Courage by Design | Dee Robinson




Courage is a choice — your choice. If you wish, you can design and follow your own personal roadmap for a courageous life. In her powerful new book, visionary business leader Dee M. Robinson shows you how to transform your life by building up the courage to hear your own authentic internal voice. That voice is what points you toward your best self — and when you have the courage to hear it, that voice can teach you to overcome fear, make brave, bold choices, and find joy in fulfilling your true purpose in life.   Strengthening your courage muscle, Robinson maintains, is a matter of learning, practicing, and living the Courage Commandments she has shared with students and audiences around the country:

  1. Assume Full Control of Your Thoughts
  2. Be the CEO of You
  3. Break the Addiction to Fear
  4. Harness the Power of Faith
  5. Find Your Calling
  6. Play to Your Strong Suit
  7. Connect with Allies Who Are Focused on Solutions
  8. Choose Who You Do (and Don”t) Share Your Dreams With
  9. Find Success In Failure
  10. Your Secret Weapon: Give, Give and Give Again with Integrity

…and a special eleventh commandment: +1: Win the Race: Make Good Trouble by Putting Your Heart and Soul into Diversity, Equity and Inclusion   The book also features Ms. Robinson”s personal interviews with some of the most successful–and brave–leaders on the scene today. Each shares personal insights on using the Courage Commandments to design, and live, a life of bold, tenacious contribution.
