Top Ten Quotes On The Importance Of Courage
Eleanor Roosevelt once said that we gain strength, courage and confidence every time we look fear in the face. This is so true. When we take action in spite of our fears we find our courage and confidence soaring.
She also said, “You must do the thing you cannot do.”
Don’t let your fears stop you. Take action. You will discover that your worries were unfounded. Even if your actions do not work out the way you had hoped, you will still feel good that you didn’t let your fears stop you.
