How do you want to live your life?

Be couageous

on December 13, 2012

Another important personal asset that we need to armed with as we head into 2013 is personal courage. Without it we will be unable to even begin the first step let alone reach the goals that we have set for ourselves.

Courage enables us to see who we really are, identify our strengths and weaknesses so that we can have an accurate assessment of how realistic our goals are and how to best go about achieving it. I have chosen to place some emphasis on this personal characteristic because it is often overlooked by many. If you consider this properly, you will realize that everything decision you make depends on how courageous you feel at that given time.

Say for example, someone cuts into the queue in front of you, do you say something or you just make up an excuse in your head? Taking up a new job requires courage as do saying yes when the love of your life proposes to you.  Having courage means saying yes to an exciting new future or saying no when someone oversteps your boundary. But most importantly, it is the ability to make the best decision for you or the people you care about.

Therefore I urge this of you, know your strengths and weaknesses, stand firm for what you believe in. Then find the courage that resides within you to follow through with decisions that best serves you. I have said this many times and I will say this again, be strong, be you and nobody else. Life is not meant to be easy,  but at least you know that you have chosen to live life your way!
