Explore the value of Courage
To dream anything that you want to dream. That's the beauty of the human mind. To do anything that you want to do. That is the strength of the human will. To trust yourself to test your limits. That is the courage to succeed.
Most of our obstacles would melt away if, instead of cowering before them, we should make up our minds to walk boldly through them.
Orison Swett Marden
Do not be conquered by fear of loss or defeat, for without them, success and victory would be meaningless.
We must have the courage to bet on our ideas, to take the calculated risk, and to act. Everyday living requires courage if life is to be effective and bring happiness.
The courage to imagine the otherwise is our greatest resource, adding color and suspense to all our life.
Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.
Sir Winston Churchill
Robert Louis Stevenson
