Being brave isn’t expensive. It is the inner strength that we all have. It has been rooted within us for ages when our ancestors used to ward off wild animals while living in the jungles. We have just subdued our braveries and have surrendered to aids that can help us.

“Bran thought about it. ‘Can a man still be brave if he’s afraid?’

‘That is the only time a man can be brave,’ his father told him.”

― George R.R. Martin

We all are afraid of something or the other. But what separates you from someone else is not how fearless you are but how brave you can be when you fear something. Remember the time when you appeared for your first interview? It is during these times when the fear of the unknown engulfs you, that you wrap yourself in the cloak of bravery and charge forward. Because who knows even the other interviewees are equally afraid and looking at your confidence, the interviewer might choose you. Be brave enough to face your fears and conquer your life!

“Don’t be afraid of your fears. They’re not there to scare you. They’re there to let you know that something is worth it.”

― C. JoyBell C.

Have you ever felt scared while you were headed to a rollercoaster, even if you enjoy it? Riding a rollercoaster is remarkably different from a porch swing. And once you start riding it, the fear transforms into the thrill, and when the rollercoaster finally comes to a stop, you are bubbling with excitement and energy. Because in the end, despite the fear, it was all worth it. So if you are scared to venture out and experience life, do not be. Because your fears have a way of telling you that it will be worth it in the end. Be brave enough to experience the thrill of doing something exciting! “Darr ke aage jeet hai.”

“Life shrinks or expands according to one’s courage.”

-Anais Nin

Fear often inhibits our growth. We tend to stay stuck in a job or a relationship because we are scared of stepping out into the unknown. We have embraced comfort over experiences. But if you want to achieve your dreams that define your purpose, you need to overcome your illusions of fear. More often than not, our fears are just a way for our minds to tell us to take a step back because it doesn’t want to go through the efforts of working a new route to this unknown place.  Be brave enough to dream bigger!gala sabka sukhta hai, darr sabko lagta hai Par darr se daroge toh kuch bada kaise karoge”

“I believe that the most important single thing, beyond discipline and creativity, is daring to dare.”

― Maya Angelou

You may have dreams and aspirations, but if you aren’t brave enough to follow your own path, all the dreams are just illusions. No one succeeded in life without taking a leap of faith. It is good to have a sense of security, but if your comfort zone cocoons you always, you may not be able to find what thrills you. No matter what your hopes are for the future, if you have to do one thing today, be brave! Be brave enough to follow your path!

“Every person has the power to change their fate if they are brave enough to fight for what they desire more than anything.”

― Stephanie Garber,

You are your own lighthouse with the power to transform your destiny. People may tell you that they would never pursue something scary. Do not let them decide what is risky. There is a high chance that you will risk the person you are to become the person you want to be. Follow your instincts! Be brave enough to be who you want to be, not what the world wants you to be.

“What’s the bravest thing you ever did?

He spat in the road a bloody phlegm. Getting up this morning, he said.”

― Cormac McCarthy, The Road

There may be times when life would feel heavy and living would seem tiresome. Failures are a part of life. There is no step forward without a step backward. Even when you have to run, you tend to take a step back to gain the required momentum. So do not be disheartened with failures. They are as significant as success. Be brave enough to face your failures and make them the propellor that lifts the rocket of your life to greater heights.

Bravery is nothing but managing your fears. And fears are nothing but snippets of stories our mind tells us. Be a storyteller yourself and spin-off a nice story using your fears and make your strengths the brave hero!

“There are so many ways to be brave in this world. Sometimes bravery involves laying down your life for something bigger than yourself, or for someone else. Sometimes it involves giving up everything you have ever known, or everyone you have ever loved, for the sake of something greater. But sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes it is nothing more than gritting your teeth through pain, and the work of every day, the slow walk toward a better life. That is the sort of bravery I must have now.”

― Veronica Roth, Allegiant
