We all know someone who we consider courageous in our eyes.
Yet, none of these people have jumped out of a helicopter that was about to explode.
We equate courage to these daring acts but the concrete examples in our lives usually evolve around someone who decided to stand up and stand out. To push back on the status quo. Who bent the boundaries of what we thought was possible. Who dared greatly.
Courage could be putting your life on the line but it can also be putting ourselves out there for everyone to see, and yes, be susceptible to criticism.
Which means each of us have the opportunity to be courageous.
