We cannot simply sit and stare at our wounds forever. We must stand up and move on to the next action.

To be honest, I can’t imagine how anyone could say ‘I’m weak’ and then stay that way. If you know that about yourself, why not fight it, why not develop your character?

Courage isn’t just about being brave,it’s about daring to do what feels right. And what feels right is often a scary journey that goes against the tide. Courage is like surfing a wave, daring the high peaks and daring the wipeouts that follow and enjoying both… Courage is about daring life to break me often, then daring not to fix what’s broken but instead to reassemble the pieces and reinvent them in a whole new way. So in a way, courage is daring to trust myself and be creative in times of despair… fall apart, come together again… fall apart, come together again… never fear, always do what feels right for you, always smile and live Life, that’s courage

“You must have complete determination. The worst opponent you can come across is one whose aim has become an obsession. For instance, if a man has decided that he is going to bite off your nose no matter what happens to him in the process, the chances are he will succeed in doing it. He may be severely beaten up, too, but that will not stop him from carrying out his objective. That is the real fighter.” -

Setting a goal is not the main thing. It is deciding how you will go about achieving it & staying with that plan. -Tom Landry
