Behaviors of Courageous Women

  • Courageous women keep pressing forward when they have been passed over at work. They restructure their goals, take charge and manifest a new vision. Whammy! They have reinvented themselves one more time. Settling is not an option. They know courage is an inside job, and “managing up” is the key to stepping up and taking control.
  • Courageous women face uncertainty head on. Feeling discouraged is unacceptable. When someone tries to undermine their purpose with the “too syndrome” (“too strong,” “too bright, “too determined,” or “too direct”…), they reclaim their dormant feminine energy—courage! Courage becomes their chief ally to face the challenges.
  • Courageous women recognize defining moments as they happen. Selling their soul or being a martyr to keep peace or maintain status quo is intolerable. These attitudes stifle courage. These women are proud of their individual courage when they are effective and forthright. They are eager to discover the next opportunity. They find themselves constantly asking, “What if I had unlimited courage?”
  • Courageous women recognize and subscribe to the behaviors of courage. “Know thyself” becomes the mantra that lights their path. They become role models to imprint courage for other women. Their unsung stories of everyday courage are proudly declared so all women can stand in the celebration. This flowing reservoir of courage is then passed on to their daughters, nieces, and the girl next door.
  • Courageous women “turn up” the quantity of courage—it’s the virtue they already possess! They investigate their hearts and realize their life’s purpose. They use the language of courage because they know their words describe their reality. They recognize the correlation between their success quotient and their courage quotient.
  • Courageous women know courage is about their make-up—that it is a fundamental part of their nature. They are free to act through the portal of their heart. Such actions embody the original definition of courage: “heart and spirit.”
