Self-Esteem and Leadership: Courage Is a Habit

Self-esteem and leadership go hand-in-hand. The good news is that courage can be cultivated and become a habit.

Today I have great news for you. We've talked a little about the relationship between courage and self-confidence. One aspect of that was that we can use courage and doing things that scare us a little to boost our feeling of self-worth and confidence. In other words, we can increase self-confidence by being courageous or doing something that takes a little courage more often.


Why is this such great news? Because courage is a habit. It's something that's completely in our control and a habit we can cultivate. All it takes is a little awareness and the drive to make it happen. We just need to get the ball rolling for a little while. Today is a great time to do that. If you can take small steps towards courage every single day for the remainder of this challenge, you'll be well on your way to creating this new positive habit.


It doesn't have to be anything big. Small acts of courage will work just fine to build this habit. Remember that as you take each next step your self-confidence will increase.  That bravery will make it easier to take another courageous move. Remember, it will become easier with each day as you practice this new habit.


You may be wondering how you can start to cultivate this new habit. Habits take practice so try not to let 24 hours go by without doing something that scares you.


We're creatures of habit and comfort and we don't like venture outside of our comfort zone unless we're forced to. To make courage a habit, you have to actively look for daily opportunities to practice. What can you do to make that happen?


Self-esteem and leadership:
MAKE A LIST


Sit down right now and start making a list of things you can do to be courageous. Start by thinking of things that scare you or challenge you. Keep adding to this list as you go along. Refer back to it often and use the items on the list to keep you moving forward.


Self-esteem and leadership:
LOOK FOR OPPORTUNITIES TO BE COURAGEOUS

Start paying attention as you go about your busy day. Get in the habit of not shying away from challenges but embracing them and doing things anyway. You're probably encountering a lot more challenges throughout your day than you realize.


Self esteem and leadership:
MAKE FRIENDS WHO WILL CHALLENGE YOU

Step out of your comfort zone and make friends, or spend time with people who will challenge you. You can also encourage your loved ones to help you face your fears and step out of your area of comfort on a more regular basis. Ask for their assistance to help you fight the fear.


Self-esteem and leadership:
GET A COACH

Last but not least, you can get a coach. Find someone that can help you in the area you need help in.  In life, business, sports or anything else you can think of, coaches are great at forcing you to test your limits, face your fears and help you to find your inner courage.

Your attempt may fail but never fail to make an attempt!

As my friend was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from the ropes they were tied to but for some reason, they did not. My friend saw a trainer nearby and asked why these beautiful, magnificent animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away.

“Well,” he said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size of rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.” My friend was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?

How many of us are being held back by old, outdated beliefs that no longer serve us? How many of us have avoided trying something new because of a limiting belief? Worse, how many of us are being held back by someone else’s limiting beliefs?

Whatever you can conceive and believe, you can achieve!
CHOOSE not to accept the false boundaries and limitations created by the past.
