Face your Fear: The Science Behind 2 Seconds of Courage

You’re standing on a platform high among the trees.

Mobbly Bay is below you. You notice a gentle breeze. The view is impeccable.

You tug on your harness, safe and sound, but there’s a lot of air between you and the Earth.

Hello, fear.

You close your eyes, take a deep breath and let it settle.

You jump.

It takes 2seconds of courage to leap from atop a zip line platform. That moment of bravery can provide a foundation for personal growth and success. At Empower Adventures in Tampa Bay, we develop personal growth through zip line tours, ropes courses, and team-building exercises.

Zip Lines Help Develop Courage as a Skill

At Empower Adventures, we believe leadership as a work ethic and courage as a skill can be used for everyday discourse

After you face, and conquer, the fear of that initial leap, you can overcome any mental hurdle. Those 2 seconds of courage serve as an inspiration and a reminder that anything is possible with determination.

Acts of Courage Are Rarely Dramatic

Shows of courage aren’t typically as dramatic as completing a zip line course. We frequently think of bravery as it’s found in Hollywood action movies. According to Harvard Business, that’s (very) rarely the case. “In business, courage seldom resembles the heroic impulsiveness that sometimes surfaces in life-or-death situations.”

More often, brave choices come from careful forethought and intentional follow-through. Courage is often found in small moments when a choice is carefully weighed against potential consequences.

Our course teaches following through and how to do it carefully, with intention, and ultimately with confidence and courage. Essentially, we teach about the final moment where the next thing to do is leap.
