We realize how courageous we are when being courageous is the only option we have.
Once you burn all your boats is when you realize you have to learn to swim. Ex tempore.
I had decided to take up public speaking in early 2020, after stepping down from the position of CEO of nearbuy towards the end of 2019.
Then COVID happened, and bam, all public events got cancelled!
A friend, while on a call, suggested that I teach what I know (entrepreneurship) online.
Because I had already burned the boats, and did not have cash beyond three months, I gave it a shot!
Because I had nothing to lose, the courage helped me to not lose myself.
Because I had no option other than courage, that courage opened up many options for me!
When courage is the only option, it never gives up on us, if we never give up on it!
