COURAGE





In whatever arena of life, if he follows his conscience, one may meet
the challenge of courage, whatever may be the sacrifices he faces
the loss of his friends, his fortune, his contentment, even the esteem of
his fellow men each man must decide for himself the course he will
follow.

The stories of past courage can define that ingredient they can
teach, they can offer hope, they can provide inspiration. But they
cannot supply courage itself. For this each man must look into his own
soul.

--John F. Kennedy, Profiles in Courage

COURAGE





Read the stories of courageous people.
Project yourself into their situation What would I have done?

Think about the times you have been courageous (and cowardly).
Determine that courage is a quality you want to exhibit.

Be ready for the life-changing moment when
your COURAGE is tested.


Courage is like a muscle. The more
we exercise it, the stronger it gets.
John McCain, In Search of Courage
