“Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at its testing point.” — C.S. Lewis
7 Key Benefits of Courage
Courage enables you to maximize the potential of yourself and others. It has been said that life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage. The Law of Expansion says that Growth Always Increases Your Capacity. Leadership has at its center the requirement of courage. You cannot be a leader unless you find a way of developing and generating courage in yourself and then “encouraging” others.
Courage sustains you to live a life of few regrets. Our lives begin to end the day we remain silent about things that really matter.” — Martin Luther King
Courage allows you to climb as you step up the ladder of life. It has been said that courage is a muscle that is strengthened by use.
Courage encourages you during uncertain times. The Special Olympic Prayer says; “Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.
Courage propels you to reinvent yourself as often as needed. Courage can be viewed as the power to leave the familiar.
Courage sustains you long enough to win. “If I were asked to give what I consider the single most useful bit of advice for all humanity it would be this: Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life and when it comes, hold your head high, look it squarely in the eye and say, ‘I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me.’” — Ann Landers.
Courage advances your voice. People do not follow titles, they follow courage – William Brown. Respect on difficult ground. JFK once stated, “The stories of past courage…can teach, they can offer hope, they can provide inspiration. But they cannot supply courage itself. For this each man must look into his own soul.”
