Growth is scary.
But growth happens one step a a time
And one little baby step, while still scary, is doable.
In the movie We Bought a Zoo, Matt Damon's character says that sometimes all you need is "20 seconds of insane courage."
And 20 seconds of courage, while scary, is doable.
20 Life-Changing Seconds
I don't know what 20 seconds of courage looks like for you.
But you do.
Maybe it's saying "Yes!" that invitation. Maybe it's scheduling that first appointment with a counselor.
It might even look like taking 20 seconds to speak truth to yourself, and encourage yourself not to give up.
Regardless of what it looks like, I know you have 20 seconds of insane courage in you. You have the courage to take that next small step towards growth---even though it's scary.
So muster up your courage. Take a deep breath.
And be insanely, crazy-go-nuts brave for 20 seconds.
The Courageous Life
When you do, you'll realize two things.
First, that 20 seconds of insane bravery, while scary, is doable--and it's something that you can do again.
And second that, done often enough
20 seconds of bravery adds up to a lifetime of courage.
Be courageous, my friends.
