Have you ever felt like the struggle to be courageous is more daunting than you can handle? What if you only had to push through your fear for 10 seconds in order to get to the other side of it? That’s what author Garrett Gravesen is proposing in his new book 10 Seconds of Insane Courage.
Identifying your fears is the crucial first step in overcoming them. A different perspective gives us hope of what life can be if we boldly, tenaciously choose a better response in those 10 Seconds of Insane Courage.
We are all faced with fears. Some fears are small, others can be completely paralyzing. The trick is to choose courage instead of allowing your fears to keep you from experiencing your best life ever.
“The best things in life are on the other side of maximum fear.” – Will Smith
When you choose courage, your fears can become an exciting challenge. You are no longer victimized, you become a champion.
