Concentrate On Courage
Courage is the backbone of man. The man with courage has
persistence. He states what he believes and puts it into execution.
The courageous man has confidence.
He draws to himself all the moral qualities and mental forces
which go to make up a strong man.
Whereas, the man without courage draws to himself all the
qualities of a weak man, vacillation, doubt, hesitancy, and
unsteadiness of purpose. You can therefore see the value of
concentration on courage. It is a most vital element of success.
The lack of courage creates financial, as well as mental and
moral difficulties. When a new problem comes, instead of looking
upon it as something to be achieved, the man or woman without
courage looks for reasons why it cannot be done and failure
is naturally the almost inevitable result.
This is a subject well worthy of your study. Look upon everything
within your power as a possibility instead of as merely a
probability and you will accomplish a great deal more, because
by considering a thing as impossible, you immediately draw
to yourself all the elements that contribute to failure.
Lack of courage destroys your confidence in yourself. It destroys
that forceful, resolute attitude so important to success.
The man without courage unconsciously draws to himself all
that is contemptible, weakening, demoralizing and destructive.
He then blames his luck when he does not secure the things
he weakly desires.
We must first have the courage to strongly desire something.
A desire to be fulfilled must be backed by the strength of
all our mental forces. Such a desire has enough commanding
force to change all unfavorable conditions.
The man with courage commands, whether be is on the battlefield
or in business life.
What is courage? It is the Will To Do. It takes no more energy
to be courageous than to be cowardly. It is a matter of the
right training in the right way. Courage concentrates the
mental forces on the task at hand.
It then directs them thoughtfully, steadily, deliberately,
while attracting all the forces of success, toward the desired
end. Cowardice on the other hand, dissipates both our mental
and moral forces, thereby inviting failure.
As we are creatures of habits, we should avoid persons that
lack courage. They are easy to discover because of their habits
of fear in attacking new problems. The man with courage is
Start out today with the idea that there is no reason why
you should not be courageous. If any fear-thoughts come to
you cast them off as you would the deadly viper. Form the
habit of never thinking of anything unfavorable to yourself
or anyone else. In dealing with difficulties, new or old,
hold ever the thought, "I am courageous."
Whenever a doubt crosses the threshold of your mind, banish
it. Remember, you as master of your mind control its every
thought, and here is a good one to often affirm, "I have courage
because I desire it; because I need it; because I use it and
because I refuse to become such a weakling as cowardice produces."
There is no justification for the loss of courage. The evils
by which you will almost certainly be overwhelmed without
it are far greater than those which courage will help you
to meet and overcome. Right, then, must be the moralist who
says that the only thing to fear is fear.
Never let another's opinion affect you; he cannot tell what
you are able to do; he does not know what you can do with
your forces. The truth is you do not know yourself until you
put yourself to the test. Therefore, how can someone else
know? Never let anyone else put a valuation on you.
Almost all wonderful achievements have been accomplished after
it had been "thoroughly" demonstrated that they were impossibilities.
Once we understand the law, all things are possible. If they
were impossibilities we could not conceive them.
