The power of courage

Fear is an obstacle you impose upon yourself. The power of any fear is the power you choose to give it.

And just as surely as you choose to fear, you can choose to move beyond that fear. In an instant you can transform the power of fear into the power of courage.

Fear will grab your attention, and warn you of very real dangers. Fear will heighten your awareness and compel you to be fully prepared, and those are very good and useful things.

But once the fear has done its job, your job is to move forward. Let the fear prepare you, and then quickly do what you have prepared to do.

Power, progress, achievement and fulfillment all come from facing your fears. By doing what you fear, you gain rock-solid confidence and vastly increase your effectiveness.

Every fear is an opportunity to grow in confidence and courage. Face the fear, and find the power of your courage.

— Ralph Marston
