I sometimes question my courage.
The courage that is needed to raise a child
is certainly different from what is needed to
get out of bed in the morning. Some of us
have a hard time even doing that at times.
I remember when my children were approaching
driving age and each one told me that they did
not want to learn to drive. I was perplexed
because the minute I turn 15 ½ I couldn’t
wait to get behind the wheel of a car.
But when I asked them why, this is what they said,
“There are a lot of crazy drivers out there and
I don’t want to be out there with them.”
Mind you, they had no problem sitting in the
passenger seat as I drove them everywhere.
I’m thinking, at this point, it’s because they
felt safe from all the crazy drivers as long as
I was doing the driving.
I’ll take that compliment any day.
Most of us will agree that the courage needed
to speak in front of a group of people compared
to, well… almost anything- is completely unique.
There are lots of different reasons for why we are
scared to death of public speaking and all of them are valid.
Yet, if you think about it, don’t we find the courage
to do what we must do to get what we ultimately want?
Your BIG why just needs to be bigger then your fear.
It also can help if someone else is in the drivers seat
until your ready to fly on your own.
More good stuff on:
PS. All three of my children’s fear of crazy drivers disappeared
when they moved out and needed to transport themselves.
