Courage is an integral part of the self branding process. Many people confuse courage with reaching out or simply just being an anti-procrastinator. Perseverance in the eye of the beholder is essential for moving forward with the building of your brand. Courage, however, takes on a very different kind of problem. Many people actually keep themselves back from success when they finally do get the chance to reach out and make their self a rock star overnight. I have done this in the past.
Courage is what allows you to make that
phone call to your local news station and ask them to interview you. Courage is lashing out at high-profile people that steal your content or that talk down to you in public. Courage is what defines your human ability to take that flight or fight risk. Most importantly, courage is what will put food on your table. Build your courage.
