Debra’s Definition of Courage

Living in courage is a big, broad subject. I see courage as the will to act from the strength and power within the heart. Courage is a quality you gain through overcoming life’s biggest challenges and something you become through experience. Living a courageous life happens when we allow the true essence of who we are to rise up and shine for all the world to see – regardless of other people’s opinions. Courageous individuals who are true to themselves feel a powerful resolve that’s unshakable, a true conviction of purpose, a willingness to carry on in the face of any challenge.

Standing in the power of purpose is a pure point of courage, available to everyone who cares to utilize it, which brings forward the power alive within. If this power has been diminished greatly, when awakened it can shatter the fear of moving forward toward an intention or goal.

Greatness arises from mediocrity. Lives are altered as awareness shifts to possibility and progress. The union of courage and honor is a great gift within the heart of every human soul.

My deepest wish is for us all to live courageously from the heart. I can’t think of a better place to live from.

What is your definition of courage? I would love to hear from you.
