As I have stated before, every day each of us performs acts of courage, no matter how minute or massive those acts are to us. It happens every day! I believe courage is an innate characteristic each of shares. “For God has not given us a spirit of fear”; it is important to remember that God bestowed each of us with a courageous spirit!
COURAGE…..is all that is needed to take the first, or tenth, or one hundredth step toward whatever it is that you want. When it is lacking, it is the thing that, most of the time, holds us back from getting after that which we know we should.
As I currently deal with my own set of wants, and quite honestly, lack the courage to get after them right now, I’m pondering the advice I have passed on to others in this same situation. A single step has to be made to start any journey.
Even as I sit to write this blog post about my lack of courage, and contemplate what my first step should be…I can feel my COURAGE ball starting to build up speed and gain momentum. Sometimes acknowledgement is a powerful accelerator.
So what lesson have I learned through this exercise? It is clear – Do not let your lack of courage keep you from chasing, or pursuing, or achieving, or declaring whatever it is God has put in your spirit. It’s all yours…..you just have to muster up the courage to go get it.
Take Action: If you are stalled in getting after your dreams – Acknowledge it, grab your courage ball, create a plan of action, and start the ball rolling. It’s time you bowl a STRIKE!
Leadership on the GO…..It’s O.N!
