On Overcoming Fear: Be Bold, and Mighty Forces Will Come To Your Aid

"Courage! What makes a king out of a slave? Courage! What makes the flag on the mast to wave? Courage! What makes the elephant charge his tusk in the misty mist, or the dusky dusk? What makes the muskrat guard his musk? Courage! What makes the sphinx the seventh wonder? Courage! What makes the dawn come up like thunder? Courage! What makes the Hottentot so hot?
What puts the "ape" in apricot? 
What have they got that I ain't got?" 
-Cowardly Lion, The Wizard of Oz

Note to Self:
"Be Bold, and Mighty Forces Will Come to Your Aid"

In order to Make a Difference, I must be Bold.

In order to Be an example, I must be Bold.

In order to be a vehicle for change, I must be Bold.

In order to encourage others, at times I have to take a deep Breath and Be Bold.

In order to enlist a forward propulsion, I must be Bold.

And Mighty forces have

and will Continue

to come to my aid.

Reminder: This Will Require Courage.

It Resides behind Fear in the Back of your mind

You can get them to trade places

You're in charge of your Thoughts

Decide which one makes Your choices

It won't be for naught.

"You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing which you think you can not do."
-Eleanor Roosevelt
