Monday Morning Courage

March 9, 2009

Being an entrepreneur takes courage. Courage to take a dream and make it a reality. Courage to test our abilities. Courage to do the impossible. Sometimes on Monday mornings, women entrepreneurs need alittle bit more courage to do the things they don’t want to do or have been avoiding. It takes courage to  make hard sales calls, to ask for discounts from vendors, to launch a new product, or to walk away from a bad client. Here is some inspiration to help you be courageous this Monday morning.

Courage begins with an inward battle: It is often said “Courage isn’t an absence of fear – it’s doing what you are afraid to do.”  Women entrepreneurs are tough, resilient, smart thinkers. We understand that doubt and fear are a part of living, but we push through knowing we have more strengthen and determination inside of us than fear. Courage is our middle name. Don’t forget we must try to do the things we know we must.

Courage in a leader inspires commitment from followers: The most respectable women business owners I know are courageous women who are surrounded by other women who respect them. Their ‘followers’ are their dedicated employees, staunch supporters, business allies and strategic partners. These courageous leaders attract supporters because of their desire for excellence, perserverance and an unrelenting believe in their mission. Courage by a leader inspires. Touch base with someone who inspires you to gain some extra courage this morning.

Your life expands to your level of courage: A Roman historian once said, “The desire for safety stands against every great and noble enterprise.”  Women entrepreneurs open doors, advance their entrepreneurial vision and succeed quicker when they are courageous. Nothing is impossible. The sky is the limit. Do something bold today to shake-up your world by being courageous. You can do it.
