Courage is full of exciting action. It’s doing what you know you should do, whether that means facing conflict, seeking resolution, impacting others, going above and beyond yourself, having a life of adventure.
It’s much bigger than yourself. Without courage, there is no living life to the fullest.
When lived out it encourages and lifts up others.
But what about the name of the show – Courageous Self-Confidence. Why add the adjective “courageous” anyway? Self-confidence built from courageous moment after courageous moment. Another way to say that is, as we exercise courage it helps us gain strides in self-confidence.
In this episode our hosts share about:
- How courage encourages others
- Moments of courage
- Comfort vs. Courage
- The relationship of courage and self-confidence
- How pressure causes growth
- Living a full life
Correct version of a quote we mention:
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” – Possibly Oscar Wilde
