What is courage?

The path that leads to a life lived on our own terms often features pebbles, rocks, and sometimes a “this road is closed” sign. It takes courage to pass those pebbles, move that rock or to find a way around it.

Courage can be compared to muscles. The more we use them the stronger they get. Yet, if we neglect them, they become weak and when needed for quick action they often have a hard time firing up.

The definition of courage is the bravery and/or strength to do something that could be dangerous.

When was the last time you felt butterflies in your belly or your stomach moving up into your throat? When was that last time you felt scared, so nervous, or so unsure about a decision you were making?

Courage is the willingness to make those decisions every day and live face to face with their outcomes. It is the ability to move forward regardless of any distress you may feel. Every one of us faces fears, doubts, depressions, and anxiety. But not everybody has the courage to move beyond them. Those that do are considered courageous.

Passion, humility, integrity, truth, confidence, strength, and compassion are all outcomes of being courageous. To display these on a day-to-day basis, that is courage.

It takes a tremendous amount of courage to become the person you truly want to be. It is easier to get wrapped up in ways that things can go wrong. It takes courage to shift your mindset; to find your way and to be true to yourself and discover your virtues.

Courage is the central theme within Bolster's work, so we are looking forward to share our way of working with you in the upcoming days. Are you ready to hit the road and see what will happen?
