As Benjamin Mee beautifully said “You know, sometimes all you need is 20 seconds of courage. Just literally twenty seconds of just embarrassing bravery. And I promise you, something great will come of it.”
Courage is all that it takes to initiate something new. Humans are capable of so much yet they limit their abilities. Limitations and fear are subjected to one’s own mind.
Overcoming fear and anxiety can be proved to be a herculean task for some. You cannot go on with your life without making a few changes. You are going to encounter new people as soon as you set foot outside the place you reside. Change is inevitable. 20 seconds of courage is enough to make up that ‘first impression’. In any profession, you need to have enough courage and confidence to help people understand your point.

Believe it or not, but a few seconds are enough to introduce something good in your life. It also welcomes positivity and makes you feel good about yourself. Blooming friendships and relationships are enough to keep someone happy. The bigger the circle you have, more happening your life will become. Well, we can debate this one, but that’s okay.
People know that life is too short to be stressed or regret about anything. So why don’t you muster the courage, talk to new people and live a little?
This can be a key to social success. In the very story written by the famous writer Benjamin Mee, the owner of the zoo was able to start a family and a capable zoo because he gathered courage enough to talk to the woman he found to be perfect. And it doesn’t just have to apply to people you want to date, it’ll work even when you have to ask someone for notes before an exam, or when you have to confront a colleague at work. Even when you are travelling the world and want to get to know some local people, just remember, 20 seconds of courage is all it takes.
You have to give yourself a chance to explore and do something new. Who knows what you can get out of it? Beautiful things usually come out unexpectedly. Embrace them!
