Courage by Alok Mohan



True courage is not the absence of fear—but willingness to proceed in spite of it. There are examples of brave men having exceptional courage. In spite of knowing that they could lose their lives, they still set out to walk into thick jungles, and sail over unknown seas. What a great deal of hardships and difficulties they must have had to encounter! They were able to overcome these because of their determination and courage. Even today, men continue to display their fearlessness. Brave men dive into the depths of the oceans to discover  the mystery of the deep ocean. They fly into outer space, knowing that they may never return, and then there are those who are willing to lay down their lives in the service of their country.

I believe you have to have courage to succeed in just about everything you do. If you don’t have courage , you’d be just sitting in a corner sucking your thumb.

In life, one must have the courage to stand up for what they believe in, courage to be oneself and the courage to go out and experience new things

Bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them, glory and danger alike, and yet notwithstanding, go out to meet it. 

“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage”

  Everything depends on what is in our hearts. If we decide to ourselves that something is impossible, then, consistent with our minds in thinking so, even something that is possible for us will become impossible. On the other hand, if we have the courage that we can definitely do something, then we are already one step closer to success.


Life is the sum of experiences that we encounter as we go through life. Day to day to struggles and triumphs are experienced by all of the world’s creatures. When we encounter  challenges, we have freedom to choose how to react. Every decision that we make leads us down another road. We will never come to exactly the same crossroads. Every decision that we make has significance. The tiniest choice that is made reverberates throughout the entire universe. We can’t be useful to ourselves unless we’re useful to others. Whether we like it or not, we’re all connected, and it is unthinkable to be happy all by oneself. Anyone concerned only by his own well-being will suffer eventually. Anyone concerned with the well-being of others takes care of himself without even thinking about his fears. Even if we decide to remain selfish, let us be intelligently selfish. Courage is doing what you’re afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you’re scared.. Courage grows when you learn to resist and stand up to your fears. Courage is being without fear. Bravery is doing something regardless of your fear.

 To Sum Up “Courage grows when you can go from failure to failure without losing conviction and hope”
