Timid people achieve less than bold.

Boldness builds the future. Fear stalls progress and congeals the past. Fear is survival mode. Boldness is opportunity mode.

4 Ways to Build Boldness:

1. Prepare people for future challenges with training.Provide mentors.Celebrate mistakes caused by boldness.Most importantly fill people with hope.

2. Don’t press timid people to be bold – Give them hope and they will be bold.

3. Boldness follows hope. Hope is facing the future believing you’ll win. Napoleon Bonaparte said, “A leader is a dealer in hope.” Timid people don’t believe they can win.

4. People who believe they can win keep working to win.

10 Ways to Build Hope:

1. Believe in them more than they believe in themselves.

2. Do things that matter. Never complete bland tasks; always achieve meaningful vision.

3. Remember past successes. “Hope is the feeling we have that the feeling we have is not permanent,” Mignon McLaughlin.

4. Pat people on the back.

5. Celebrate small wins, every day. Small wins create big wins.
