“Courage is not having the strength to go on; it is going on when you don’t have the strength.” – Theodore Roosevelt
Many failures occur just before the point of fulfillment. These failures often occur when a person feels he or she doesn’t have any more strength to carry on. Oddly enough, this is the juncture at which amazing triumphs work out. The secret, however, lies not in trying harder, but in yielding more deeply to the greatness within.
One thought on “Courage”
Interesting to think on the word yielding as in surrendering and as in producing. Discerning the difference between yielding to our greatness within or our weakness without is also a worthy consideration.
Currently I am engaged in following the results of a food sensitivity test whereby I have been given a list of foods I am to eat and a list that I am not to eat. If a food is not listed on either it is considered untested and therefore not to be eaten. The intention is to follow it for three months before exploring the foods you have been noted to have a sensitivity to or the untested ones. Having a goal in mind to keep yourself compliant is essential. Another essential is preparation making sure you have on hand what is allowed in your diet. I use my example in light of your words regarding how we are to carry on into fulfillment in seeing how preparation is essential in following through what we discern our greatness within is guiding us to do.
