Ways You Can Be Brave
What Is Bravery?
First of all, ask yourself what bravery means to you. The dictionary defines bravery as having courageous behavior or character. Having courage basically means being able to have strength in the face of danger, or generally facing your fears. However, all of this can mean different things to different people. Personally defining this will help you take the next step.
Do You Have to Be Born Brave?
The short answer here, without getting into all of the science, is no. You can actually learn how to be brave and cultivate your own courage. You just have to be willing to take those first awkward steps. However, genetics may also play a role in bravery and some people could be born more courageous than others. A recent study by researchers working with mice found that there may indeed be a bravery gene. That being said, you too can learn how to be more brave.
Learning to Be Brave
Learning how to be braver begins with the right mindset. Just like with anything, you need to have a set of small and measurable goals. Small goals will allow you to build more confidence in what you're setting out to accomplish. You need to have a flexible plan as well. One that you'll be able to fit into your already hectic schedule as well as one that allows you to move forward and progress fairly easily.
Next, you have to be willing to put yourself out there, outside of your comfort zone, and face a few of your fears. Now we're not saying that if you're scared to death of heights you should go sky-diving. We suggest that you start out small and work your way up. If you're scared of heights, a great way to face this fear is by going indoor rock climbing. You'll be in a safe and controlled environment that will allow you to move at your pace.
This is just the beginning of our ideas on how to be brave. Don't forget to check out part two of this series where you'll learn a few more easy ways to be fearless. If you, or a loved on needs help with addiction, keep reading to see how we can help you, your family, or your friends.
