“Most of us have far more courage than we ever dreamed we possessed.” - Dale Carnegie
“Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I'll try again tomorrow.” - M A Radmacher
This week I have a couple of quotes for you to think about. I came across the first one and it reminded me of my roommate playing basketball. The team made it far this year, and it took a lot of courage. They had to be in a mindset that would in no way inhibit their teamwork. In the same way, we all need to have that mindset. If we allow ourselves to do everything we can, it will surprise you. You may try new things or try the same things in a different manner; either way, be ambitious. You can accomplish what you set out to do.
That being said…the second quote definitely needs to be states because sometimes it is scary to try new or different things. Sometimes it is just not the right time to be fully courageous. All I can say is that’s okay too. Sometimes you just need to wait until “tomorrow”, but the important thing is to be thinking about everything you can do. Too many people don’t do things or even think of things (ride rollercoasters, taking hard classes, moving away from home, etc.) because they don’t think they can, but they are wrong. If you really want to do it, and you all have the courage inside of you to do it, you will find a way even if it is “tomorrow”. You need to make a plan and you need to act on that plan. Work up some courage this week, because I know it is inside of each and every one of you.
