next right thing to do is. Once you’ve determined that, take action. Once you’re done, ask yourself that same question over and over and take the next appropriate action.
Hey, just start small and keep your eyes on the prize.
When you ask yourself what the next right thing to do is, then all you have to focus on is the next step. Keeping your full attention on the next right step is less nerve-racking and overwhelming than thinking about the entire issue. Just start small and keep your mind focused on the desired outcome.
By keeping your focus narrow and only considering the next move you can avoid anxiety about the future and the unknown. The good news is each time you do the next right thing you learn from it. You gain experience, knowledge, or something that will help make the next step easier.
Building a courageous (or brave) mindset happens one decision at a time.
Ultimately, anyone can become more courageous when they break overwhelming things down into small actionable steps.
Facing fears, taking risks, and becoming courageous happens one small decision at a time.
Over time, the practice of choosing the next right thing will become common and easier to do and before long, taking bold and courageous action will be normal and much easier.
