Please join in my 7th Travel Writing Contest about Bravery.
Please share a story about a place that inspires you to be brave and save the day.
In Chris Brogan‘s, It’s Not About the Tights: An Owners Manual on Bravery, he shares his definition of bravery as “not being afraid of yourself.”
He says: “You’ve got to use whatever past you came from as part of the origin story that shapes the hero you will become. Welcome to day one. You are the superhero you’ve been waiting for.” Enter now!
My recent article about Bravery: “YOU ARE THE AUTHOR OF YOUR STORY. YOU ARE THE HERO YOU’VE BEEN WAITING FOR. ACCEPT THAT YOU’RE THE ONE WHO WILL SOLVE YOUR CHALLENGES, AND THAT YOU ARE THE RIGHT PERSON FOR THE TASK.”
