The Simple Secret to Moving Forward in Life With Courage

Updated on July 13, 2014

New Adventures

New beginnings help you to exercise your full potential and do things you never thought you could do. It's like learning to fly; everyone says it's impossible, but you try anyway.

Right this moment, there is someone in the world who is beginning a brand new chapter their life. Maybe that someone is you, maybe that someone is me, and maybe that someone is a person you have never met. Nevertheless, someone is experiencing it, just as everyone does at one time or another.

It is during times like these that we realize some very important things about life. We suddenly understand that we have our whole lives ahead of us, stretching out for miles with possibilities and opportunities abounding. Our optimism gets the best of us and we see things with great ease, and nothing can stand in our way.

But then comes the fear. With our newly developed understanding, we are now also able to catch sight of the obstacles and complications that hinder us from traveling effortlessly forward to our goals. We become worried that all our hopes were nothing but a silly daydream and that brings us to stalemate. There are so many ways that the future could play out, but there are also so many ways that it could come crashing down as well.

Then we search inside ourselves for an answer, wondering, how in the world can we go on? What will give us the courage to move forward?

What will set us free?


The only thing that will break you free from your doubt is passion. You need to decide what is most important to you, what you care about more than anything else in the world. Physically spell out your priorities and create a manifesto for yourself, describing who you are and what you live for.

Find out what you are passionate about, because passion is the number one driving force needed to fuel any person towards their goals and ambitions.

The importance of cultivating passion in individuals is getting more and more insignificant to the world as time goes on, because it is an attribute that is a threat to growing society. If no one had passion, then the world would be nothing more than a robotic zoo, being controlled by the most elite of society...even more so than it already is today.

So the secret is...

It's the only way to live the ife you love.

Once you know what your passions are, what you love more than anything, there is only one thing left to do. Take initiative and do it. It is really as simple as that. There is no huge procedure with fifty steps, telling you exactly how to get to your dreams. The process is so much less complicated than that: find out what it is that you love, and do it. This will always get you where you are meant to be.

Of course there are always going to be those bad days where nothing seems to be going right, and everything that makes you happy is crumbling before your eyes, but everyone has those days. Hell, it seems like I am always having those days. But the thing about bad days is that they pass. Maybe not always in the time that we want, but they always do. You just have to keep your chin up, and do what makes you happy, because in the end, it’s your actions that define you. So I say, make your actions count, and be in charge of your own definition.
