Being Courageous

Posted on Updated on

“All of us experience fear, but when we confront and acknowledge it, we are able to turn it into courage.  Being courageous does not mean never being scared; it means acting as you know you must even though you are undeniably afraid.”  Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Believe

“It is not whether or not you are afraid.  We are all afraid.  The question is, How do you deal with the fear?  The courageous person is simply one who goes forward in spite of the fear.” Brian Tracy, Goals!

“If you want to develop courage, do the thing you fear to do and keep on doing it until you get a record of successful experiences behind you. That is the quickest and surest way ever yet discovered to conquer fear”.  Dale Carnegie

“Courage is being stupid enough not to realize the danger
Involved to yourself
Smart enough to know you don’t have a choice,
But to take immediate action,
It’s a reflex action in the face of danger.
It’s something you have to do
And there is not enough time to wait
For another to make that decision”

Jackie Logan, Pen-sanity
