Courage does not mean you do not get afraid.

Courage does not mean you do not get afraid. Courage means you do not let fear stop you. No matter how much we pretend to be fearless, we are not fearless at all. There is no absence of fear. We are courageous. But, courage and fear are not the two sides of a coin.

There would be something different from others. Bravery and fear exist at the same time but most of the people hate to admit it.

Having courage does not mean that we are unafraid. Having courage and showing courage means we face our fears. Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the assessment that something else is more important than fear.” said by the late Franklin D. Roosevelt.

We live in a world where there is something to fear everywhere. People constantly think that other people possess some magical button that rids them of fear.

The truth is, courageous people carry on in the face of fear. You find the courage to escape the claws of fear and carry on. The fear is still there, but you can override it with action.

Bravery is not having any fear, but rather having fear and choosing to overcome it for something that one considers greater. After all, how can you overcome fear if you do not have it in the first place. The more you know, the more you have the words to talk fear away.

An action is one of the best options for getting things done and leaving fear behind. Take comfort in the fact that everyone feels fear, it is how you mask it that develops you as a person.

Being not frightened of failing and failing again, takes courage. That is why, I do not get frightened by failure and fear but rather of failing to try again and again, until I succeed.

Courage does not mean we are not afraid anymore, it just means our actions are not controlled by our doubts.
