Courage is all about facing our fears and challenges with determination. One of the biggest challenges we all face is going outside our comfort zone, trying something new or pushing past what we believe we are able to do. It is very easy for us, especially adults, to get comfortable with what we are doing, and when faced with the opportunity to try something new – we may be intrigued – but not enough to give it full effort.
I love this quote – “The important thing is this: To be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become.” When we challenge ourselves we will find ourselves becoming better, more informed and more accomplished than we can even imagine. Setting this example for our children and students is part of our responsibility to them. We certainly do not want to see them going through life practicing mediocrity.
