Hello, I'm Angela, and it's time for Word of the Week. Many of us have been living this word in many variations in particular over the last three plus years now, and in uncertain times, we have to find our courage. Steve Jobs once said, he looked back to dot his "i's" to get his confidence. And confidence can't come without courage. Courage has to come first.
So, the word of the week is courage. "I am courageous. I am brave. I am resourceful. I am resilient. I am strong. I am courageous. I am filled up with courage. I have the courage to take the next step. I have the courage to step up, step out in my life, to strengthen my own voice, to be my own person and my own best advocate." Courage.
So you won't always have the ability to use hindsight when you're present living.
When you're mindful living, what you want to do is look back first so that you can reinforce that courage to be able to look forward and have trust and faith that yes, I've got this. And eventually you won't need to look back at all, that courage will come just by looking straight ahead.
It's Not About the Outcome
I've done this before many, many times over before I have done this. So often when we're faced with circumstances, it's not so much about the outcome of what we do in that conversation or negotiation, presentation. It is more in the exercising of it, in the exercising of our courage muscle.
Try saying the word to yourself. Look back, dot your own "i's" this week. Take a look at those moments of courage that you yourself have had, and use that for stepping forward, fuller, bigger, better, stronger, more, even more confident, and get there faster- easier, even more importantly, for living well... today.
