To be courageous is part of who we are as human beings. We need it to succeed in life. Without courage, dreams will not come to fruition.
Read what great philosophers have said about courage, and you will understand it better. The two worth mentioning here are quotes from:
Epicurus, Greek philosopher, “You don’t develop courage by being happy in your relationships everyday. You develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity.”
W. Clement Stone, self help author, “Have the courage to say no. Have the courage to face the truth. Do the right thing because it is right. These are the magic keys to living your life with integrity.”
You are courageous when you:
- Survive difficult times.
- Challenge adversity.
- Face the truth.
- You do the right things because they are the right things to do, not because someone asked you to do them.
- You understand and learn from adversity and difficult times.
Be courageous. I am.
