Sometimes, we wish that we had more courage to do the things that we know we should.

We pray for it.

We read about it.

We hang around people who have it.

We really, really, really, really want it.

But it doesn’t work that way.

You don’t get courage, you build it.

You start by doing something small that you’re afraid of.

You grit your teeth and find a way to get it done.

This gives you a bit more courage to take on something bigger.

So you do it.

This give you even more courage to take on something bigger again.

Rinse and repeat.

Over time, you will build up the courage necessary to take on the tasks that you’ve been dreading for your entire life.

You don’t become fearless, but you do become more courageous.

So, if you need courage for anything, stop wishing for it and start building it.
