The Wisdom of Nelson Mandela: Day 6
To have courage in life does not mean that you do not have any fear. Fear is something that drives us and challenges us in life. It pushes us to try new things and test our limits. When you take that challenge and push yourself to try new things you then triumph over it.
When you avoid the things that give you fear you are actually feeding into the fear more. As spoken about in one of our past blog entries, "Fear", you are actually better of trying the thing that you are afraid of. By doing so you then know what the result is. If you never try you will never know. And in most cases it is actually not as scary as you thought it would be. The mind tends to go to the worst case scenario and in many times focus on things that would never even happen.
Live your life by just doing just that, live it! You can always look back and learn from it and say 'I shouldn't have done that'.
