We don't develop courage by being happy every day. We develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity. Our rough times often bring out the best in ourselves.
In my experience, people who have been through painful, difficult times are filled with compassion. In spite of adversity, those who are happiest seem to have a way of learning from difficult times, becoming stronger, wiser and happier as a result. Man is not made for defeat. It is true that man go through different phases in life. It's a part of living and existing. Sometimes we are devastated due to the loneliness and emptiness we feel inside but we need not lose hope.
Great men do not experience small challenges. They face great challenge but that is what makes them great. That is what give them great story. They live and leave distinctive footprints of life on minds
Courage is a choice that requires action. Give yourself credit. Use the same strength to make courageous choices today. Sometimes, making the wrong choice is better than making no choice. You have the courage to go forward; that is rare. I am not a courageous person by nature. But at a certain point in my life, I find the courage to leave my husband.
Finding the courage to stand where I fall allowed me to have perseverance in life. Or perhaps at times, it is a combination of spirit and desire, love and hope to know where to look without flinching. The only true measure of courage is perseverance under pressure.
Real courage is doing the right thing when nobody's looking. The key to life is accepting challenges. Be thankful to those painful memories of your life, because those what shaped you to become who you are now. Each mistake teaches you something new about yourself. There is no failure, remember, except in no longer trying. It is the courage to continue that counts. It can completely transform your life. Do the right thing because it is right. These are the magic keys to live your life with integrity even in rough times.
You develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity. You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind, next to honor. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. Hold on to your power and never give it away.
That's what courage is. Starting again. Damning yesterday and facing tomorrow with your head held high.
