Ep. 13 - Courage #5 -Anonymous - Resistance & Mastery of Fear

Today's quote comes to us from an anonymous source, but it is oh so good, and I think gets right to the heart of what actual courage is. "Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear." So often we think people who are courageous are "fearless." While some of them may be fearless, it is not fearlessness that makes one courageous. Most people who are courageous also have fears about what they are needing to show courage towards. It's just that they resist and then master that fear in order to do what needs to be done. So many great concepts in here for coaches, teachers, parents, and leaders of all types to work on instilling in their athletes, students, families, teams, and organizations.
