Courage

You will never achieve anything great in life unless you dare to believe that something inside you is bigger than the circumstances you face.
When we think about or dreams, it is like a call to arms. A call to take an adventurous journey. The spiritual journey takes us inward and downward to face the hardest realities of our lives. We must understand and acknowledge that the enemy is within - fear of failure. Accepting the call requires courage. Courage is not the absence of fear. It is acting in spite of fear.
Action is the proof of your courage. Courage is going against the odds, against popular opinion. It’s doing what most people aren’t willing to do. Having the heart to choose your own course of action. And taking responsibility when you fail or stumble. With Courage you can do almost anything. Without it even a brilliant person accomplishes little.
“This country was founded and built by people with great dreams and the courage to take great risks.” - Ronald Reagan
