Step 1: Courage

I was with some friends over the weekend and we had a discussion about the different tools available at our disposal to achieve different goals. One person, rejected each of the suggestions, one by one, until there was clearly nothing that could help him. Then, a new friend to the group, innocently asked: “Why don’t try one of them? Experiment a bit.”

No one said a word to the point where I wanted to say something to break the silence. Finally, the person who didn’t find one option to his liking said, “I can’t risk it. What if I fail?”

His honesty created an opening for a discussion of how scary some things can be and how forward motion can happen a teeny tiny step at a time.

So even if you don’t have much courage today, find a small place where you might and start there.
