All through the month of September, we have looked at inspirational quotes on courage. We have considered what courage is and how it is expressed. In our first post of the month, Courage to Conquer, we saw that courage is the ability to do something that frightens one.
The courage to lead is needed by all world leaders today. John C. Maxwell, the great author is credited with saying that everything rises and falls on leadership. This is very true. Great leadership produces progress and poor leadership produces hardship.
In our post titled Courage to Conquer, we defined courage as “mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty”. While this is a correct definition, there is another dimension of courage that deals with the control of strength. We call it the Courage to listen.
It is said that the greatest risk in life is to not take any risks. In fact, nothing outstanding is ever really achieved without taking some kind of risk. Many successful business men are known to attribute their success to the successful risks they took early on. The key is in taking calculated risks that are carefully planned out and have a higher chance of success. In this post, we take a look at how to gather up the courage to take calculated risks.
In our post today, we will be taking a look at the power of purpose and direction as they relate to courage. To do that, we will discuss a quote by President John F. Kennedy about effort and courage. Finally, we will conclude by reviewing the meaning of purpose and direction and how to use them to achieve one’s goals.
It is rightly said that we are all limited by our bravery and creativity. Even though we live in a world powered by knowledge, the reality is that today’s quest for knowledge is motivated by bravery and creativity.
A new month has just rolled by. September 2018. It promises to be a great month; a month of pursuit and conquest. This month at Innovate Today, we will be taking a look at courage, what it means and the many forms in which it manifests.
