With Courage




‘Everyone has a ‘risk muscle.’ You keep it in shape by trying new things. If you don’t, it atrophies. Make a point of using it at least once a day.’
Roger Von Oech

We are often so comfortable in routine, we forget there are other ways to live. Make a point to do something brave each day.

Step out of your comfort zone, leave the routine even if for only a few minutes. This might mean talking to someone that you generally wouldn’t talk to or starting a project that you feel intimidated by.

There is no need to plan it in advance – though that might help at times, usually though you’ll find a point during the day when ‘two paths diverge in the woods’ and you have the chance to take the one less traveled by. Take it.

Each successful experience will build your confidence and motivate you to try something else.

Do not fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things. The saddest summary of a life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have.

Stretch yourself today to do that thing you have been afraid to try…… Allow fresh air, new experiences and new opportunities to enter your life. Expand your horizons.

‘Expand your mind, challenge yourself, learn more, do more and try more. Get enthusiastic, passionate and excited about the unknown. Try something new, visit new places, dance to the latest beats. Simply get out and give it all and you will never stop growing, smiling and loving life.’
Ricardo Housham
