Here is a quick breakdown of each branch of the Live Courageously mind map:
- COURAGEOUS LIVING: Courage means taking action in the face of fear and uncertainty that helps expand your comfort zone. The first branch of this map breaks down what it truly means to live a courageous life. Courageous living isn’t fearless living. It’s rather pushing through your fears and the discomfort you’re likely to face as you go after the things you want. And one of the keys to working through your fears comes down to caring about the important stuff and not caring about the things that typically hold you back. If you can find an equilibrium between the two, you will also find your courage.
- EMBRACE STRUGGLE: We all go through periods of struggle. The struggle is in many ways unavoidable. In fact, the more aggressively you go after what you want, the greater the struggle you’re likely to face. The second branch of this map explores how to courageously embrace your struggles and make the most of your hardships. The key takeaways here are to hold back your frustrations and complaints and to take responsibility for working through your struggles in courageous ways.
- LIVE AUTHENTICALLY: True courage means living authentically. In other words, it’s about living your truth, being real and not holding back how you feel or what you think. The third branch of this map walks you through how to find the courage you need to express and be yourself around others. Courage is about being vulnerable despite the risk of criticism, judgment, or rejection. It’s about being authentically you and going after what you want with all your heart.
- FIGHT COURAGEOUSLY: The final branch of this takes you through how to channel your courage through other people. We become more courageous when what we’re doing isn’t just for ourselves, but rather also serves the greater good of others. When you commit to courageously fighting for someone else, you will find the courage to do almost anything your heart desires. This branch of the map will help you to identify the people in your life who are worth courageously fighting for.

A mind map, of course, does this beautifully because it mirrors the synaptic connections made in your brain as you try to establish new habits of thought and behavior. It brings together key concepts and ideas that help your brain to fully integrate and process this information. The brain, subsequently, rewires itself as it attempts to establish new habits of mind. It’s an ideal tool for creating lasting change and transformation.
