Instant Courage

  1. Cash in an IOU— I’ve done it before (or something like it) so I can do it again.
  2. Focus on the benefit not the risk– It’s human nature to automatically assume the worst is going to happen so assume the best outcome – I will succeed – and what that would mean to you.  This is the most important secret of garnering instant courage.
  3. Courage is a promise to yourself– Not a superhuman personality trait.  People become more courageous when they say they are going to muster up whatever they need to succeed.
  4. The most important words are “I Will” – Not I can’t.  I shouldn’t.  I couldn’t.  I’m not sure.  No.  Just these two words give most people all the courage they will ever need.
