Have you ever missed out on a career opportunity or a dream because you were too scared? Most of us probably have, which is why it’s never too late to push yourself further and overcome those fears.
If you’re going to develop the skills necessary to great leadership, you will have to challenge yourself. Leaders face challenges every day, challenges that require them to step outside their comfort zone. So it’s best to seek out these challenges now and test yourself so that you can grow more comfortable.
It takes courage to do something that scares you or puts you in an unfamiliar or uncomfortable situation. Fear of the unknown usually keeps us from taking the plunge. But it’s a willingness to face that fear that distinguishes the great leaders from the average ones, and you can teach yourself how to take first, frightening steps. You’ve probably already done something that took courage, and reminding yourself of all the instances when you overcame your fears will allow you to develop and grow your courage muscle.
