The Courageous Are Not Fearless
Posted on March 8, 2023
Courage is not about being completely fearless.
It’s about feeling fear and moving forward anyway.
You’re never going to feel 100% ready. That moment will never arrive.
You will never reach a place where you feel completely comfortable as the planets and stars align.
The perfect moment will never arrive.
So instead, begin.
Begin your journey wherever you are. This moment is as good as any.
The thing you don’t want to run into is spending an entire lifetime waiting for that perfect moment and to be stuck idling in place. If you’ve found yourself delaying for days, years or decades, begin now.
The important part is that you actually start. Then, you can learn from all that procrastination.
Every step you take is new. You’re different. Life is different.
Everything around you has shifted and changed.
No matter how “the same” things seem, they are completely and entirely different. Everything, in every moment, is coming and going.
Don’t allow your mind to trick you into thinking that you’re the exact same person as you used to be. Even if you’ve “stalled” you’ve still changed.
There will come a point in your life when you’re going to be able to look at the “negative” experience and gain a tremendous amount of wisdom, compassion and insight from them.
However the only way you get to that point is by getting out of your own way, dropping all of the judgement and moving forward with a perspective rooted in love.
When you can do that, everything will rapidly shift for you.
