The Courage to Live Consciously by Steve Pavlina
Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable. - Helen Keller In our day-to-day lives, the virtue of courage doesn't receive much attention. But a side effect of overemphasizing the importance of personal security in your life is that it can cause you to live reactively. No doubt there exist real dangers in life you must avoid. How many of these fears are holding you back? Have you previously convinced yourself that you aren't really afraid of anything... that there are always good and logical reasons why you don't do certain things? What Is Courage? Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear. - Ambrose Redmoon Everyone has talent.
