What does it take to be successful? Why does it seem to happen for others, but not you? No matter what happens in life, some people move forward, while others tend to stay stagnant. Why?
The answer is courage. Being courageous means doing what you’re fearful of. Courage isn’t the absence of fear, but the conquest of it. One definition of courage is “firmness of mind and will in the face of danger or extreme difficulty.” It means doing it while afraid, until you’re no longer afraid. This is why the successful and the happiest of people seem to overcome their fear and do the right thing. They take a calculated risk and see the benefits. If you knew you would never fail, what would you do?
Courage is what makes faith work. Without courage, faith alone can be nothing more than a set of benefits. Learn to overcome your fear. Tremble your way to confidence. Without courage, nothing would be built, no one would take a risk, and most people wouldn’t get married.
Courage makes the world go ‘round. It takes courage to discover a new world and to believe God enough to actually do His word.
Just a thought,
