Courage is a funny thing. You realize you have it after the fact – once you demonstrate resolve during a difficult time.
Yet difficult times can definitely be intimidating. At least they are for me. At those times, I find a story to read or a podcast to listen to that highlights an ordinary person (like me) who solved a seemingly impossible problem. That person’s courageous action gives me hope, heart, and enough courage to take another step. When I take step after step after step, I mobilize my strengths and ultimately access my own courage.
Mission accomplished. On to the next goal.
