Courage is doing what you're afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you're scared.

Your good fortune

Consider how supremely fortunate you are. You’re alive, you’re able to think, to act, to make decisions, to make a difference. There are those whom you care about. There are those who care about you. You’re experienced, knowledgeable, skilled, curious and resourceful.

With all that going for you, there’s no need to be stopped by fear. There’s no need to be the least bit insecure. There’s no need to be angry, arrogant or deceitful. There’s every reason to be confident. There’s every reason to move forward.

Sure your life has its shortcomings. Yet those are far outweighed by your blessings and your possibilities. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by stepping confidently forward. You are blessed, you are worthy and you deserve to have the best that life can offer. Use every moment to make that happen.

— Ralph Marston
