Why Courage is so important!
Courage is not the absence of fear, worry, or concern. Courage is moving inspite of your fear. You keep moving, stay the course with your vision, make the hard decisions that in the long run will fulfill your mission. Where most leaders fall short here, is that they disregard, stuff, or try to ignore all the negative feelings and emotions that they experience in times of distress. Emotions that are completely par for the course of being a human being, but often the leader tries to ignore these because of the demands and pressures of leadership. This actually hinders their ability to be courageous and make wise choices.
