It takes courage to do everything. When it comes to you, when it comes to your life, do you have the courage to choose yourself? Do you have the courage to love yourself for who you really are?

Look, if you want to live a peaceful life, you must choose yourself. Do not let anything stop you from living your life. Stop complaining about your disappointments. Stop complaining about what is not going well for you. Instead, focus on choosing yourself. Because if you do not have the courage to choose yourself, no one is going to choose you.

Choose yourself. Choose your life. Say yes to your life. Choose how you want to live your life. Because if you cannot choose how you want to live your life, if you cannot choose yourself, if you are afraid to choose yourself, people will choose your life for you. Do not let that happen to you. Remember, if you want to live a great life, you MUST have the courage to choose yourself. You must have the courage to love yourself. Will you do it for YOU?

How To Find The Courage To Be Yourself

“Can a man still be brave if he’s afraid?”- George R. R. Martin

You don’t get gold medals for being timid; you get gold medals for being brave, for being courageous. Stop waiting for the perfect time to reinvent yourself. Yes, it takes courage to leave where you are. But without courage, you are not going anywhere. If you want to be successful, courage is the way. Seneca once said, “Courage leads to heaven; fear, to death.” If you want to go to heaven, you must develop the courage to live your life. And to do that, let us explore the following ways:

Learn more about yourself

To know what you want, you must first know what you do not want. To face your future, you must learn more about yourself. You must know what your weaknesses and strengths are. You must be brave. John Updike said, “You cannot help but learn more as you take the world into your hands. Take it up reverently, for it is an old piece of clay, with millions of thumbprints on it.” You can never know how courageous you are until you have faced something terrible. And if you can face it, you will succeed.

Dedicate yourself to your dream”

So be encouraged and dedicate yourself to your dream and if your dream should come my way one day then we will dance upon the boards of life.”- Ben Vereen

Francois de La Rochenfoucauld once said, “We can never be certain of our courage until we have faced danger.” You can find the courage to live your life if you are brave enough to dedicate your life, yourself to your dream. Because you cannot get what you want without dedicating your life to it. So if you want your dream to happen, you must dedicate yourself to it.

“Admit to yourself your own errors”

It is hard to admit our own errors. But it is the best way to learn from our mistakes. If you cannot admit your own errors to yourself, then you are not going to be able to learn from your failures. It is painful, but doable. According to Ludwig Van Beethoven, “Nothing is more intolerable than to have to admit to yourself your own errors.” It is okay to make mistakes. When you make a mistake, do not hide it, reveal it. Let other people know about it. It is hard, but you can do it.

Do not fear change

Whether you like change or not, it is here to stay. Change is not going anywhere. So if you don’t want to be left behind, you must embrace change. Do not fight change, embrace it. If you do, peace and growth will follow you. Alan Watts said, “The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.”
