courage (kûr’ĭj, kŭr’-) n.
The state or quality of mind or spirit that enables one to face danger, fear, or vicissitudes with self-possession, confidence, and resolution; bravery.
A month ago, many friends responded positively to my thought that integrity was actually a verb. Since then, as I have visited with terrific people all over the country, I realized that courage is also.
The difficult times many face have caused them to pause and consider position. Lots of folks have shared with me their internal negative reflection on careers, or relationships, and even their future (some have been worried that they aren’t pleased at all with what they see).
In these cases, courage is a verb. Courage takes action. Action comes from focusing on possibilities. As Ernie taught in “Ernie’s Journey”, possibilities come from having your antennas up and realizing that opportunity is all around us.
Possibilities are there, they do exist.
Take a moment this week to experience some serenity time. Quiet your negative internal dialogue long enough to consider all of your possibilities. Write them down and decide how to take your first new step. If life isn’t everything you need it to be, begin today to make a positive change.
Exercise some courage, because courage really is a verb!……
By the way, John David Mann (along with George Pratt, and Peter Lambrou) has a new book out on April 3 entitled “Code to Joy: The Four-Step Solution to Unlocking Your Natural State of Happiness”. My recommendation is to log in to your Amazon account on April 3 and buy a copy. I’ve already pre-ordered mine. I’m willing to wager you won’t be disappointed!
