“Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can’t be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.” –Maya Angelou
It takes courage to go against the grain and not fit in with normalcy. The one’s who go after their dreams are often observed by society as the crazy ones. I find it crazy how so many people settle for less. I’d much rather go to my grave knowing I tried everything there is in this life than still have the music left in me. I’m not telling you to go out and quit your job but really take into consideration that you are given one shot at life might as well leave a dent.
Courage must be exercised daily like going to the gym to exercise your muscles. Step into your fears and do not let them hold you back from going after your dreams. While others are telling you to do something else or to not go after that dream you have in mind you must not listen to all the noise. Courageous individuals lead through example. They take action and inspire others while doing so.
The individuals who spark the world are the ones who go against the grain of what everyone enforces upon them. They do not let fear stop them, nor facing criticism from others. Instead of listening to what everyone else is advising them to do they listen to their heart and that is something you cannot measure. It’s how much heart that you truly have inside of you that matters.
Have the courage to take a stand and believe what is truly in your heart.
