Courage Is Not The Absence Of Fear

You see them everyday, working their businesses, talking to everyone they see and you wonder how are they doing it – courage is not the absence of fear.  Deuteronomy 31:6 says “Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”

Courage or bravery is not the absence of fear, it is acting in the face of fear and triumphing over it. Many people think that those who do courageous acts or are seen as heroes, don’t feel fear. This isn’t true since fear is biologically wired into all human beings. Fear is necessary for survival, since in the face of fear, you should either flee or fight. However, even though everyone feels fear, that doesn’t mean that you have to be a slave to your fears.

In order to bCourage Is Not The Absence of Feare courageous, you must learn to overcome your fears and face them. By facing them, you will gain control over your emotions and become that brave person that you wish to be. For example, firefighters are often very brave and courageous people. They have to face fires on a daily basis and save others from death while risking their own lives. However, they have trained themselves to overcome their natural fear of fire and save the lives of fellow human beings. Now, even though you may not want to become a firefighter, learning to overcome your fears or face them is essential in life and essential in your business. So, we will now look at a few tips that can help you do just that.

Tips to becoming courageous in your business

You need to branch out and do the one thing you are afraid to do in your business.  The first thing you should do when you are in a situation where you want to be brave, but are fearful, is to control your breathing. By controlling your breath, you will be able to exercise greater control of your mind and your emotions. Remember, fear is just an emotion and you can rise above it. So, take a few minutes to slowly breathe in and out until you calm down. You can practice breathing in for 7 counts and breathing out or 11 counts. This will definitely help you to calm your tumultuous emotions and enable you to accomplish your goal.

Another way to develop courage in the presence of fear is to engage your logical mind. Fear is not always a rational emotion and can be simply in your own mind. For example, if you are afraid of making a public speech or are afraid of spiders, then these are irrational fears. You can easily kill these fears by asking yourself: “what is the worst thing that can happen?” Or, as my mother would say, ” nothing beats a failure but a try, what can you lose.” By asking these questions, you engage your logical mind, which will determine that you are in no real threat, but fear itself. Courage Is Not The Absence Of Fear

Lastly, the final tip is to simply fully feel your fear and just do it anyway. Many gurus advocate this method, simply because it works. You will have to immerse yourself in the feeling of fear and then act in the face of it. By doing this, you will actively build your courage and personal strength and it will make you stronger every time you do so.  I say every time because its not just go do it and it’s over.  You have to do it again and again.  Joshua 1:9 says, Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

In conclusion, I have just briefly discussed why courage is not the absence of fear, but action in the face of it. We have also looked at a few tips to help you cultivate your own courage and overcome fears. So, with that said, courage is like a muscle, once you keep overcoming your fears and acting in the face of them, you will certainly gain mastery over your life.
