Brave people act even when they feel scared.
Brave people know that feeling uncomfortable is a necessity to growth.
Brave people don’t quit or quit only when they see no further progress with continuing.
Being brave is not about the lack of fear, it is about acting despite of it.
Being brave is about caring for your family, going to work, taking care of your health, being responsible, appreciating life.
Being brave is not about manipulation, using other people for your selfish purposes or about self indulgement.
That is also the exact reason why fewer and fewer people are truly brave today. It is easier to follow the path of others, scared of making your own choices and possible mistakes along that way.
The thing is in order to escape the storm you must pass through it first.
Bill Gates put the similar construct in this way -The world won’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.
People are not trying to fulfill their drams, they are living with no ideas, they leave it to life to sway them in any direction. People nowdays are not living anymore for something bigger than themselves: they are often on a path to destruction through escaping reality in forms of addictions, excessive shopping or video games.
I know that its sometimes hard to set meaningful goals or to achieve them – but we must do so in order to progress, to evolve, to grow in our imperfect human nature.
Make plans, be courageous, take care of yourself and remember-
Fortune comes to the aid of those daring.
