For your brave outburst: Set goals
Where do you want the journey of a lifetime to go for you? New goals and changes require courage. But it would be far too bad if you did not live your life 100 percent because you let yourself be influenced by your fears, maybe even by your comfort. So get out of your comfort zone! It's up to you. You can steer your ship in the right direction. Answer the following questions for yourself:
- What do you want to achieve in your life?
- Did you a vision?
- What would you implement directly now if all options were open to you?
Often our wishes buzz around unexpressed in our heads. Grab a piece of paper and start putting your wishes and dreams on paper. Write them down! Visualize your wishes! You can also paint them on. There are no limits to your imagination. And always remember: Even small steps lead to the goal.

Courageous outburst: Examine your beliefs
In each of us, beliefs are anchored. These can have both positive and negative effects on your life. In order to start successfully into your dream life, try to check your beliefs. Is your belief system correct? Can you really not reach your goals? Or is it just a negative belief that has settled in your head and is not true at all? Then it is high time to change this dogma!
What fears accompany you?
Why are you hesitating? Are you afraid to make decisions because your environment might react negatively? Then put that fear aside. Don't be a nag and a sourpuss. Because this is about you and making your dreams come true. Your happiness should not depend on the envy or resentment of others. Get rid of those thoughts. Because everyone should have the courage to go his own way and live in peace.
Avoid pigeonhole thinking
Who hasn't? Here comes the new colleague into the office, a quick glance and a greeting and bang, the new one is in a drawer. Without a second thought. Drawer open, man in, drawer closed and done. Our brain sorts the world this way. It often happens automatically. That's why you should avoid it. Avoid pigeonholing and make sure to take people out of your drawers. And very important: Don't put so much emphasis on it when you are put into a drawer yourself.
Courageous outburst - love yourself
To be courageous, you need self-love and self-acceptance. Not only trust in yourself and your abilities is important. Self-love must not be neglected either. Whoever loves himself radiates energy. I'm sure you know that too. There are people who enter a room and draw all eyes to themselves. The people who light up a room. People who accept themselves and go through their lives authentically. You can do that too. And the cornerstone for this is self-love. Accept yourself with all your faults and mistakes. In this article you'll learn some great exercises to boost your self-love. Have faith in yourself and in your person!
Courage is at the beginning of action, luck at the end.Democritus
Leave your comfort zone
Enough with the comfort and get out of your comfort zone! If you want to be brave, you must also overcome the limits of your comfort zone. That's easier said than done. Because everything is safe in your comfort zone. You can move around in it without danger, after all you are on your safe territory. In your safe zone, you have nothing to be afraid of. But at the same time it also prevents you from taking risks and trying out new things. So take heart! Climb the walls - even if it means leaving your safe zone. Challenges strengthen you. Now is the time for your brave escape.
And watch out: Don't be intimidated by yourself. Don't let yourself be bullied by your thoughts that tell you that you can't do this and that. Don't let your fears get in the way of what you can do. And certainly not by other people who you think are much braver. Overcome your inner bastard and forget your doubts!
Don't doubt yourself
The fear of making mistakes often persists in our consciousness. But not everything can be perfect. And that's perfectly okay. So when things aren't going perfectly..: Don't be down in the mouth. On the contrary: doubts unsettle and fuel fears. And that's exactly why you should stop weakening yourself with self-doubt. This is not the right solution and certainly not the way to a happy life. Do not let other people distract you from your dreams. Why should I? Live for what you love. Have faith in yourself and your abilities. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Let the past be the past and look ahead: into your positive future.
Admit your mistakes
Everyone has both strengths and weaknesses. And even if it is not easy - stand by your mistakes and do not deny them. This is not only a sign of courage, but also gives you confidence. Those who stand by their mistakes and know their weaknesses can trust themselves. And this gives you more self-confidence.
