To Be Courageous ..."
I never used to understand the word
"courage." I used to think that it means
you're not afraid of anything/fearless like a
Superhero or something.
However over the years I now understand
Mark Twain when he said:
"Courage is resistance to fear.
Mastery of fear. Not absence of
The more afraid you are of something, the
more courage it takes to face/overcome
that fear. And, you gain strength, courage,
and confidence every time you really stop to
look fear in the face. As Susan Jeffers said:
"Feel the fear and do it anyway!"
Because your fear(s) can only stop you from
accomplishing what's important if you let them.
In other words you're 100% in control of
how you respond to fear.
Instead of seeing it as a "barrier" to success
(etc.) remember that it's actually an opportunity.
