A Quick Tip for When You Can’t Find the Courage Needed…

Here’s a quick tip I’ve had to use many times in life…

When I can’t find the courage to do the thing I know I need to do…

Instead of trying to muster the courage…

I often need to renew or grow my passion for the thing that needs doing…

It’s a bigger picture approach…

Dave Ramsey says that if you want to get out of debt that you have to “Get angry about it...”

That’s the same idea here…

Emotions often fuel courage…

Grow your passion…grow your courage…

As an example, if you need to address a difficult employee situation, but don’t have the courage…fall more in love with the vision of the organization and it’s effectiveness, and you’ll find courage to have the hard conversation…

You take risks to achieve those things for which you are most passionate…

Think of it this way…if your child was in danger, you’d find the courage to save him or her, regardless of the risks involved…

Fall more in love with what you hope to accomplish and you’ll find more courage…

Are you in a situation now that is requiring more courage? I’d love to hear your story…

  1. Situations that is requiring more courage! When I face such situations, I leave the consequence to the Lord and I will do my level best without worrying about my results. My reasoning and discernment comes to nought under such situations.

    ( This may sound childish) At times, head-in-the-sand philosophy have also worked for me.

  2. I've been dealing with some difficult employee situations with a supervisor who just doesn't "get it". It's review time and need the courage and wisdom to honestly review him. Ugh!

  3. Good thoughts. I usually have to motivate myself with emotions. Another emotion that fuels me is fear. It sounds bad, but it works. If I fear my idea becoming something I do not want, or losing something I want, it sure motivates me to action.

  4. Man Ron, you hit me hard today. Since the first of the year, I (and the church community) have been dealing with something that takes courage. I am not at liberty right now to make it public but hope to be able to do so soon. I also have someone who recently has called into question my leadership on issues that he has no knowledge of because he is not in leadership. It takes courage not to blow his doors off. :)
