Be so good they can’t ignore you

 The next time life presents you with a challenge, don’t simply assume everything will work out.

Don’t tell yourself you can’t do it.

Just evaluate the situation.

Figure out what you can accomplish right now.

Then draw your line.

When you cross that line, draw another one. And keep going.

Let’s keep our lightbulbs screwed in so God can shine through us….

Courage by Robert Biswar-Diener

Courage contains two primary internal elements: the willingness to act and the ability to control fear.

When you can successfully curb your fears and boost your ability to take action, you are better able to live a full and virtuous life.

You are more likely to face challenges with grace, connect with and inspire others, and be a force for good.
