Championing Courage

Do you like this story?

Courage is not the absence of fear and is not formed in the land of ease.

Courage is formed on the battlefield of life. It is the outworking of faith in the lives of those who dare to step out of the lounge called comfortable and onto the field called uncomfortable.

A courageous champion is one who steps forth while the butterflies are still flying into formation. Courage is demonstrated by those who could possibly fail in the pursuit of victory. And yet they are wise enough in their preparation, diligent in their research, and even have a plan B just in case their first plan falters. They wisely position themselves to win. Courageous champions are not courageous fools.

And what of mistakes? These are the courageous champion’s friend from whom they learn much. But yet they don’t allow the impossible or the improbable to hinder their forward progress.

They are the ones who start early and those who finish late. They are the ones who prepare, so that when opportunity introduces itself to them, and it does, they are positioned to succeed and to be hailed as courageous champions.

But the courageous know secretly, that while all others have slept they have been awakened to the exciting possibilities that life has to offer those who demonstrate courage in their daily lives.
