Courage

17 Jan

There are a lot of unknowns in life. We don’t know what tomorrow will bring, we don’t know how people will react, we don’t know when things will change, and sometimes we don’t know what to do. We don’t have access to all the facts all the time and must work with what we know at every given moment. It can be hard to figure out our next steps when we aren’t sure what will happen and must exercise courage to push ahead despite our doubts. Some people are naturally courageous and nothing seems to affect their ability to move forward, no matter what happens. Others of us may struggle with insecurity and feel more cautious about proceeding. We all have enough courage inside us to do whatever we want to do, but we must be confident enough to reach deep and pull it forward. Stepping into the unknown can be terrifying and if our lives suddenly change and everything is different, we may need time to process what’s happening before we can move forward. Serious changes such as a sudden breakup, the death of someone close, the loss of a job, or other personal events may upend our confidence and stop us in our tracks. If we’ve never traveled the road ahead, we don’t know what it holds or where it will take us. But foreign territory is only foreign until we make it ours. We have everything we need to face anything we must. We can trust ourselves to succeed and find our way forward in every situation. Relying on our personal courage and wisdom, we can step forward sure we’ll prevail.

Nobody likes to go through hard times. We all want lives filled with ease and happiness, and to sail through without fracture or failure. Although it’s nice to dream about a life like that, it has no basis in fact or reality. Life brings challenges and when we’re struggling it may be hard to find any blessings in what we’re going through. But each problem teaches us something new, and we learn to be brave by facing failure. When things go wrong and we have to stand against the wind, we increase our courage and temerity. We become bold when we push against adversity and gain strength as we step forward.

When we’re facing something extremely difficult, we may believe we can’t survive it. We may not think we have enough courage or stamina to get through and find the answers we need to move forward. But we are stronger and more capable than we may realize and once we determine we will prevail, nothing can keep us from success. We can overcome any problem or complication before us. Everything we need is inside us already and we can step forward with courage and confidence to find our way.

Today, if you’re facing a very difficult challenge and don’t believe you can get through, trust yourself. You already have everything you need to prevail. You are wise and powerful, and every answer is there for you. Be strong and have courage. Every step will take you closer to your goal. Nothing is out of reach and you will succeed.
