When problems besot us we are very easily driven to a sense of defeat and fatalistic contemplation. This only adds to the feeling of misery which we must avoid.
It is very imperative to realize that we as individuals are more important that any of the problems we might face or any hurdles we might have to overcome. It is in these testing times that we make our identity as individuals. We are bigger than what we face or things that can happen to us.
This belief is the essential driving force that helps us attain our goals and accomplish great things. When you believe what’s inside you is superior to your circumstances you automatically are in control of your emotions and reactions to those circumstances and emerge better every time.
Some people go about their business not fearing anything, that could be good but the key is in knowing how to fear what should be feared and how not to fear what needn’t be feared.
Sound reasoning always leads to true courage. A courageous mind is an impregnable fortress.
“Courage is rarely reckless or foolish . . . courage usually involves a highly realistic estimate of the odds that must be faced.”
