3 Types Of Courage

Aristotle once said “You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor”. We all know that we need courage to step up and make the most out of our lives, but what is courage? The dictionary defines courage as ‘the ability to do something that frightens one’, but surely there is more than one dimension of courage? Is the courage it takes to ride a roller coaster the same as it is to ask someone to dance? If you can jump out of an aircraft, can you also swim with sharks or speak in public?

How To Live A Life On Purpose

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it.
