20 seconds of insane courage

“You know, sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it.” 

Benjamin Mee, We Bought A Zoo

I watched this show last  night for the first time.  What an inspiring show.  Could you imagine if you took 20 seconds per day - literally long enough to take a few breaths - to do something really courageous?  Something of ridiculous bravery?  I am not talking just once, but each day take 20 seconds, how would your life be different?

Would it make a difference in your marriage?  Your job? Your relationship with your child? Your self esteem?  Just think if you had the courage to ask your boss for that promotion that you have always been hoping for?  What if you did something crazy that reminded you why you fell in love in the first place? What if you actually sat down and listened to your child's words, instead of talking at them?  

Oh the possibilities are endless!  I love when I watch a show, or read a book that inspires me to be a better person!

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...”
Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You'll Go!
