“Courage is not the absence of fear.
It is acting in spite of it.”
– Mark Twain.
Courage it is the first step in everything that we need in order to move forward. Courage is necessary in everything in life and the more we have it, the greater things we can do in life.
Perhaps, the simplest definition of courage is to be able to look truth into the face without squirming, defending or deflecting. Or, very simply, courage lays the foundation in everything and without courage we are without life.
But, courage is neither something that comes flying to our hearts in our moments of need or in emergencies nor something that can be handed over to us through lessons …………………
“Sometimes even to live is an act of courage.”
“Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.”
“Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.”
“Courage doesn’t always roar.
courage is the little voice
at the end of the day says,
“I will try again tomorrow.”
“Optimism is the foundation of courage.”
“First say to yourself what you would to be; and then do what you have to do.”
“The only courage that matters is the kind that gets you from one moment to the next.”
“When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.”
“Don’t find fault, find a remedy.”
Eleanor Roosevelt once said; “No one can make you feel inferior without your permission.” When things are not right, we should be the first to come forward to fix them. Blaming is only for crybabies.
Courage is a choice. It is the true power that lights us up and comes from within. But, as we choose our action, we are at the same time, choosing our consequences too. There will be no running away and we have to take responsibility.
As I conclude this post, “Courage Is A Choice” I wish to leave you with an inspiring food for thought from Dale Carnegie; “Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.”
Courage Is A Choice ……………………….. Have A Dream.
