DG about courage

“Courage is key to live your greatest life”

Courage is critical to you unleashing your mind and achieving your potential. It is courage you need to overcome a fear, to step outside your comfort zone, to keep moving, to be patient, to keep practising, trusting and investing.

Courage is the most important emotion you need to learn to control in your life. It does not matter if you are still at school, work in one of the biggest companies in the word, are an Olympian or a parent.

When acting from courage you’re taking the hard road (Pathway 1). You’re taking action that requires courage, despite the risk of failing, judgements, rejection or upsetting others, and despite fears and doubts. It is also taking the hard road in the face of potential success.

Taking the Pathway of Courage means Acting from Courage – which could result in desired outcome, or not. It is Expressing your True Self, which results in people living their greatest lives.
