#Morning Motivation – Be Brave

October 30, 2023

Be brave. Not because you are not afraid but because you are. – Nelson Mandela

The only thing that stands between you and your dream is the will to try and the belief that it is actually possible. – Joel Brown

Fear is a natural emotion. It’s there to protect us from danger. 

But sometimes, fear can hold us back from doing things. 

It can keep us from taking risks and trying new things.

But the truth is, being fearless is a myth. 

Everyone feels fear. 

Even the most courageous people in the world feel fear. 

The difference is that they do not let fear stop them. 

They push through their fear and do what they need to do.

So if you are feeling afraid, do not let it stop you. 

Be brave. 

Take a deep breath and face your fear. 

You might be surprised at what you are capable of.

Here are a few tips:

Acknowledge your fear. The first step to overcoming fear is to acknowledge that it’s there. Don’t try to pretend it is not there or that it does not matter.

Talk to someone you trust. Talking about your fear can help you to understand it better and to feel less alone.

Make a plan. Once you know what you are afraid of, plan to face it. This move will help you to feel more in control and less scared.

Take it one step at a time. Don’t try to do too much too soon. Start by facing your fear in small ways and gradually work your way up.

Reward yourself. When you face your fear, reward yourself with something you enjoy. This reward will help you to associate facing it with positive experiences.

Remember, being brave doesn’t mean that you are not afraid. 

It means that you are willing to face your fear anyway. 

So do not let fear hold you back. 

Be brave and go after your dreams.

Courage is not the absence of fear but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid but he who conquers that fear. – Nelson Mandela

The only thing that can defeat fear is action. – George S. Patton

So what are you waiting for? 

Be brave and take that first step!
