Courage is doing what you’re afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you’re scared. If you are not scared of anything, and you think you’re fearless, you’re half right and half wrong. Having fear of something, but doing it is REAL courage, unless you do something you’re NOT afraid of, and do it, and say you have courage, that’s a lie. That’s is cowardly. The reason of that is because you are doing something you are comfortable with, and you have no problem with it. Like for example, say you weren’t afraid of roller coasters and you ride the baddest of them all, and say your fearless, that’s a lie. But if you are afraid of heights, and you jump from a cliff or a plane, that’s courageousness. You need fear of something to have courage to actually do the thing you are afraid of. Me, I have no courage, I’m a careful man, and never take chances that could risk and injury or other stuff, unless it’s sports. The people out there, that have no where to live but the streets where gangs are, and you sleep there, that’s just crazy. What I’m saying is that, you need to do stuff that your afraid of doing (I know, I sound like a hypocrite) and stick with your guts. Be a trailblazer, one who goes into the unknown to find a better future.
