How to Use Courage to Make the Right Life Changes


It takes courage to make positive changes to your life. However, it’s not courageous to allow yourself to be coerced by others to make those changes. In any case, all life-changes you make must be based on your personal happiness wrapped in the clothing of a greater good. You can never attain long-term happiness if it’s not based on love, compassion, humility, and gratitude. This article is about establishing and using courage the right way to improve your life and help others in the process.

Understanding Courage

Courage is about bravery. It helps you take risks to a brighter future that you usually wouldn’t take. When you establish courage, you put fear behind you. Bravery is the process of admitting that you have anxieties, yet you’re willing to determine a way to beat those fears and not let them control you. It’s ok to experience your fears at suitable times. Nonetheless, fear should not be allowed to dominate your life.

When someone lacks courage, it usually has something to do with another person, group, or organisation instilling fear in him/her to do things the way of those second parties. When you establish courage, you’ll learn to self-direct yourself in life. You’ll learn to accept penalty and rewards graciously. A courageous individual will frequently feel motivated to accept blame and responsibility while critiquing their actions and utilising what they learn to move forward. Brave individuals will step to the front, instead of stepping back when opportunities come their way. On the other hand. A brave individual will step back and take a view of his or her errors gracefully.

It’s All About Continuous Improvement

A person prepared to better his/her life will remain calm. This individual will stay relax even when plans fail. For example, if there a tornado the next day, the individual will carry sunshine in their pockets to get started again immediately. Or, to occupy his or her time and feel just as happy until they can continue.

To become successful and improve your life, you’ll need to learn how to believe in you. When you trust you, you are able to trust the right people also. Regrettably, we live in a disloyal world where trust is difficult to find, yet when you trust yourself, you can’t blame other people when things go wrong. This is why when you make changes in life they must be conceived by you and no one else. No one will ever have your personal interest at heart better than you do. So never put your happiness or well-being in the hands of others. Your happiness is no one else responsibility but yours. Do you now see why it is so vital to say “no” to willful “wrong-doings”? Never allow others to coerce you how to be happy. They can’t make you happy. Nor, do they have the right to force you into anything against your “will”. You need to be guarded against such “emotional blackmail”.

Finally, do not confuse “sharing your happiness” with “being happy the way others want you to be”. You must always be prepared to share the joy of your happiness. But never be egotistical and dictate the way others should choose to be happy.

How to Do It

Bettering your life includes utilising your creative and critical mind. When you can produce fresh ideas, you’re on the road to success. You’ve many options in this world; it takes you to pull up resources to find those opportunities.

Occasionally in life, we feel uncomfortable and discouraged. In fact, this is quite common. It can happen if you allow yourself to be surrounded by negative people and surroundings.

Are you willing to accept and rectify your irritations? Maybe with your spouse or family, you feel at a lost. Are you willing to accept your personal shortfalls and discover the correct way to make your life better?

The greatest courage you need to attain your personal happiness and improve your life is the ability to rid your life of negative people and influences. Consider Jackson’s from Trinidad, West Indies, on the matter:

“Family and friends were always telling me my wife is no go for me. They never liked her because she was strong and clear about her goals in life. She could not be controlled emotionally or spiritually. They never once focused on her good qualities. It was always about her weaknesses. It didn’t hit me until I realised they were constantly asking me to punish her for the same things they were guilty of doing and condoning in their lives. The reality was they wanted me to control me on their terms.”

Here’s the bottom line. By all means, make changes to improve your life and happiness. Everyone should! Nevertheless, they must be first and foremost for your benefit. It’s that simple. Next, the changes must be heavily interwoven with love, gratitude, forgiveness, compassion, and humility. No cannot make positive changes in your life without those qualities being dominant in your actions and thoughts.


It takes courage to make positive changes to your life. It requires you to be brave. Nonetheless, you are not perfect. Neither is anyone in this world. So you will be prone to making mistakes from time to time. Simply learn from them and move on. Remember, positive changes and happiness can only come about with you taking personal responsibility for your motivations and actions. Do not blame others for your failures. Likewise, do not allow others to degrade you if you fail. If they do, they are not worthy of time or energy. Good people will show compassion and support you with up-building words. You must always have the courage to view failure as part of your journey towards your goals. See them as lessons learnt to put right in the immediate future. You can do it!
