Last week I had the opportunity to attend the Willow Creek Leadership Summit. One of the speakers was University of Houston professor, Brene Brown. You may have heard Brown’s Ted Talk that went viral in 2010.
One of the things Professor Brown said during her talk was that every leader needs to “Be brave.” She framed it up this way … “You can choose courage, or you can choose comfort, but you cannot choose both. They are mutually exclusive.”
So many times I want to be seen as courageous, but I’m unwilling to turn my back on comfort. Newsflash to self. YOU CAN’T HAVE BOTH!
As you approach this week, you can chase comfort, or you can choose courage. But remember, the two of them are mutually exclusive. You can’t have both.
What is one area where you need to show courage this week?
