What is Courage?

Most times this isn’t fear of a physical danger but rather a fear of failure.

Oliver T. Spedding

“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.”

Anais Nin

Courage is described in the Oxford dictionary as “the ability to do something that is frightening” and this is the emotion that we need to overcome whenever we attempt to do something that we have not done before.
