If I Were Brave – I chose this as a motivational song because of its message. One of the biggest reasons why people don’t achieve their goals is fear. They don’t take the necessary actions because of fear. Fear causes people to think small so that there’s a lesser chance of being disappointed.
This song asks the question, “What would you do if you were brave?” If you knew you could not fail, what would you attempt to accomplish? Too many hopes and dreams are buried due to fear. They say that we are only born with 2 fears. Fear of falling and loud noises. All other fears are learned. What made up fear are you letting hold you back from your dreams?
The answer is life did. The setbacks we face in life can cause us to fear the disappointment of failing. Failing sucks and is an experience most of us don’t want. At the same time, it’s an experience that’s necessary to help us grow.
Being brave doesn’t mean you’re not scared of failure. Being brave means you recognize the fear but you move forward anyway. The more you take action, the less you’ll feel fearful. It may never go away completely but you’ll have greater control over it.
