Motivational Quote - Courage is like a muscle; it is strengthened by use.

SparkPeople's Comments

Sometimes it is hard to be courageous. Try to think of the last time when you had trouble remaining courageous. Maybe you’ve recently lost your job and you find yourself scared about where the money is going to come from or a close friend/ family member has recently passed away and you find yourself scared about the future without them? When situations get hard and you find yourself full of fear, remember that courage is strengthened by use. You must constantly be developing this ability to remain calm and courageous. If you continue to work on this skill, you will find that difficult situations will be easier to handle. They might not be any less painful, but you will be more able to overcome the hurdles with courage.

What a great quote. Taking a courageous step is often the hardest thing to do but can make all the difference. The world would be a better place if all people showed the courage to do the right thing.

When faced with my DH losing his memory and not being able to make decisions and do the things he had always done for us and it falling all on my shoulders I was scared and now after16 years he is still doing fine physically and I am managing all our affairs some days it is truly one day at a time

Courage is like a muscle; it is strengthened by use. – Ruth Gordon

I agree with this quote. The more you tell yourself you can do something and have the courage to face your fear, then you ae able to do it and get even stronger in your passion to improve yourself.
