I hear the word “courage” thrown around a lot lately to describe people who have done everything from donate a kidney to start a business. But what is courage and is it a choice? As I thought about this two things came to mind. Courage is only real if you are scared in the first place and it comes from the inside out. No one can look at your experience and determine if you are brave. For one person it takes courage to make a presentation in front of 5,000 people and for another person it requires courage to say hello to one person.
So is real courage a choice? I would say, “yes” – something that each of us can demonstrate in our own way and in our own time.
Have a great Thursday,
