“Courage is innate.” Tess Marshall
I used to think I didn’t really have courage … or at least enough courage to take chances. I would look at other people taking what I thought were “wild chances” and think to myself,
“I would soooooo never do that.”
“I am just too risk averse to take big chances”.
But, there was a large part of me that really wanted to have enough courage to take the chances I should. I didn’t want to look up one day and ever think, “if only” …
So, I knew I had to change things up a little.
I was going to need to push myself out of my comfort zone and start working on getting more “courage” (I guess I should have grabbed, Dorothy, Toto, the tin man and the scarecrow and started looking for the “yellow brick road”).
Looking back now, I realize that I was looking for something I already had.
Courage isn’t something you have or don’t have. As Tess explains, it’s innate. We’ve all got it in us and sometimes it just has to be uncovered.
I’ve always believed that we can learn so much from other people and the experiences and lessons they share from their lives. And, there is no one better to learn from than Tess Marshall.
