your life expands in proportion to your courage

your life expands in proportion to your courage

“It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live.”

— Marcus Aurelius

Fear anchors and limits us, while courage propels and liberates us. Being the exception, cultivating life mastery, and designing an extraordinary life demands us to to become courageous in our pursuits. 

Here’s a key insight: The magnitude of the risks that you’re willing to take determines the magnitude of your success.

As a leader and change-maker, you must understand the significance of courage. It not only helps you open new doors and chart unfamiliar territories, but it also gives you the opportunity to practice virtue and do the right thing. 

Helen Keller once said, “Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold.”

If it’s a given that you’ll have to face fears and overcome them, why not take the quantum leap and focus on pursuits that bring you meaning, joy and fulfillment? In that way, you’ll make it count and have no regrets later on in your life.
