5 Ways To Be Fucking Courageous

The first problem that occurred when writing this article was the title, I knew me writing the word “fucking” in the title would more than likely offend some people and I actually considered removing it, but that would not of been very courageous of me would it.

You see, when you decide you are going to follow your passion and live life on your terms there is a considerable amount of courage that is needed. You will meet opposition, adversity and if you do well enough, you will receive a fair amount of criticism, but this should not hold you back from doing what you know is right in your heart.

Courage is misunderstood, can be mistaken for impulsiveness, over confidence or an inflated ego. Courage can be you shutting up and listening or overcoming something that comes easily to everyone else. Courage can be the ability to just let go and accept others or to start giving back to those around you. The truth is what courage looks like to me, may be very different to you, but deep inside you will know what you need to be courageous about!

Courage Is Not An Absence Of Fear

Courageous people do not build up a resistance to fear, when confronted with the right situation we all get tense, our hearts start pounding and we quickly fill up with self-doubt and fear.

The courageous person will accept this as part of the process and just take action anyway.

Courage Can Be Learnt

The best way to build up the habit of doing what makes you uncomfortable, is by doing what makes you uncomfortable. You will make mistakes, say and do the wrong thing and sometimes your nerves will take complete control and force you out of action. It’s all part of the process, keep practicing and you will get there!

Courage Is Standing Up For What You Believe In Regardless Of Opinions

The way you look, the way you have your hair, your clothes, style and appearance all take courage if you are truly doing it in the way you want.

If you truly live out your true political beliefs, morals, ethics and values, based on what you think, not what you have been told then you are living courageously!

Courage is to be the change and truly live out your life the way you think is correct, to educate yourself the way you want to be educated, to work the job or business you have true affinity for and not to stray from that which you think is right.

Align Yourself With Those Who Share Your Courage

It can be lonely being courageous, as sometimes it means breaking away from norms and the people who mistake your courage for insanity.

The good thing is there are literally unlimited amounts of people who are living out a similar existence to the one you are and you can find them.

Get out into the world, seek out those who view the world the same as you and build your team of supporters. This doesn’t mean you should stay away from those who view the world differently, it means if you live a certain way that is easily judged by others you should find people who live the same way and share that aspect of your life with them.

Courage Can Be Ugly

Courage is admirable by most, but is in no way always pretty. Courage can mean being broke, courage can mean sacrifice of free time. It can mean getting down on the floor and speaking with the homeless or moving back in with your parents to survive. It can mean failure, rejection and suffering.

With that being said courage can also be beautiful, it can open doors, relationships and give you immeasurable freedom. Although it will not always produce what you want when you want it, it is the most rewarding thing you can ever do.

Get comfortable, being uncomfortable, quit the job you hate, meet the partner of your dreams, live the life you know you should, don’t accept second best and be fucking courageous in your life!

I hope you have enjoyed this article, have the courage to share it with those you think may benefit!
