Our theme for July is all about courage. Our CEO has kicked off this months theme, with her blog post below!
A spoonful of courage…
The past few months have been extremely busy for me, productive and transitional but very busy. I have had to ensure that I learn to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. By this I mean having the courage to take the leap and hope that everything will fall into place by the time I make it to the other side.
Courage – Acting with bravery in fearful situations.
Courage – In the case of these past few months, courage means ensuring I think smart and take practical steps to make substantial changes at the right time.
Sometimes when you’re passionate about something, it may be a sport, a project, a business; you have the potential to be a victim of your own success.
When moving your passion to the next step…you have to think about who you’re going to share your success with.
When you allow your passion to grow and develop, you may find it becomes bigger than you. Then you have to think about how you will manage it and connect with others who share your passion too, so together you can work towards a common goal.
There’s a great old saying, feel the fear and do it anyway. Occasionally, do something that brings a bit of fear and makes your heart race. The sense of accomplishment that it brings afterwards is where the personal growth happens.
Whether it’s public speaking, sharing your ideas for a business or volunteering, take deep breaths and have a spoonful of courage!
