Courage Changes All: Bolster's motto. Being courageous is central to our working method because we challenge each other and our customers to seek out discomfort. This takes courage. But what is being brave? How can you apply this in your daily life?
In this article we tell you 5 powerful ways to show more courage.
Being brave: what does this mean for Bolster?
To develop yourself you will have to break patterns. Imbalance often results from holding on to a comfortable or safe feeling. In order to connect reason and emotion, you will have to let go of the habit of clinging to this comfortable feeling. Stepping out of this comfort zone can be stressful and requires a certain amount of courage.
1. Know your strengths
It sounds so simple, but knowing what you are good at helps boost your confidence. When you're confident in your abilities, you're much more willing to go all-in when an opportunity arises.
When you struggle with anxiety and want to build more courage into your life, it is natural to focus on your shortcomings and your weaknesses. Take a look at what you can do and what your strengths are.
2. Keep things in perspective
Don't look at your fears as something bad. Take the time to look at your tension and understand why it is there. Some things are also uncomfortable, difficult or exciting. Accept that this is the case and realize that being brave sometimes also lies in looking that tension in the eye.
3. Explore different scenarios
Think about the worst and best case scenarios. The worst that can realistically happen is often minimal compared to what you can gain from trading. Compare the pluses and minuses and you will see that it is worth taking that step out of your comfort zone.
If you feel overwhelmed, confused, or stuck, look for ways to reduce the stress. Have you ever felt brave when you were stressed? Taking a break every now and then is a great way to relieve stress and find some space in your mind.
5. Make mistakes
The last and perhaps most important tip: don't be afraid to fail. Embrace the experience of failure: This means that you have taken risks and stepped outside your comfort zone.
Making mistakes allows you to learn something new, change direction and see what you are made of. See mistakes as a welcome experience, despite the risks involved. It stretches you to try new things.
