What Is Courage

Courage comes in many flavors. In general, courage is defined as the mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or adversity. It is staunchness of mind and of will. It is the strength to face opposition and not allow it to stop you. It is the strength to cope with hardship. It is maintaining your dignity when it is difficult to do so.

Courage gives you the empowerment of steely determination. It enables you to strive towards noble aspirations.

(From Rabbi Pliskin's book, "Courage")
