Courage is the ability to do things that feel difficult, scary, or uncertain. It's not reserved for just a chosen few. It's a birthright. It's inside all of us. And it's waiting for you to discover it.

One moment of courage can change your day. One day can change your life. And one life can change the world. That's the true power of courage.

When it comes to goals, dreams, and changing your life, your inner wisdom is a genius. Your goal-related impulses, urges and instincts are there to guide you. You need to learn to bet on them. That bet starts with hearing the instinct to change and honoring that instinct with action.

The more you believe that you are in control of your life, your actions, and your future, the happier and more successful you'll be.

There's one thing that is guaranteed to increase your feelings of control over your life: a bias toward action.

Success is a numbers game. And you're not going to win it if you keep telling yourself to wait. The more often that you choose courage, the more likely you'll succeed.

We make almost every single decision not with logic, not with our hearts, not based on our goals or dreams, but with our feelings.

If you don't learn how to untangle your feelings from your actions, you'll never unlock your true potential. And remember: you can't control how you feel, but you can always choose how you act.

Worrying is a default setting that your mind goes to when you aren't paying attention. The key is catching yourself when you drift into worry, and then regaining mental control by using the Rule.

Even though your fears and your habits can hijack you in five seconds, you can take back control just as quickly and continue to do so forever.
