People often talk about courage as if it were something that everyone has and can draw on when needed. As if the courage used in one situation can be transferred to another situation with equal success.

Courage Fear Buttons Shows Bravery Or Scared

When I decided to pursue my writing, I’ll admit I had some doubts. What if I’m not good?  What if nobody offers me a contract? What if nobody buys the books? Even though I was covered in skepticism, I decided to stare down the uncertainty and give it a try.

I realize doubt does not mean fear. Sometimes it only means there are more unanswered questions or unresolved issues to sort out.

Currently I have published seven books and my stomach still churns with apprehension. As I examine the next step in my long-term plan the questions that swarm in my head make my path a little less certain. I wish I could summon the same strength I’ve used before to embark on major tasks, but it’s not working as well as I’d like.


Now Red Word And Clock

Who knew courage came in so many shapes, sizes and forms? Now that I know this, I’ll sort through the questions and push forward until I feel comfortable. But more than anything, I’ll stop being upset with myself for being indecisive. It doesn’t mean I’m not brave, it only means I haven’t addressed all of my questions yet.


How about you? Are you courageous enough to take the first step?
