Survival Matters: 6 Methods for Building Courage When it Matters Most
Times continue to be tough right now. As tough as anything we’ve experienced in generations. Between all the chaos in the world and whatever catastrophe has happened closer to home, it’s no wonder you’re feeling a little nervous and even anxious about what’s going on. After all, you’re just trying to keep you and your family safe, a task which seems harder with each passing day.
When faced with a crisis, you need courage if you’re going to survive. The problem is, sometimes, courage can be in short supply, especially if you’re feeling like you’re already at the end of your rope, with stress and obligations pulling at you.
How in the world are you going to pull yourself up now?
The answer is simple.
You’re going to dig deep and find what you need to come out on top, using these six methods to get there.
Use Your Imagination
You’d think this would the last thing you want to do, but hear me out. Why not let your imagination run wild a little? Think about what might happen? What’s the worst (realistically speaking) thing which can happen? Honestly? The unknown is way more frightening than the known, so this will help.
Check Your Bias
Look at your thought process in this situation. Are you giving equal time to positive and negative thoughts, or are you focusing only on the negative? Why not give some equal time to positive thoughts? Change your viewpoint, and you’ll find it easier to be optimistic and less fearful.
We hide a lot of uncertainty and, as a result, deny ourselves a lot of potential support from those around us. Let others know how you’re feeling. Then sit back and listen as they share their experience, wisdom, and comfort with you.
Do Something Scary
If you’re fearful about a lot of things, start looking for little ways to be courageous to build up your self-confidence. Karaoke night, anyone?
It’s hard to be courageous when you’re feeling weak and frail. Start taking care of your physical health, and you’ll be amazed at how much more confident you feel in a very short time.
Be One of the Crowd
Realize there are millions of people feel the same way you do. By recognizing others feel the way you do, you’ll be surprised at how much the fear begins to dissipate.
Feeling like you need courage is all very normal, and while survival matters, you do have what it takes to get through any crisis.
By following these tips and digging deep into some hardcore resolve, you’re going to be just fine. If you’re looking for support remember I’m just a message away.
