Is Trusting The Person You Are Becoming

Courage + Strength

Courage + strength, its armour, is not fear that stands in the way of bold leadership. When times are complicated, do we ease into Courage and Strength and become curious, or do we self-protect in ways that lead us towards fear?

Our struggles reveal the true essence of our spirit. Sometimes we need to be stripped back and stretched out to let shine the truth of our being.

 “Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.” Khalil Gibran – Quotes On Strength

It takes a lot of armour always to be the “knower” or always to be correct. It’s defensiveness, posturing, and, most of all, it’s a major source of nonsense. It’s also very common—most of us have a certain amount of know-it-all in us. Unfortunately, wanting to know more makes the knowers and everyone around them sad. It breeds mistrust, poor decisions, and needless, counterproductive conflict.

It may seem simple to replace the armour of learning with that of a curious learner, but for many people, the desire to be a knower is motivated by guilt and, in some cases, trauma. Being the knower can save people in tough circumstances, and it’s easy to think that being the knower is the only important we bring to our relationships and jobs.

When only certain people are valued as knowers, knowing may become a cultural issue. Others refrain from speaking up because they aren’t “senior enough” or it’s “not their position.” To find your voice and to value yourself, and grow courage and strength.

Three tactics work to move from understanding always to discover.

1. Identify the issue. It’s a difficult discussion, but being straightforward is kind: I’d like you to develop your curiosity and critical thinking skills. You are frequently fast to respond, which can be beneficial, however asking the right questions is more advantageous, which is how you can develop as a leader.  

“A brave man acknowledges the strength of others.” -Veronica Roth – Quotes On Strength.

Bringing down others does not make you more strong. Lifting someone like you would like to be raised in your times of need is where the courageous will always triumph.

2. Make improving “curiosity skills” a top priority. Some people are naturally curious, while others must be taught how to be more curious. Please don’t say that people aren’t interested because they don’t care. They do not know how to be inquisitive.

“It is good to love many things for therein lies true power, and whoever loves more works much and can achieve much, and what is accomplished in love is well done.” -Vincent Van Gogh – 

Courage + Strength Quotes

To love is to be courageous, and to act from love is to achieve greatness. Spend your life doing the things you enjoy, and let your passions lead you on an exciting journey.

3. Recognise and reward excellent questions and instances of “I don’t know, but I’d like to find out” as courageous leadership behaviours. The important distinction here is between trying to “be right” and wanting to “get it right.”

Curiosity + willingness to wrestle with vulnerability + practise = grounded trust. Although our biggest impediment to being courageous is armour, grounded faith is at the core of bold leadership.

“And one must recognise that bravery is not the lack of fear, but rather the courage to go forwards in the face of fear.” -Paulo Coelho – Courage + Strength Quotes.

Do not waste your time trying to overcome your fears. Instead, acknowledge them and go on your way.
