The third area of high performance is courage. This is referring to the courage to: come out of your comfort zone, be decisive with difficult decisions, take bold action, fully express yourself, and take risks.
Everyone has places in their lives they could have more courage.
People avoid taking action for three reasons and they're all fear based:
They're worried they may lose something. For example, they want to lose weight, but don't want to stop going out to eat or to Happy Hours with friends.
They're worried that something may be too hard. For example, they want to lose weight, but are afraid they won't be able to stick to a diet.
They're worried they'll go through the process of doing something and won't get their desired outcome. For example, they're afraid they will deprive themselves of foods they like and torture themselves at the gym, but not lose any weight.
Ask yourself if there are areas in your life that you are backing down from something or someone.
What's the worst thing that could happen if you take the action you've been suppressing? Is the answer really that bad?
What's the best thing that could happen? Focus on THAT and take action!
Being courageous will lead you to greater success, experience and happiness in the end. So, get out of your comfort zone and start enjoying the rewards of being courageous :)
