Beyond The Realm Of Fear, Lies Victory- Have The Courage To Navigate It

Courage is one step ahead of fear.”

Taking risks is a major aspect of living today. If you don’t take risks, the chances of you being successful go down quite exponentially. This is why we are taught to take risks, for, greater the risk, greater the reward. Now, how would one even be able to take that risk? By being courageous. Courage doesn’t mean being stupid- courage simply means knowing that there would be a lot of difficulties in the path they are walking, and yet not stepping back. You have to understand this- if you go beyond fear, you will be victorious.

But we know, saying it aloud is very easy, whereas showing it, in reality, isn’t. A person who is faced with the option of either walking through fire or going back would more often than not, take fire. And can you blame them? Why would you willingly want to endanger everything that you have ever stood for, simply because the rewards may be high? Well, it is because you are courageous. You have the confidence in your abilities, and the courage to face any adversities in your path. It seems quite convenient though, that you need to have both confidence and courage, but one can’t live without the other.

If you don’t have confidence in your abilities, how will you have the courage to go against every odds strewn in your path? How would you know that you would be able to overcome them? Similarly, if you don’t have the courage to face all those odds, what use is this confidence? This confidence comes only when you have done it once, when you have already displayed your courage and tested yourself to the limits. Confidence without courage and vice versa is pretty pointless, if you think about it.

And yet, we aren’t saying that it will be easy. The long road through fear doesn’t go away this easily. For, if it did, would you really be afraid? Wouldn’t you simply find yourself in the midst of paradise with everything at your beck and call? Imagine a situation- you are appearing for an elocution contest. You stand up on stage, you look at the teeming thousands watching your every move. Now, you are afraid, your legs are clammed up, and you are sweating from head to toe.

But in your subconscious, you know everything that you have to say. You have well-rehearsed it, you know everything there is to know. This fear, of people looking at you, can make you stumble, despite your confidence in your abilities. This is when you display your courage. This is when you take on the microphone and speak to the world aloud. You walk through the valley of fear, to come out a different individual.

Fear is dangerous, fear paralyzes us, fear makes us think of the worst of things. But fear is not invincible. All it needs is courage, will, and strength.

And some recklessness too. If you want to be victorious, take on the challenges by maintaining courage in your very self.
