Without the ability to be harmed, you can’t be courageous.

“You can’t have courage without vulnerability.”

~ Carma Spence

vul·ner·a·ble (adjective): susceptible to physical or emotional attack or harm
cour·age (noun): the ability to do something that frightens one

So many women entrepreneurs avoid being seen as vulnerable while still attempting to be seen as bold and brave, without realizing that they are sabotaging their own efforts by trying to go two directions at the same time.

Imagine that you knew you couldn’t lose, that you were impervious to harm. Would running into a building on fire to rescue a child be a courageous act? Of course not! You can’t be hurt. Saving that child would be no more dangerous for you than skinny dipping in your backyard swimming pool.

It is the very fact that firemen fear being burned alive but run into fiery buildings anyway to save children and puppies that make them heroic and courageous.

To be a courageous entrepreneur you have to feel the fear of failure but build your business anyway. You have to allow yourself to be vulnerable, open to harm, but get up on that stage, hold that webinar, call that prospect anyway. That is how you not only become a courageous entrepreneur but you win clients by being an example of what the human spirit is capable of.

Hiding behind your fear does nothing for anyone.
