Be Brave!

Be Brave! Well that's easier said than done, right? We have faced so many challenges in 2020, and at times it seems like it just keeps getting worse as the year goes on. This has made many of us afraid to take on new challenges, make changes in our life, start a new business (like myself), or even do simple things like go to the grocery store or spend time with family and friends. It's time that we stand up and just BE BRAVE!

I will admit that I was scared to death about starting my HR consultant business, but I did it! I was also scared of moving out of my home office and leasing my first professional office space for my business, but I did it! Fear is GOOD! Don't let your fear stop you from doing all that you want - big or small.......Just BE BRAVE!

I hope that this simple little message resonates with you, and sparks a fire deep down that helps you stand-up and say "I am not going to be afraid anymore. It's time for me to BE BRAVE". Whatever it is that you are afraid of.....LET IT GO! Start that new business. Make that career change. Run that marathon. Just BE BRAVE! I believe in you and you should believe in yourself!

I will leave you with this poem by Edgar Albert Guest titled "It Couldn't Be Done".

Somebody said that it couldn't be done

But he with a chuckle replied

That "maybe it couldn't", but he would be the one

Who wouldn't say so til he'd tried.

So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin

On his face. If he worried he hid it.

He started to sing as he tackled the thing

That couldn't be done, and he did it!

Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you'll never do that;

At least no one ever has done it;"

But he took off his coat and he took off his hat

And the first thing we knew he'd begun it.

With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,

Without any doubting or quiddit,

He started to sing as he tackled the thing

That couldn't be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,

There are thousands to prophesy failure,

There are thousands to point out to you one by one,

The dangers that wait to assail you.

But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,

Just take off your coat and go to it;

Just start in to sing as you tackle the thing

That "cannot be done", and you'll do it.
