Pack courage in your toolbox

Posted on Updated on


Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong.

There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs.  – Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you are facing difficulties that seem insurmountable, I want to en-courage you to draw on that which lies deep within you.

Oh, sure, you may think you lack what it takes to climb over that speed bump – or mountain – that’s directly in front of you, but I have faith that you will not only do so, but you will rise victorious to the top.

You are stronger than you think.

Believe it.
