I stand alone, exempt from fear,
Above the ranks that disappear,
I stand alone, and come what may
I’ll make it through another day!
(R Weisser 2012)
We are all aware that each day presents new opportunities and unique challenges that can be either confronted or ignored.
The fear of failure is often employed to rationalize inaction. But we all have our own trepidations, and yet some choose to ignore the risks and consequences and choose to press forward.
Courage is NOT the absence of fear. Rather, it is the quality of character that allows us to move on despite our most fearsome reservations.
We can choose to face our fears.
Or otherwise, we will never blossom.
