Courage Advice

Courage to Try Something You want to in your life

Brought to you by Carolyn Burke, M.S.W., R.S.W.

There’s something that you want to do in your life that you are not doing. Why is that?

  • Often our thoughts and actions prevent us from moving forward. We’re
    fearful that somebody might say no to us or that we might fail – and we
    might fail and that’s ok
  • Those are learning experiences that we can build on
  • Finding the courage to do things you want and following through on
    these experiences can leave you feeling more fulfilled and successfulWhat can you do to move towards dreams or goals in your life?
  • Write a list and decide where you want to start – just by taking one
    small step in the direction that you want to go, you will notice that
    things start to shift and change
  • Things that prevent us from trying something that we want are fear,
    worry and the unknown. Move through forward and move through that and
    know that you can be successful for even trying.
  • What is the worst thing that can happen? Actually one of the worst
    things that can happen to us in our lives is regret for not at least
    exploring dreams or chances that we want to take in life.
  • It’s only important to explore your ideas, take a small step and see
    where it leads you. Don’t sell your house or pack everything up but do
    take a look at your dreams and see if there is something that just may
    be possible
  • The longest journey starts with the first step and the tallest building is built one brick at a time.
  • You can do it. Good luck~Taking Charge and being assertive in your lifeThis advice is general and should be viewed with the intent that this will not support every case. Carolyn advises based on a general experience. In terms of this particular clip and the topic which is ‘courage’ to try something, please make sure that it is something manageable and that you are not throwing caution to the wind. Explore your ideas, make lists and start seeing where it takes you. This is the point.

    Consider This…

    Often times we restrict ourselves and get caught up in our ‘comfortable’ patterns, even if they are not healthy. Having dreams or goals that take you outside of a comfort zone is a good thing and should be looked at as things we all need to do. Courage is taking the thought and putting some action behind it. Don’t try to get to the result right away.  Shift your patterns a little bit at a time. Follow your dreams in a responsible, committed way and see where you go.  Never let anyone tell you that you ‘can’t’ do something if you really feel you can. Good luck~
