7 Benefits of Having Courage!

7 Benefits to having courage:
A lot of people say "hey I got courage" but do they really? Courage is a word used now a days too lightly.   Courage is something that can make your life great or horrible, it is all based on how you use it.

There is no such thing as "not good enough" so go ahead and clear that from your mind. Moving on, "YOU" are great, beautiful, smart, worthy.  How does that make you feel? You feel slightly more confident hearing those words spoken to you? Of course you do, because words have power! 

"You are NOTHING" Focus on those words, you are WORTHLESS, UGLY, DUMB! Now how do you feel? You want to go crawl under a rock and cry? Well yeah! No one can hear that and not be effected by those words.

You're probably wondering what this has to do with courage... well everyday (sadly) people are being told these words in many forms.  Through others actions, words, and thoughts. The worst part is that people believe it and let it control them or control their day. AND THATS NOT OKAY!

Words have power rather if we like it or not, so we need to learn how to control the words we use.  Speak words of life to others even people who beat you down with their words.  Lift them up and I guarantee they will begin lifting others.

7 Benefits:
1. You feel more confident. (It takes more to bring you down than usual)
2. You see things differently. (The glass is half full, the sun is brighter, hey thats a pretty rock!)
3. You lift others up. (People always need encouraging so give others what they need)
4. You gain experience. (Courage brings you to take chances you normally wouldn't and you grow from it new experience)
5. You are more successful. (People are always looking to hire or promote people who show true courage)
6. You're admired. (People notice when others have courage, and they in return try to model themselves after them)
7. You are truly HAPPY. (Having courage brings happiness and joy to your life, and makes it worth living)


  1. So true. These are really great benefits that not only help you, but everyone else around you too.

  2. I think I like gain experience best! That is so true especially when you are starting a new project!

  3. Yes. Courage is catalyst to many different things! I enjoyed your post very much.:)

  4. Not many people give enough credit to courage. Your points are great and give a great trait some attention it deserves!
