Daily Inspiration

Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.

Winston Churchill

What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?

Inspiration: A True Mark of Courage

The Philosopher’s Corner

Courage has always been a core value that I have been drawn too. If there is an absence of its essence, the psyche becomes paralyzed by fear. But fear itself is the foundation behind courage, and it is up to each individual to stand up to its presence in order to realize their self potential.

Today’s quotes come from a former Prime Minister, who needed to stand up to great pressures while leading his country through the tragedies of a World War. He reminds us to be mindful that speech is much more effective when one breaks it by times of silence and listening to the task at hand. The second quote from a renowned artist that broke many of the customary rules reminds us that the foundation of anything great or beautiful starts with one simple step to attempt something new.

With many blessings fellow travelers on this beautiful Monday.

Believe, Achieve, and Advance Confidently in the Direction of Your Dreams.
