Fearless, Fabulous Living vs Cowardice Consequences

Bravery is having the courage to do things that you do not have to do in life. Dating, marriage, having children and buying a home all require a level of bravery. These are relatively common fears to overcome. But what about the really tough stuff? The stuff you don't talk, text, or tweet about to anyone. What about the decisions that arise between doing what's right for us vs what may serve the greater good? How often do we take the cowardly route to decision making to ease our own (sometimes irrational/sometimes justified) fears?

You want examples?

Our fear of poverty drives our level of charity. We don't give as much as we could because we need to save our money in case something happens. Our fear of poverty drives our level of charity.

Our fear of judgement drives our level of truth. We lie to those we feel may retaliate, leave us, or think poorly of our truth. We often lie to others to gain acceptance, keep up appearances, or simply keep ourselves in a comfortable position - out of trouble.

Our fear of being alone drives our decision in a mate. We often miss out on a wonderful relationship because we weren't brave enough to wait for what we wanted or deserved.

Our fear of failure drives our level of success. Rather than maxing out the gifts and talents God has given you, you stay in a comfortable level of Fabulosity that you can maintain. Instead of going in there and demanding the raise you deserve you take what they give you for fear of losing your job.

These are just a few examples of our lack of bravery in living life. But I am sure you can think of many more. The next time you are faced with a decision ask yourself, "Am I doing this because I am afraid?" Once you begin the road of fearless living, you will be free and fabulous. You will be full of joy in the toughest of times because you will know that you are a battle tested warrior for the cause of life. Be fearless!
