Taking Action in the Midst of Fear and Uncertainty

These days we’re all dealing with a lot of fear and uncertainty due to the circumstances we’ve faced for months now and that we will continue to face for months to come. It’s unsettling and frustrating.

Depending on the specifics of your personal situation, the level of fear and uncertainty you are going through could be more than at any previous time in your life.

Personally speaking, it has been for me. The last few months have been the hardest I’ve ever faced.

But I have to find a way to push through the fear and uncertainty in order to keep moving forward and to not let circumstances dictate my attitude and perspective on the future.

Easier said than done though, right? So how do we get through it?

At the end of the day, it comes down to courage. Good old fashioned courage.

Recently, I read a quote about courage that really stuck with me.

“Courage is doing what you’re afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you’re scared.”

Eddie Rickenbacker, World War I Hero

“There can be no courage unless you’re scared.” What a great reminder that you don’t attain courage and then suddenly you’re not afraid anymore. No, you will always have some level of fear, but it takes courage to push through that fear. To not give up. To not lose hope.

I don’t know about you, but I want to become more courageous as I face the uncertain days ahead. I want to keep pushing through the fear while maintaining an attitude and belief that better days are ahead.

I recently recorded a podcast episode where I talked about this topic further. I hope that it encourages and challenges you.
