Be Bold, Brave and Strong (1 min)

Begin, to be bold, and venture to be wise.
Horace

Everyone admires the bold, courageous and daring; no one honors the faint- hearted, shy and timid. Look around at what others have done and what you can also do. Everyone is afraid. The strong act in spite of the fear. The weak cower because of the fear. Timidity breeds doubt and hesitation that not only weaken but can be dangerous. The coward dies a thousand deaths.
There is a formula for personal development. It is the same formula for everyone.
You must study. You must plan. You must practice. You must be tested. Some will shrink simply facing the task. Some will do the minimum and pass. Some will cut corners and pass. Instead, you must boldly welcome the challenge of honestly meeting the standards. Then and only then will you feel the true pride of accomplishment.
Make a personal decision to do what it will take to succeed. These principles are known to many but lived by few. Most people know what they should be doing.
They lack the will or the self-confidence to test themselves physically and mentally by starting a business, making an investment or establishing a friendship. This is not the independent you. You are a person of action.

Keep going and the chances are you will stumble on something, perhaps when you are least expecting it. I never heard of anyone stumbling on something sitting down._ Charles Kettering

What action step do you think one can take to being bold and brave? And is courage and bravery the same?

Think Positive, Think Different.

  1. Great advice.
    But how are you brave if you are afraid of everything? How do you continue if you have very little confidence? The brain holds you captive at times. How do you get over this?

    1. Thanks for that comment. First of, you can’t be ‘brave’ if you are afraid of everything. Secondly, how you could continue if you have very little confidence is by surrounding yourself with confident fellows; taking things one step at a time using the power to create techniques by following baby step rule https://thinkdigest.wordpress.com/2016/05/13/power-to-create-the-baby-step

      And thirdly, by building Confidence as Nicia did point out.
      Hope this helps

  2. First of all: Excellent quotes and great advice in this post! Here’s my philosophy on taking charge of your life: Whether you’re fearful or confident depends on a lot of factors, but it all boils down to two words: “thought habits.” Your dominant thoughts determine whether you’re timid or bold, successful or failure prone. After all is said and done, you have to take personal responsibility for your life and MAKE things happen, not wish them into existence. That’s true whether you’re looking for your soul mate or wanting to start your own successful business. https://www.ideas4startingabusiness.com

  3. What a wonderful post!

    I’ve been spending my time writing about some big questions in life. How to let go of insecurities, get closer to yourself and how to make some steps in personal development. It’s really good to get some inspiration from other blogs as yours.

    Really nicely said, keep it up 🙂
