In today’s world, fear has been breeding in all of us in a lot of situations and in the many things that we do. We often have a lot of questions in our minds. And sometimes we feel unease to the point that we tend to hold back.

It is true! Fear can take toll into our lives. It can cripple our drive to try and will power to do things. It can take away our strength, motivation and faith. It can hold us stagnant. And even worst, we may cease to exist by doubting the very core of ourselves and our potential. These are some of the reasons why we need find courage within us.

To live a life with courage is to live a full and meaningful life despite the presence of fear. We cannot take away fear that easily but we can help and free ourselves from the paralysis of fear. We have to take a step and move forward in the pursuit of happiness and in becoming the best versions of ourselves.

Let’s reflect and consider some of the valuable tips and advice on living courageously. First, we should be willing to be vulnerable. We should not hide our true feelings and our authentic self. There is nothing wrong in expressing our feelings. Our emotions and tears are natural and nothing to be ashamed of. Learning to be more open and not be afraid to show our real self will boost our confidence. We should embrace ourselves and be more compassionate. We should not feel bad about the circumstances and difficulties we experience. Kindness in our hearts will give us comfort and we should seize the opportunity to learn from trying. We should acknowledge and accept our fears. We should not deny or shut the feeling of being afraid of something or of doing something. Recognizing our fears will assist us in carefully dealing with the situation. Being honest to ourselves is the key.

We can also try to expose ourselves to what we fear. Facing and doing repeatedly the things we fear, even in slow pace, can help us manage things and practice courage. We should not lose the enthusiasm of trying and daring ourselves to go beyond what we have done before. This will push us through to continue forward. If we are losing the momentum and experiencing setbacks, we should constantly remind ourselves of our core values. This will bring us back to the meaning on why we are doing this and give us a sense of direction.

Stress is often tagged along with fear. Managing stress by doing activities like exercise and meditation will help us to be more relax and calm. We should learn to tolerate the situation for us to be more focus on our goals. It is important for us continue to believe in our own ability and capacity and not lose hope. We should be more optimistic and not concentrate on the negative aspects of the things that we fear. We should continue to be inspired and rise above the test and our fears.

In the end, we should not always live in fear instead we should brave up. Fear will always be there but it is in us on whether we let it control us or we take courage to face it. We should not forget that courage is not only about facing our fears but also taking risk and positively dealing with uncertainties. We should continue to reach beyond our limitations and be courageous enough to accept whatever the consequences and results may be. And we should always remember that living a life with courage and learning is a true worthwhile and fulfilling life.
