Just 20 Seconds of Insane Courage

There is a great line in the family/feel good movie “We Bought a Zoo” “Just 20 seconds of insane courage…literally, just 20 seconds of embarrassing bravery and something great will come of it.” Think about it…so frequently the gap between where we are and where we want to be is just 20 seconds of courage away. The interesting thing is that what holds most of us back from doing something is the fear of being embarrassed, but more times than not when we close our eyes, hold our breath and jump in, all the things we were afraid might happen don’t and great things do. I guess it is one of those prices of success. It is what the most successful people I know have learned to overcome…they have learned to overcome the fear and have the courage to go for it. In sales it’s making that first cold call, or knocking on that first door. These two things terrify most people. What most people are afraid of is someone slamming the phone down on them or slamming the door in their face. Take it from someone who has knocked on thousands of doors and made thousands of cold calls…this very rarely ever happens. Most of the time people are pretty cool and once you get past the first few calls or doors, it is pretty easy and can actually be pretty fun and rewarding.So, what is it that you have been wanting to do, but have been afraid to take that first step or just have not had the courage to jump in and do it? It may be in any of the areas of your F5 (Faith, Family, Friends, Fitness, Finance)? My advice this week is to go for it…take a chance!!!!!! What is the worst thing that can happen? Can you live with that? What is the best thing that could happen? How does that feel? Be courageous and have an AMAZING week and an AMAZING life!!!!!!
