What is Your Courage Quotient?

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Have you ever wanted to be more brave, courageous, and bold?

Think of what you could do if you had the courage to step out on a limb and push beyond your fears?

When it comes to my personal level of courage, I have came a long way over the last few years. I am willing to take more risks, push beyond my self-imposed limitations, and expand my view of what is possible in life.

Still, I’m always interested in how I can be more confident, determined, and steadfast as I pursue further aspirations.

I was fortunate to come across a new book that provides the insight and information about how to do just this.

The book is called The Courage Quotient by psychologist Robert Biswas-Diener. Dr. Biswas-Diener is known as the “Indiana Jones of Positive Psychology,” and I have been a huge fan of his work in the field of positive psychology coaching.

His new book explores what psychological research is revealing about how to increase courage and be braver person, and below is an interview where we delve deeper into his new book and the science of courage.

How to Nurture a Courageous Mindset

Courage isn’t a virtue that we just all of sudden wake up with one day. It takes life-long experience and intentional awareness to walk with courage.

For many people this happens naturally as we try new things, push ourselves outside of our comfort zone, and grow in our relationships, career, and spirituality.

I’m sure you’ve noticed that what you used to fear no longer causes you the same level of anxiety or concern.

When we face our fears we learn that they weren’t as menacing and paralyzing as we once thought.

We are able to conquer them and in doing so can become more courageous.

We learn that much of our fear is simply:

  • False
  • Evidence
  • Appearing
  • Real
