“Courage doesn’t always roar.  Sometimes it’s the quiet voice at the end of the day that says I will try again tomorrow” ~ Mary Anne Radmacher

Courage 1This is one of my themes. I am the quiet type who will keep trying, and trying, and pushing ahead. It is a type of courage to keep trying again, to do the right thing. Courage to make the right thing happen. I have found that direct opposition many times is futile, but by being a quiet courageous example and showing people how things are meant to be done, many times I have a greater influence than if I roared about how great I am. That is not to say that I don’t occasionally push back directly, especially when it is called for.

Courage 2I encourage you to keep trying, and working towards your dreams and goals.  Most people who are successful were not successful on the first try, but rather after many tries, and they kept trying again. One example of this type of courage is the late Steve Jobs. He had many ups and downs, but kept trying and trying again.

If at first you don’t succeed, keep trying. But recognize when a battle is futile – Pick your battles
