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.
