It’s not an exaggeration to say that a lack of courage is often what stops people from living a life they are capable of, rather than one that has been enforced on them by circumstance.
More than anything, courage is an act of defiance and persistence under pressure, and one of the most effective ways to harness it is to remind yourself that, overall, things are okay.
Getting out of bed on a particularly bad day can be an act of courage. Asking someone for help can be an act of courage. Not quitting in the face of setback can be an act of courage.
