The courage to try something new

Nonprofit Motivation

You know that feeling you get?

You feel it right in your gut…

You’ve happened upon a new idea and on the surface it makes perfect sense…

It might even be brilliant.

So you championed the idea and got the nod to move forward.

But then…

Right there…

In your gut…

Doubt creeps in.

Your mind starts to race…

You wonder if this was such a good idea after all.

You wonder if there is still time to pull back, reverse course…

Fear kicks in…

What if it fails?

It would be my fault…

I’ll have let everyone down…

It could do more harm than good.

Should I do this?

Can I do this?

Your heart rate picks up.

You realize you’re starting to panic.

“Wait,” You say.

Take a deep breath…

Calm yourself…

Steel your nerves…

And right then…at that moment…

That is when it’s make or break.

You either give up, turn your back, play it safe and walk away…

Or…

You find your courage.

You decide to go for it.

You will do this no matter what happens.

You are committed to its success.

You will do what it takes.

You will make it work.

You are capable.

You are adaptable.

You are in control.

You are ready.

You have the courage.

Today, you will do something new.

And it will make all the difference.

Take a breath…

Calm yourself…

Steel your nerves…

And go…
