If I were Brave?

expectations

In 2001, I attended the inaugural Spring Skills workshop held in Sydney by the National Speakers Association of Australia.  It was a great experience.

During the workshop, we were played a song by Jana Stanfield entitled, “If I were Brave?”

Subsequently, Jana very kindly gave permission for us to use her songs in our presentations.

Overall these years since, I have never forgotten the song nor its truly thought-provoking question, “What would I do today … if I were brave?”

The song taps into our hopes…and the fears that hold us back.

All too often we live small lives, not because someone else is holding us back, but because we are.  Bravery doesn’t have to be a huge step, it can be slowly creeping in the direction of our desires.

 

“If I were Brave”

By Jana Stanfield

 

What would I do if I knew that I could not fail?

If I believed … would the wind always fill up my sail?

How far would I go?

What could I achieve … trusting the hero in me?

 

CHORUS

If I were brave I’d walked the razor’s edge

Where fools and dreamers dare to tread

And never lose faith, even when losing my way

What step would I take, today, if I were brave?

 

What would I do today, if I were brave?

(Repeat four times)

 

What if we are all meant to do what we secretly dream

What would you ask if you knew you could have anything?

Like the mighty oak sleeps in the heart of the seed

Are there miracles in you and me?

 

CHORUS

If I were brave I’d walked the razor’s edge

Where fools and dreamers dare to tread

And never lose faith, even when losing my way

What step would I take, today, if I were brave?

 

What would I do today, if I were brave?

(Repeat four times)

 

 

If I refuse to listen to the voice of fear

Would the voice of courage, whisper in my ear?

 

CHORUS

If I were brave I’d walked the razor’s edge

Where fools and dreamers dare to tread

And never lose faith, even when losing my way

What step would I take, today, if I were brave?

 

What would I do today, if I were brave?

(Repeat four times)
