How To Have The Courage To Be Yourself

Fear is the basis of all limitations.

Have the courage to walk off the beaten path.

Conquer fear, to become fearless and live without limits.

The fear of judgement to be one’s true self is the most common fear.

Is it possible to be accepted for who we truly are ?

Many people think these thoughts, and if this person is you, no worries

Look no further for quality information on how you can create the courage to be yourself !

Read on below ..

Here are some tips to break through:

** Reclaim Your Agenda **

Freedom and greatness belong to those who master their day.

Do not feel bad for taking control of your life and the direction of your day.

Quit the dispassionate work and seek out what will make your soul sing.

Only surround yourself with people who move you forward towards your deepest internal fulfillment and satisfaction.

No one can can stop you. Believing otherwise is accepting the role of victim in life.

Our day is ultimately our choice.

** Defeat Your Demons **

We all have to dive deep within ourselves and face our greatest insecurities head on.

Remember the voice inside your head, your higher self, is your friend and is there to support you.

Listen to it and give it love.

Forgive yourself or let go from the demons that are holding you back.

Stop doubting.

The moment we begin asking “what if..” followed by a negative outcome we allow ourselves to fall right back into fear.

Meditation is the answer in finding truth — once you discover yourself you can change everything around you

** Advance with Abandon **

Reality is bendable to our will if we just take consistent action.

Take risks and jump into the water with two feet !

Imperfect action is better than no action at all.

Those who lack this belief never advance with great power and constancy.

Action is the yardstick of character. Only action reveals our true selves.

Only action moves us to mastery.

Stop thinking about the critics.

Just get to it already !

** Amplify Love **

Love is a practical tool for bettering our lives.

If we lead with love it is felt by others immediately.

Use love as your shield that breaks arrows of hate and cynical critique.

Opening ourselves more to love is akin to opening life’s secret treasures, that more love makes us more empathetic, connected, and influential with others. Love is a practical tool for bettering our lives. .

Kieran Mathew, a leading millennial entrepreneur based in Toronto and founder of Amplify Solutions Inc., has broken through his limitations and shares his best insight on overcoming your self-doubt

He suggests to:

  1. Embrace Imposter’s Syndrome

Ever heard of the common phrase .. “Fake it till you make it” ?

When starting a new venture or entering a new role inside a corporation, we often feel inadequate.

Just know, that is how everyone else feels in the early stages of professional development !

Embrace this.

We do not grow inside of our comfort zones.

Embrace this fear and hesitation and work to overcome it.

Ask questions and learn. No one expects you to be an expert right away.

This is the absolute best time to maximize individual growth.

2. Analyze the Fear

Any fear can be broken down with a little bit of logic.

Question it. Ask what am I afraid of?

Disappointing my boss? Disappointing the board?

Go deeper. How will this affect me?

It’s important to take a step back during times of heightened stress.

Through analyzing the fear and looking at the greater picture, you will see its not all that scary after all.

3. Use Your Support Network

There is absolutely no harm is asking for help.

Whether it is from a friend, a family member, a colleague or a stranger.

Have a conversation.

It’s remarkable to understand how many others have gone through a similar process to you, and how they have overcome it.

An outsider’s perspective is invaluable.

There is no need to always be the stone cold, tough guy or girl.

Use these people as support and for guidance.

You will learn more about yourself and grow.

Leave Normal Behind, become the best version of yourself, and create things that matter
