How To Increase Your Courage

How’s your courage? When did you last use it?

The thing is that courage is like a muscle. If you don’t use it, it withers away.

I’m not talking about huge acts of courage. It’s about the little moments. After all, if you want to become fit, it’s the small regular moments of exercise that make the difference in the long run.

Here are ways to train your courage:

Tip no#1: Start something new.
It’s hard to be a beginner again. It takes courage to learn something new and to be a newbie in amongst more experienced people.

Tip no#2: Go somewhere you’ve never been before.
Too often our life is on a track that has little variation. Do you always take the same way home from work? Or go to the same restaurant for a meal? Try going somewhere new.

Tip no#3: Say what is in your heart.
Do you sometimes suppress the true words that want to come out? I’m sure we all do that at times. What holds us back is fear. A good way to train your courage is to say something positive about a person – even if you’re nervous of how they’ll receive what you say.

Tip no#4: Speak to someone you don’t know.
Imagine being at a party where you don’t know most people. That can feel daunting. You’ll feel a lot better, if pluck up your courage and start a conversation with someone you don’t know. Ask them what they do, where they live, or what they are passionate about.

Tip no#5: Stand up for someone else.
If you see someone at work being treated unfairly, what do you do? Do you speak up – or remain silent. It’s the same with office gossip. Do you ever defend the person who is being run down? Try standing up for someone else – you will feel your courage grow.
