Get your courage on

I learnt about courage from two of my favourite  screen characters,  Atticus Finch and Rocky Balboa.  The behaviours that both these characters displayed had a huge impact on me and I have often thought about what they would do when I have been in situations where I have needed to stand my ground.

You can imagine how I felt when, recently someone I truly respect thanked me for my courage.  It was the highest compliment I could ever receive.

I’ve been reflecting on courage and what it means.  I know that to Atticus Finch, courage is all about the ability to  keep going even when you know you can’t win.  Rocky’s idea of courage is that it doesn’t matter how many times you get hit, it’s how many times you get back up that counts.  To me, courage is about standing up for what is right, even if it means putting yourself in the firing line.

If I can make a difference by being courageous, by standing up for what is right, by challenging those things that just don’t make sense and by encouraging others to do the same, then together we might just change the world!
