We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face… we must do that which we think we cannot.
Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.
John F. Kennedy
How many a man has thrown up his hands at a time when a little more effort, a little more patience would have achieved success.
Here are some quotes I like on courage.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
How few there are who have courage enough to own their faults, or resolution enough to mend them.
Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.
Courage means to keep working a relationship, to continue seeking solutions to difficult problems, and to stay focused during stressful periods.
What quotes or phrases inspire you to be more courageous?
Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
Wisdom is the accumulation of knowledge. Knowledge is understanding that is gained from experience. As you go about your daily activities do you seek knowledge? If so, do you then look at how it can add to the knowledge you already have, will it change your perception or opinion of a situation? This is how you take knowledge and gain wisdom. When you have started to gain wisdom you can then apply your knowledge to new situations and solve challenges that previously seemed insurmountable. The first step is to learn from your daily experiences. Keep learning each and every day.
All of us have a great capacity for growth and improvement. We get the choice of doing something with that capacity or not. Life is a journey and each day represents a new opportunity to move forward towards are dreams. Success is a result of action and great success is a result of determined and focused action. Keep moving forward no matter what happens. An obstacle only stops progress if you let it, find a way around it to reach your goals.
