The One Quality You Must Possess To Have A Great Life


“Courage is the choice to act in faith while fear IS present.”Deserve Your Great Life
 
If you want to do anything great in life, you MUST have courage – it’s non-negotiable. The problem is that most of us lack courage. Why? It’s scary. You see you cannot have courage without fear (If you aren’t afraid to do something it can’t be called courageous when you do it but “ordinary”). So, that means if you choose to be a courageous person that does significantly positive things in life, then you are going to be afraid…A LOT. And let’s be honest, who the heck likes to be afraid?

Not me.

But, if you are committed to being a person of faith and living out your God-given purpose, it means you must be committed to being courageous – albeit scary. It means you have to be willing to lose some support and have some critics as you step out on faith in your life and walk in your purpose. It means you have to be willing to be seen as “crazy” or “different” because quite frankly, YOU ARE DIFFERENT. It means you have to be willing to keep moving when you’re hurt, upset, sad, crying, or feeling not-so-hot at the moment. 

It means you have to be willing to keep the “80-20 rule” in play throughout your life; at least 80% faith and no more than 20% doubt at ALL times. It means you have to be willing to accept that you don’t know it all and you have TONS to learn as you go along in life – terribly scary when we’d much rather hold on to our pride instead. It means you have to be willing to stand firm in your faith even when it means you might be standing alone and would much rather crawl under the covers of your sheets and hide. It means you have to be willing to keep being productive in your life and stepping into the arena outside of your comfort zone.

It means you must have courage. Look around you – every great action taken or great thing created in life took courage.

If you want better relationships in life, it means you must have COURAGE to say goodbye, lose, and mourn (yes, mourn) old relationships that have been toxic to your spirit. If you want to attract a great mate in your life, you must have the COURAGE to admit that you have to become that which you wish to receive - The Law of Attraction. If you want to be a happier person in your life, you must have the COURAGE to admit that is has always, and will always depend on YOUR choice to be. 

If you want more peace, joy, and contentment in your life, you must have the COURAGE to create an environment around yourself that fosters those feelings. If you want to love God, honor HIS will for your life, and follow Christ, then you must have the COURAGE to choose God over yourself DAILY and sometimes stand out as “crazy”.  (Learn how to embrace and use your “crazy” from my previous post with Steve Harris.)

If you want a great life, you MUST have courage – it’s non-negotiable. The purpose you were created for demands it.

My question to you, loves, is this: when will YOU finally choose to say “yes” to courage and start waving at your fears on your road of purpose?

I hope your answer is NOW:)))
