Two Minute Drill: Bravery
What’s up Kaizenovators, happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill! Since yesterday we celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday, today’s topic of conversation is all about bravery.
Dr. Martin Luther King’s Birthday
So, this is really fitting because yesterday we celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday as a national holiday. Fun fact, his birthday is actually January the 15th, however, we celebrated it yesterday.
For me, Dr. Martin Luther King exemplifies bravery. He literally risked his life for the cause of equality, civil rights, and justice. Now, while we are clearly not nearly as far along as a society and humanity as we should be, hopefully, one day we will be, Dr. Martin Luther King is the anchor of that movement of equality, justice, and civil rights. To be that anchor it requires a tremendous amount of bravery. To be that brave, you also have to know the flip side of that coin, which is fear. To be able to overcome that fear mentally, emotionally, physically and show the bravery and the courage that he showed to move the cause forward, is truly remarkable.
It’s really interesting because at least for me, sometimes, we demonstrate bravery and we don’t even know where it comes from. We just somehow react or don’t think, and we do things that are brave. Sometimes, I know there are opportunities where I can be braver and I’m not. This two-minute drill got me thinking about being more aware of those opportunities and finding ways to be braver in my professional life and my personal life. So, this week I’m going to look for those opportunities to overcome my fears and become braver and I would love for you to do the same.
So that’s this week’s Two Minute Drill. Let’s go out there and be brave.
Head over to our Facebook page and let us know how do you overcome your fears and become braver?
