Looking how to have a boost of courage as you face some changes this year? Here are 4 points that Lee advises his clients to follow – let us know what you think:
- Believe. You must believe that your decision is the right thing to do and that you can do it. Believe in yourself, take personal ownership, and enlist some courageous accountability from others.
- Plan. Be intentional and plan how you want to move forward. Review the steps with some people that you trust to give good feedback.
- Act. Make a choice and step out. Lean into the pain of your doubts and fears and do what you know is right, even when it doesn’t feel natural or safe. This is my definition of leading with honor.
- Follow-Through. Walk out your plan and stay committed. Coach yourself daily or even moment-by-moment if it’s required. Ask those people you trust to check in on your progress on a regular basis. Accountability from others is often crucial to success when we are following through on tough decisions or changing habits.
Lee also advises making your plan unique to your natural behavior. If you’re an extrovert, get help to create and build structure around your plan; if you’re an introvert, coach yourself on building and connecting with your support network.
