I love the song "If I Were Brave" by Jana Stanfield. In it she questions what she would do if she were brave today. I think it is a great question to ask ourselves each morning. I think it is an important question for entrepreneurs because those challenges may make all the difference in making it as a new business. Yet it is an important question for anyone, no matter what age or line of work because answering this question is a great example of courage. Even just admitting what you want or what you want to do is an act of bravery. Then to give yourself permission to take that step is another act of courage. Courage is the spice of life! And the secret is, we ALL have it! It may show up in different ways or there may be times we resist it but every one of us is born courageous. It took courage to take those first steps, to speak those first words, and to do a million other things that we now do every single day! I'm grateful for those first steps at walking, for those first steps of adult life, for those first steps as an entrepreneur, and now for the first steps of the next chapter of my life. I'm grateful to have a voice, beliefs, and gratitude to share. I'm grateful for whatever dares face me today and I'm grateful to know I have the courage to face them and at least try. I'm grateful for a song that reminds me that I AM BRAVE already. What would you do "if" you were brave? What would it take to give yourself the permission to go for it? What small step could you take today toward your dreams? May your feet be guided by your heart. May you see your own strength and courage! Have a beautiful day!
I believe the way to a better future starts with gratitude today.
