Always Speak Up
What brave people are not is loud or boisterous, but whenever there’s something to say, they’ll speak up. What’s more important is when and how they say it.
Becoming brave doesn’t mean being a bully or annoyingly egotistical. Brave leaders lead with tact and empathy, this because it’s their nature of what they say carries weight and influence.
Brave leaders understand that silence can often be the greatest statement that they can make, and they’ll use it judiciously. They know action speaks louder than words, so they’ll just say what needs to be said, knowing that the silence can derail them.
Know Your Strengths
And more importantly your flaws. There’s a difference between being brave and being careless. What brave leaders have is a strong sense of self-awareness. They know when to take action, and when they’re out of their element.
They’ll minimize the risk by reassessing themselves while engaging in others to accommodate for their weaknesses. So to become brave, be more self-aware of yourself. Engage with others who can complement your strengths while compensating for your weaknesses.
Using Action With Knowledge
Brave leaders will always take action, take the next step, yet they’re not considered rash. They’ll apply action once they do their due diligence and completely understand the situation.
What brave leaders do is make sure that their actions lead towards success, so they’ll investigate before taking charge and going into battle. So improve the odds of you succeeding by doing your homework, learn, as doing so will increase the odds of winning.
Keeping Your Priorities Straight
Someone who constantly jumps into doing something without a plan isn’t being brave, they’re being foolish. Brave people know exactly what their objectives are, and will prioritize them clearly.
Then they can be brave since they’re able to recognize the right opportunities once they come along. So know precisely what you need to accomplish, which will move you and your team towards your goal. Avoid distracting activities which won’t help you or your task at hand.
Those who are brave recognizes that being successful just once isn’t enough to sustain or imprint their leadership. So what they’ll do is work towards creating a series of “wins” which will help them and others generate power and confidence.
They know when to increase their energy to drive forward and when to allow the momentum that they’ve generated to automatically propel itself forward towards efficiently.
So what you need to do is craft your own plan so that each action you take, builds momentum and then takes advantage of the previous success.
Make sure that you generate momentum by taking advantage of any and all the smaller wins which garners you respect and attention. Activate and cultivate all of your relationships, and always be building buzz.
Validating All Your Wins
What the majority of people will do is just sit and wait for the right or perfect opportunity to come along, this before they’re willing to step up and take some form of action.
Usually, most often, that “right” opportunity never presents itself. What brave people understand is that most situations are rarely perfect from the beginning, they need tweaking.
What they do is make the most of any given situation which can lead towards success, even if it’s even a small one. Cumulatively, what these small consistent wins can lead towards are bigger wins.
So begin by winning all of your smaller battles, the one’s which you know you can win. Develop a plan, and then take action. What winning builds is confidence along with improving your reputation.
Learning From Failure
No one’s comfortable with failure or enjoys failing, but what the brave leaders understands is that the bigger the reward, the greater the risk that they need to take.
They also know how to mitigate catastrophic risks while protecting themselves and their team. Brave leaders know how to manage risk to their advantage. They’ll harness the energy and the adrenaline, ensuring that they can learn from every failure.
So make failure an expected and an acceptable part of the process. Make sure that you know how to analyze, assess, and then limit the mistakes, so that any misstep which occurs is kept at a minimum. Then learn, reboot, and try again.
