Courage or confidence, which should you choose? Choose courage because courage creates the confidence you need to have to believe in yourself. Whatever you do in life, from talking to walking, involves courageous action. All the confidence in the world will not help you get that job, will not help you talk to that girl or guy that your interested in, will not help you bungee jump or skydive. All those actions take courage, courage of your convictions. That is what helped Kris Carr, the author, face her prior cancer scare head on, especially when she did not have the confidence that she would live another 10 years. She had the courage to fight on and is now cancer free. Now, not all will have a story like Ms. Carr’s but you need to start somewhere, start next week, start today by taking courageous action to change your thinking, change your life. Once you start taking courageous action, such as applying and interviewing for job you think you are not qualified for, going over and talking to that girl or guy at the bar you had your eyes on since you walked through the door, you will soon gain the confidence you had always searched for. So start today, be courageous in everything you do because it give you the life and the confidence you always searched for. BE COURAGEOUS!!!
