I recently met a woman named Mariola Gorska. Despite a huge language barrier, she has stepped up to the plate and started her own internet radio show. My understanding is that she has to put a lot of extra time into preparation because of this language barrier. I applaud the courage it took for her to not only start her own radio show, but start a show that has everything to do with facing one of her biggest weaknesses.
I seem to keep coming across people who have stepped out and taken risks, despite incredible obstacles.
What I have learned about risk taking is that it has very little to do with emotion and whether life feels good, and mostly has to do with moving forward no matter how you feel or what your circumstances look like.
True courage is defined by what you do every day, not by the highs and lows.
