8 Really Effective Tricks to Boost Your Courage

8 Really Effective Tricks to Boost Your Courage | Positive futures | Scoop.it

Is fear holding you back from trying something new or going after what you really want? Here are some ways to get past it.

 

I hate fear. Fear has cost me a hefty sum in dental bills from grinding my teeth. Fear interferes with sleep, digestion, and many other things that make life worth living. When you examine some of the worst things human beings have done, you'll often find fear as the root cause. There's no doubt about it: Fear sucks.

 

Here's what's worked best for me over the years. (And if you've found something else that works, I'd love to hear it!)

1. Ask yourself: Should I take action to solve this fear?

As the old saying goes: "A picture is worth a thousand words." This also reminds me of Malcomb Gladwell's book, "Blink." Amazon: http://amzn.to/13AalVQ

It's all about images now. 

Bruce McDuffee's curator insight, August 20, 2013 2:53 PM

It's important to keep in mind your audience and how the ideal prospect likes to consume content.  Scientists or engineers for example my consume or respect different media than consumers of clothing or electronics.

Most of us assume that when we try to solve problems, we're drawing on the logical parts of our brains. But, in fact, great strategists seem to draw on the emotional and intuitive parts of their brain much more.

Pierre Gauthier's curator insight, April 29, 5:33 PM

This is an excellent summary of research on problem - solving and the brain.  Huge implications for all leaders.  And the role of attention control is undeniable. A good read. 

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s curator insight, June 24, 4:06 PM

Good WSJ article on leadership and decision-making: "Take much of what you know about how  executives make decisions. Now, forget it." New brain research shows most of what we thought we know about executive decision making is wrong

BRAIN POWER: From Neurons to Networks

BRAIN POWER: From Neurons to Networks is a 10-minute film and accompanying TED Book (ted.com/tedbooks) from award-winning Director Tiffany Shlain and her team at The Moxie Institute. Based on new research on how to best nurture children's brains from Harvard University's Center on the Developing Child and University of Washington's I-LABS, the film explores the parallels between a child's brain development and the development of the global brain of Internet, offering insights into the best ways to shape both. Made through a new crowd-sourcing creativity process the Moxie team calls "Cloud Filmmaking," Brain Power was created by putting into action the very ideas that the film is exploring: the connections between neurons, networks, and people around the world.
