Life requires courage. Courage has got to do with the ability to confront things that scare the crap out of you -- but act as though you are not afraid. It is what picks you up and dusts you off, and sets you on your path to becoming the best version of yourself. If there was no perceived risk then we would never have any need of courage!!
Without courage we can have no real self-esteem, pride or power. Without courage we would never push ourselves beyond where we feel comfortable; therefore -- we would never grow! We would never learn what we are truly capable of and therefore we miss out on developing to our full potential.
Courage is empowering. It's a choice to stand and fight -- when it would be much easier to give up.
Courage enables you to try new things or do things a different way -- courage enables us to get uncomfortable and grow!!
Without courage we are merely a victim of our own circumstances. If we want things to be different we actually need to do things differently NOW!! We have the power to gather our courage and get uncomfortable -- we have the power to do things differently!!
Courage determines what we do, or do NOT do, with our lives.
