Courage doesn’t have to be the grand gesture we usually think of when we talk about being courageous.  It can be a simple act that moves you up from splat.  I explain how in the video below.

    Thanks, Ande. You do such a nice job on these videos.

    Abraham has re-defined my notion of courage. It’s no longer ignoring my fear and moving forward anyhow but rather “cleaning up” my fear with better-feeling thoughts before I move forward. The outcome is then so much better.

    I really like this suggestion of going for the little every day ‘courages’ rather than thinking we have to do something gigantic. Such beautifully shared wisdom. Thank you, Ande.

    Thanks, Karen. That’s a clearer way of saying “try again,” for sure. Every shift we make to a better feeling thought leads us to the next little action. You’re right that the notion of feeling fear but doing things anyway, which is the old wisdom, is a pushing against, and it brings the negative vibration into what we’re doing. Very good point!

    Nice one. It puts me in mind of the “baby steps” concept of change. Like so many people, I’m an all or nothing kinda gal, and much afflicted by the curse of perfectionism, so I want to be perfect and I want it NOW! But like courage, change comes gradually and builds up step by step.

    You’re right, Tess. It does apply to change too, which isn’t a surprise, since change usually requires courage. And I’m like you and I want to do it just right the first time. I had that mirrored back to me one day when an 8 year old girl was talking about learning to type on a computer keyboard. She kept wanting me to type things in for her because I was “so much faster.” I told her that the more she practiced, the better she’d get too. She pounded on the keyboard and said, “I want to be fast NOW!” I had to hold back laughter. She wanted to type like I did, and I’d been typing for almost 30 years. We all want our skills to come in super-fast motion. :)
