My Observations...

Courage: The Most Important Virtue

I've often heard courage and confidence used interchangeable, but there is a YUGE difference. Courage is action; confidence is emotion. In other words, courage is what you do to make yourself more confident.

 

Leadership guru John Maxwell put it this way: "I can't talk you into confidence, but I can walk you into it."

 

Sir Winston Churchill, the cigar smoking and whiskey drinking British statesman who led Europe to victory in World War II once said:  "Courage is rightly esteemed the first of human qualities, because it is the quality which guarantees all others."

 

Many years later at a university commenchment speech, Maya Angelou, the legendary American writer and Civil Rights activist, would say: "Courage is the most important of the virtues, because without it no other virture can be practiced consistently."

 

Therefore, let us seek courage. By doing this, confidence will surely follow.
