...One Ten Second Burst of Courage".

I love this quote.

In 10 seconds you can:

-Pick up the phone and make a call that scares you
-Hit the send button for an email asking for a joint venture
-Subscribe to something
-Ask someone to buy
-Decide to start something new
-Stop procrastianting something that's holding you back
-Ask someone on a date
-Take action on something that scares you
-Ask someone to marry you
...and a million more

Think about it. How much easier is it to have a burst of courage for just 10 seconds instead of thinking you need to have of courage all the time?

Ron

I think this qoute came from a movie called, "We Bought a Zoo." Never seen the movie but I hear Tony Robbins repeat the quote the other day.

    I love it! Such a cool spin on helping people to get passed fears.

    You also reminded me of something else related.

    Change can happen in an instant. That's why people should live in the moment as much as possible.

    When people worry about the future, they are worrying about things which are still imaginary. You really don't know what could happen next week, tomorrow, or - like you stated above - in the next 10 seconds!

    Something could come out of nowhere to just dissolve the problem you spent so much energy worrying about.

    Thank you for the great reminder.

    Have a good one!

    So true. If only we realised that in just 10 seconds we could make a decision that could have an amazing effect.

    You can change your life in 30 days. This just reinforces that message. Take the first step - it is usually the hardest.

    Really cool post. Thanks for the share.
    Sometimes it happens to me. Not really the lack of courage but
    motivation. Suddenly I get this energy and start doing workout or
    blog posting or some work I have been keeping on hold.

    Such a cool thread! Imagine if your life was just a series of life-changing 10 second courageous moves! Every time you had the notion to do one of those incredibly simple things you described you just did it! That's how I try to live my life!

    Cheers

    Great quote! Not planning ten hours, we can do a lot in ten seconds. But we need also planning for our future and for good result. 10 seconds decisions can lead to a big fault.

    The quote above says a lot. 10 Seconds can change our lives...Provided we resolve on something with a Conscious Mind

    but, when you are going to take decisions, just analyse it atleast two times. You will get the correct answer only after the second thought...

    Good post!

    its true, we dont have lack of the 10 second to take action, we have lack of COURAGE which stop us to take action.

    Thanks for share!

    Courage is not the absence of fear but its the willingness to be afraid and act anyway.

      Thanks for this post you made my night!

      Taking action is always the key to anything we have set our eyes on....if we just keep looking at an empty word document, will it be filled with words that is supposed to be your next best seller?

      All I can say is, just go go go! Everything will just fall into place because everything happens for a reason...in the right time....

      That's absolutely true! Associating more pain with not trying and being filled with regret rather than allowing the prospect of temporary setbacks or discomfort prevent you from ever trying in the first place.

      Great post! I am sure it will get folks to thinking. I wrestle with some to these things everyday. Fear and procrastination are the two biggest stoppers in life. I often wonder what I, and others, could accomplish if we could just push through the doubt and fear.

      Thanks for the post.
