COURAGE – The Power Within

What I think as being courageous is really about our having faith in own capabilities to overcome our fears. Without courage it would be extremely difficult to handle a whole host of problems that threaten us. Courage entails being able to go forward when you know a situation is uncertain but you feel it is the right thing and you do not give up. I think it takes courage to stand-alone with our beliefs when those beliefs are not popular or, widely shared. It takes courage to meet with any set of challenges that one knows they are not equal to but feel they are called to forge ahead regardless. It takes courage when we feel our world is careening out of control and you have lost the support of those that no longer respect your abilities. It takes courage to cope with crisis when we can see it’s on its way and it comes around the corner at rocket speed – heading straight for us. It takes courage to see an upsetting experience and not shy out-of-the-way, but instead, walk right into it, asking what we can do to help out. It takes courage to confront failure and admit that you made a mistake and continue to work out the details of a circumstance that is nothing less than chaotic when you know it would be easier to turn in another direction. It takes courage to learn lessons about yourself and try to work through the issues even when you must acknowledge shame. Courage is a state of consciousness.
