Courage enables you to successfully overcome your fears and face any life challenge with willpower, bravery and resilience, making you more experienced, stronger, confident and happy along the way.
1. Overall life satisfaction
Courage has a powerful effect on your well being, increasing your sense of happiness by enabling you to live a life of excitement, adventure and strength.
2. Enhanced resilience

3. Mental well-being
Acting courageously in the face of challenges helps reduce stress and anxiety levels as you are able to successfully overcome your inner fears.
4. Confidence boost
By overcoming your fear and doing something outside of your comfort zone, you feel more empowered and trusting of your abilities, achieving a feeling of greater personal competence and inner worth.
5. Increased chances of success
Courageous people are more likely to take risks, follow their dreams and seize opportunities, making them far more likely to succeed in reaching all of their goals.
6. Courage will become your best friend
The more courageous you are, the more confident you will feel. It’ll take more to bring you down than usual.
The first step to leading a courageous life is setting goals - they can be as big as you want, just make sure they are truly aligned with what you want out of your life as they will keep you focused and lead you in the right way, which is especially important when we encounter obstacles or challenges.
Face your fears
When faced with a difficult challenge that scares you, first give fear space to show itself, allowing yourself to feel it and fully accept it. Then, you can use the powerful energy of emotions to face your obstacles with even more momentum and strength.
Step out of your comfort zone
The quickest way to become courageous is by diving into the unknown. Break your daily routine by trying something new or going on a daring adventure.
Choose courage instead of fear
Acknowledge your fear. It’s alright that you’re feeling some fear. Trying to repress it so that you don’t feel it at all will only make it get bigger and scarier. Feel the fear. Sit with it for a bit. Then let it go.
Dig deep. Sometimes it doesn’t take much, but sometimes you really have to go pretty deep within yourself to find the courage to face a scary situation. You have to be willing to go through a few layers that may not be so comfortable in order to get to that layer of pure bravery that you’re after.
Listen to your intuition. Your intuition knows. Once you’ve dug down deep, you’ll be able to listen to your intuition without any of that other static that fear can produce.
Keep your head up. Want to feel confident? Then look confident. Don’t ever face a problem with your head down. Always keep your chin held high and face the world surrounding you.
Don’t stop trying. It might take more than one go to find the courage it takes to face a certain problem. But persistence and courage go hand in hand and once you solve your problem, you’ll feel that much better about yourself for sticking with it.
Questions to ask yourself to bring courage into play include
- What am I actually afraid of? Is it the right thing to be afraid of? Should I be this afraid of it – or rationally, should I be less or more afraid?
- What harm can this thing actually do to me or others?
- What are the things that could happen as a result of my actions and/or inactions?
- What is the worst that could happen has a result of my actions and/or inactions?
- What are the risks to me and to others?
- Courage gives us the strength to evaluate an emotional response (fear) and act rationally and rightly.
