Is there anything you want to achieve that is BIG and you are frightened to start? This method I am about to share works, and it may just work for you. It is the concept of building courage 20 seconds at a time. Benjamin Mea, the author of “We Bought a Zoo”, shared that his life motto is: “Sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come out of it”. He shared this as the concept around which he was able to face all his challenges and eventually end up buying a Zoo despite financial challenges.

The concept of building courage as a 20 seconds exercise of courage is based on the idea that taking small, manageable steps toward a larger goal can help build confidence and courage over time. The concept was first introduced by Shawn Achor, a positive psychology researcher, and author, in his book “The Happiness Advantage.”

The idea is to identify a goal or task that requires courage and then break it down into a small, manageable step that can be accomplished in 20 seconds or less. By focusing on taking action for just 20 seconds, the exercise can help to overcome the initial fear or resistance that may prevent us from taking action toward our goals.

For example, if someone is trying to build the courage to start exercising regularly, they might start by committing to just 20 seconds of exercise each day, such as doing a single push-up or taking a short walk around the block. Over time, as they build consistency and confidence, they can gradually increase the duration and intensity of their exercise routine.

This exercise can also be applied to other areas of life, such as public speaking, starting a new business, or making a difficult decision. By taking small, consistent steps toward our goals, we can build courage and confidence over time and eventually achieve greater success and fulfillment.

So, what BIG thing do you want to do? What representation of it can you do in 20 seconds? Start small, big is small compounded!

Kind Regards,
