Braveness is not the absence of fear.

"And one has to understand that braveness is not the absence of fear but rather the strength to keep on going forward despite the fear."- Paulo Coelho.

Fear is an overkill and it never gets talked about enough and no matter what we do or say and live by, there will be a reason to fear. Overcoming fear is not by strength nor might but by a strong determination to keep doing on the pat despite the thongs and spike the paves the way.


Blessed!


Braveness does not indicate that there is no hurt or pain in life, braveness is the ability of a man to take life head on and give it his best without falling off the wagon.

Fear tries our resolve and points us in the direction of quitting.
Fear shows us the strength we have but clouds it with a not too good label that makes us not try to see what we can be and more.
Fear destroys our ability to stay focused and paints an impossible pictures that makes everything seem like a trap.
Fear tells us the disadvantages of life and everything we want to try.

We can destroy the seed of fear by not allowing the the presence of fear stop us from forging ahead.
If there exists no fear, there certainly will exist no opportunity to survive and make the best of our lives.

In life, one has to understand that braveness is not the absence of fear but rather the strength to keep on going forward despite the fear.


Make the world a better place for someone today!

You're right, braveness does not necessarily mean the absence of fear but the strength to keep on despite the fear. There was a book I once read that talked about doing it even in the presence of fear.

We experience fear in almost everything and most times discouraging us to strive further, but if we could still do it amidst the fear then we do meet with great opportunities beyond that fear-roadblock

great opportunities beyond that fear-roadblock

I like this and it is what should be in our minds when we strive for the best.

Stay Awesome!

May be we can say the ability to focus on reaching the goal, with whatever pain and difficulty, braveness is all about standing strong and a firm without making much noise..

Thanks and stay awesome!
