I was reminiscing recently about our December conference in Hilton Head.
We don’t host it anymore, but one moment made a lasting impact on me, and certainly touched many of the practitioners attending, too.
It’s a song called If I Were Brave, by Jana Stanfield. Jana, a talented singer/songwriter, performed this inspiring song at a couple of our conferences.
It asks each of us what we would do today if we had the courage to do it.
Take a moment to listen – I think you’ll like some of the real-life bravery “stories” in this video.
When I hear Jana’s words in this song, I can’t help but reflect on my own issues with bravery.
You see, we often expect our clients to change their behavior. We want them to try new things, get past their limits, and push themselves to make a change.
This is at the heart of the work we do.
But when it comes to looking at our own lives in the same light, that’s where many of us recoil a bit at the thought of big risks … and big change.
Now, I want you to ask the question. What new direction would you head in “if you were brave?” Are there ways in which you currently stop yourself from taking risks? Do you have beliefs about yourself or about the world that hold you back?
Please leave a comment below and tell us what you would do today if you were brave.
