Where is your courage today? Hiding out for the day it seems safe? You are going to be waiting a long time. There is no such time or space where it is safe. In the board room or on your battle field, the world is looking for leaders and people with courage. Often times the answer is action, regardless of the threat. This in itself is a sign to show your foe that you are aware of the threat and will not only respond, but retaliate.
It takes courage to pursue the unpopular agenda. Whether it is to save lives, save investors, or save precious physical or digital assets, the game is the same. Those who decide to do nothing in the face of an obvious threat have nothing but paralysis. Those who decide to do something dig deep to find the purpose and justification for their actions. Once you find courage, it's very hard to turn the other way. Paralysis becomes so foreign that whenever you feel even a little unresponsive, you compensate the other direction almost by instinct.
If you spend enough time around courageous people it starts to rub off on you. If you still don't have the bug, then you must not be surrounding yourself with those who can take fear by storm. What are you afraid of?
As Steve Farber would say, you need some more OS!M's....
Once you have enough of these to know that you won't freeze, then you are well on your way to really making a difference on this rock. If you are not there yet, then now is a good time to start speeding up your OS!M's.
