Courage gives us strength. Courage opens doors. Courage saves lives. Courage helps us grow in small and big ways. Everyone from a college graduate entering the workforce for the first time to a world leader running a country must act with courage, not just once but repeatedly.
Being courageous is a key component of strong leadership. But what exactly is courage, and how can we access it?
Like so many complex psychological human characteristics, courage can be difficult to nail down. On the surface, courage seems like one of those “I know it when I see it” concepts. Here is the seven traits of courageous people.
4. Commitment: Be consistent on your goal, vision (Why?), no matter what challenges and obstacles your facing right now. It will boost your confidence as well as courage.
5. Embracing Risk: Courage requires taking intentional risks. And the bigger the risk, the more courage it takes (and the bigger the outcome can be). Never afraid of taking risks.
6. Adaptability: People who are able to adapt to change, embrace feedback, navigate new environments and un-learn the human tendency to lean toward comfort and predictability demonstrate a higher capacity for courageous decision making.
7. Acceptance: The sooner you can embrace what is and let go of expectations you've attached to particular outcomes, the faster you can navigate life with more courage.
These traits exist within all of us to varying extents. Courage lives within us, even when we don’t feel brave. Courage is not only a noun but a verb. Anyone can "courage" a scary next step, courage their integrity, courage their future. Choosing courage as an action leads to personal growth and positive change. One way you can tap into courage at any time is to ask yourself, “How can I courage this moment?”

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
