You have the amazing ability to tell yourself, "With every breath I take, I am breathing in courage."
As you breathe slowly and deeply, feel yourself taking in oxygen and at the same time feel yourself taking in more and more courage. Realize that oxygen is a gift to you from the Creator, as is the capacity to take the oxygen into your lungs and from there have it sent to all the cells of your body. This is a magnificent and brilliant system.
The Creator of the entire universe is All-powerful. Allow your awareness of His power to empower you with the courage you need to accomplish all that you can in this world.
(From Rabbi Pliskin's book, "Courage")
