“Discouragement is not the absence of adequacy but the absence of courage.”
-- Neal A. Maxwell
I love that. I have never noticed that discouragement is actually a lack or absence of courage, and not in adequacy, or failure, or not trying hard enough or any of those things. It is simply not having enough courage.
What is courage to me?
Having fear and acting anyway.
True Courage is those who act in the face of fear.
True courage is when someone does something that you think, how could they do that. And the question of how they could do that is because of all the fear that you see would be there if you were to think about doing what they did.
