Why Courage?

Alex Honnold is the world’s most famous free soloist. Free soloing is rock climbing with no ropes. If you fall while climbing, you will fall all the way to the ground. He states, “If I’m going to do something, it’s gonna be sick, and it’s gonna be so cool… or it’s gonna be the most hideous four seconds of my life while I just freefall to the ground.”

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to your courage. 

Every day, we can step into growth with courage, or retreat into safety.

Without people who are willing to step out and do something when they are scared, creating a culture of growth, at home or at work, is almost impossible. That kind of culture has to be developed over time with someone showing others the way.

Get people out of their comfort zone. Teach others that courage isn’t the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.
