Success is never final, failure is never fatal. It’s courage that counts. – John Wooden
Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point. – C. S. Lewis
This quote from John Wooden reminded me of one of my favorite CS Lewis quotes.
Courage counts because it’s what gets you through when things get hard.
And only by pushing through when things get hard do we grow.
Courage counts when your honesty is tested.
Courage counts when you can be patient or give in.
Courage counts when you have to pick an apple over that donut.
Courage counts when you tell someone no in order to honor your previous yes.
In these small moments, a courageous person is built.
Make it a great day.
