When I was little my Dad told me that courage isn’t the absence of fear, rather it is what makes you keep going when you’re terrified.
Which is why the final of my Top 5 #InsideSales Leadership Tips (for my 50th) is “The only things that require courage are those that scare you.”
I work to do at least ONE thing each day in my career that scares me.
> making a difficult call
> asking a question that makes me uncomfortable
> trying someone else’s way
> stopping things that were good habits once, but are no longer serving my success
> looking at opportunities differently
What scares you?
Be brave, take courage, do one thing EVERY DAY you know will move you forward – but scares the bejesus out of you.
