To be looking elsewhere for miracles is to me a sure sign of ignorance that everything is miraculous.

Know courage

Courage does not exist in a vacuum. Where there is true courage, there is true purpose driving it.

Courage is not something you obtain for its own sake. Those times you act with courage are the times you have a powerful enough reason to do so.

Courage arises when you connect your actions to your purpose. Courage is an affirmation of how much you care.

Do you find yourself hobbled by fear? To function well in the face of danger and risk, connect more robustly to what matters and why.

Don’t bother asking yourself how to have more courage. Seek instead to live with genuine purpose, and you’ll discover the courage that’s always been there.

Enable your purpose to be bigger than your fear. Know what you care about and you will know courage.
