This will be the first of many posts about courage to come.
A very interesting word that comes from the latin root cor, which means "heart"
So to live courageously is to live with heart.
I will try to shed some light on courage because it is one of those qualities I would like to develop more of and to share with you my findings.There are a lot of things you can't do if you're not courageous. You cannot be truthful, loving, trusting and even live a full life. It appears as courage first and everything else follows.
Courage is basically risking the the known for the unknown, the familiar for the unfamiliar, the comfort for the uncomfortable. Fearlessness is the ultimate experience of courage. The person who goes into the the unknown in spite of all the fears. I once heard a quote by a young entrepreneur who made this quote "everything we want in life is on the other side of fear". Now think about that for a second. It is one those statements you hear and you know instantly it is true.
What would our life be if we could act with a little more courage. Think about that for a second.
You would go after that job you really wanted, start that business you've been thinking about starting, forgive that person you've been meaning to forgive and whatever you have been meaning to do but are afraid. Ponder this until next time
