Four Types of Courage We Must Practise for Us to Easily Achieve Greatness

Published

on

On my quest for discovering the Science of Getting Rich, I realized that courage is a crucial determinant of greatness.

In addition, I realized that courage can be divided into four forms which we must practice for us to succeed.

Are you ready to learn about these forms of courage?

Guess you are ready.

Here are the four types of courage we need to practice for us to succeed.

1.The Courage to Implement

Most of us have huge plans on how we’ll make it in life. We also have ideas which we believe will make us great. However, few of us implement these plans/ideas because implementation needs courage.

The courage to implement enables us to turn plans into reality. It’s the courage we need for us to take the first step on the journey to greatness. Without this form of courage, we’ll never succeed because we’ll never start.

2.The Courage to Persevere

The second type of courage is the courage to persevere. Most of us fear obstacles and thus give up when they arrive.

Only the folks with the courage to persevere continue moving towards greatness even when obstacles appear. These individuals embrace obstacles and fearlessly overcome them.

3.The Courage to Take Risks

This type of courage is also necessary on the journey to greatness because people who take risks have high chances of succeeding in life. We fear taking risks because we often overestimate that everything might go wrong. Only the courageous take risks believing that risk-taking will pay off.

4.The Courage to Step Out in Faith

Lastly, I also discovered that greatness requires us to have the courage to take a step even when success is uncertain. Many great people reveal they had the courage to set a big goal and move towards it with no guarantee they’ll achieve it.

Therefore, if we want greatness to knock at our doorsteps, we must have the courage to take bold steps towards our dreams even when we are skeptical about our success.

We don’t have to be 100 % sure about the success of our endeavors, we just need to have faith and step into the unknown.

The Statistics of the Dead and Why I Choose to be Grateful

The Statistics of the Dead and Why I Choose to be Grateful

If more than 150,000 people die every month, and today none of your friends or family members is dead, then you have a big reason to smile.’ – Sadhguru, Indian Mystic

Before falling in love with esoteric philosophy, I used to be sad and angry about nothing. My focus on material possessions and the social status prevented me from noticing the infinite blessings I had.

I worried about not having more possessions than my friends, and I was angry at life because some people –who I thought were happy- despised me. This crap ended after I stumbled upon the above quote, meditated on it, and researched about the world’s death rates.

I discovered that more than 2,000 people die every day in car crashes, and, on average, about 1 million people die in road crashes every year. Besides car crashes, more than 2.5 million people die from diseases every year. In total, about 40 million people die every year

Moreover, I realized that the world has lost about 30 million people from January 1st, 2019 to July 15th, 2019.

These statistics enlightened me that more than 5,000 people die every day, and therefore, more than 10,000 people mourn every day. It then dawned on me that I am a blessed person who must be happy every day because all my family members are alive.

As well, the death statistics reminded me of how stupid I was since I always worried about lacking replaceable things (a nice watch, car, sofa set, etc.), instead of being thankful because the most precious people in my life are alive. People who are more willing to help me than the rest of the world.

I, therefore, shifted my focus from worry to being grateful for the amazing irreplaceable people I had; the only magnificent beings who can go out of their way to help me.

For this reason, I smile every day when I wake up in the morning and fail to receive death news about my family members. I know I will lose my loved ones one day, but for this period, that they are alive, I know I have a BIG reason to be happy and thankful for the mysterious grace that keeps them alive.

May the Infinite Intelligence bless all your family members, and enlighten you about their importance in your life so that you love and be grateful for them.

May Peace of Mind be With You.

8 Major Reasons Why Ego is the Enemy

8 Major Reasons Why Ego is the Enemy

Ego is an exaggerated sense of self-importance. Although it has enabled many individuals to succeed, its side effects have made it the main cause of failure, hatred, separation, and all other negative factors. Here, I’ll enlighten you about the disadvantages of the ego by providing the eight major reasons why ego is the enemy.

1.Ego is Competitive

The ego makes you competitive because it wants you to be better than everyone else. It wants to feel important because it hates equality. This competitive mindset induced by the ego makes you less creative and impatient. Besides, it makes it difficult for you to collaborate with people to achieve a common goal.

2.Ego Prevents You From Focusing on the Process

It’s difficult to build your skills when you are egotistic because the ego focuses more on the end-goal than the process. It mostly cares about results, showing off, glory, and admiration, hence increasing your chances of failure.

3.Ego Prevents You From Making Friends

The ego prevents you from making friends because it makes you arrogant and self-centered. Few people love arrogant, and self-centered folks because they are prone to envy and hate. Furthermore, the ego prevents you from making friends because it loves dominating all conversations to prove that you know everything.

4.Ego makes you Overestimate Your Abilities

Ego makes you believe you can handle everything on your own hence preventing you from working with others. It also makes you unwilling to learn from other folks because it believes you know everything. Moreover, it eliminates the desire to improve your skills because it makes you think you are too skilled for improvement.

5.Ego Makes you Give up Easily

The ego focuses on the outcome and therefore makes you give up easily when you don’t get the desired outcome after a certain period. Moreover, it wants quick success and will thus make it difficult for you to embrace patience when success seems far.

6.Ego results in Poor Decision Making

The ego desires acknowledgment and acceptance. For this reason, it results in you making decisions that align with the need for glory and fame instead of making decisions that will help build your career or improve your skills. Besides this, it prevents you from asking for advice when making important decisions because it makes you excessively arrogant.

7.The Ego Makes You Judgmental

The ego loves judging people so that it feels better than them. It makes you focus on finding faults with other people so that you feel superior to them.

Judging is bad because it disconnects you from love hence preventing you from aligning with Infinite Intelligence, which is a loving power.

8.The Ego Leads to Envy

The ego makes you believe you are the only one who deserves progress hence making you envious when you see other people make progress.

Conclusions

That being said, you must learn to control your ego because its negative effects can lead to unhappiness and prevent you from making progress.
