Such a great and important question…
How do we have MORE courage?
And what does having more courage do for us? Importantly, how does having more courage help to improve the quality of our lives?
When we are and feel courageous filled, we are more likely to take action, to be bold and have the strength to go forward and pursue our meaningful goals and dreams and purpose in life. We choose to act in spite of any self doubts or fears that might prevent us from achieving, and living our best life.
Think of or picture a time when you felt you were at your most courageous. What fears or insecurities did you successfully manage to breakthrough? What action did you take in spite of any fears and self doubts? And what was the pay off? How was your life improved because you decided to let your LION not mouse win the day?
How did summoning your greatness, the LION within you serve you? Next, how did your strength and courage to act, inspire you and those around you?
We may describe a person of courage to be:
c) Faith Filled
If you could summon more strength, your inner lion, what could you do from this place?
If you decided and persisted longer at something you care about, what could you achieve? With yet even more faith in God, in your abilities and talents and gifts and strengths what could you accomplish in life?
Let us be reminded that…
None of us are born with courage, we simply choose to generate and create courage and we can choose each and every single day to create more courage to take action in spite of our fears and doubts, to be more bold and courageous. To not hold back, hide out and play small like a mouse. Your playing small does not serve the world.
“Bravery is not the absence of fear, but the mastery of it” -John Berridge
So for Today… I challenge you, to choose to summon and stand in YOUR greatness into your most courageous filled being, to call forth your inner strength and LION. To decide to not let your fears and insecurities rule the day and rather to honor your strength.
Now from this place, how will you act? What will you do? What is possible for you?
What are some of things possible for you from this place, from your inner LION?
