Why You Need Courage, Not Confidence in 2021

Why You Need Courage Not Confidence

Do you often feel yourself envying those go getters that exude confidence in all that they do? Those people that seem to put themselves out there without hesitation and get things done?

If you have ever doubted yourself or lacked the confidence to do the same – you need to hear this…

You need courage, not confidence to pursue your dreams.

The new year is full of resolutions, dreams and goals. I dare you to dream big in 2021 without holding back. But with those big dreams, you also need to invest in the courage to push yourself.

Confidence is an Outcome of Confidence

Confidence is not something that happens naturally. It is an outcome of courage.

Stepping outside of your comfort zone or pushing yourself to try something new takes courage. New things can make you uncomfortable and it’s likely you won’t be confident at first.

It is only once you invest in yourself and push yourself to do it will you gain the experience, hone your skills and gain confidence.

“Get Comfortable With Being Uncomfortable”

Need a new personal motto for 2021? This is a great one to adopt.

If you are determined to make this year your best one yet, you need to dream big and chase those dreams without reserve. You also need to get comfortable with being uncomfortable.

Using courage as your driver, there will be many times that are uncomfortable but growth comes from discomfort.

Courage –> Discomfort –> Growth –> Confidence

Where Will Courage Take You in 2021?

With a new motto, mindset shift and a bundle of big dreams — where will 2021 take you? You are the driver.
