It Takes Courage (post by Kirk Weisler)

It takes strength to be firm,
It takes courage to be gentle.

It takes strength to conquer,
It takes courage to surrender.

It takes strength to be certain,
It takes courage to have doubt.

It takes strength to fit in,
It takes courage to stand out.

It takes strength to feel a friend’s pain,
It takes courage to feel your own pain.

It takes strength to endure abuse,
It takes courage to stop it.

It takes strength to stand alone,
It takes courage to lean on another.

It takes strength to love,
It takes courage to be loved.

It takes strength to survive,
It takes courage to live.

Courage to Think and Do the Hard Stuff (post by Kirk Weisler)

courage 2

A friend once advised me saying, “Treat everyone you meet as if they were going through a major personal crisis – and most of the time you will be right.”

Each day people all around us are dealing with all that life has dealt to them.  I admire the courage and dignity of people who quietly live with such things… They seem to graciously and even enthusiastically accept whatever life sends their way.  I look at them… I learn from them… I am inspired by them.

Howard Cosell said,   “Courage takes many forms. There is physical courage, there is moral courage. Then there is a still higher type of courage–the courage to brave pain, to live with it, to never let others know of it and to still find joy in life; to wake up in the morning with an enthusiasm for the day ahead.”

Sometimes I let myself get tricked into thinking about the wrong stuff.  Not today… today I will have the courage to think about the right stuff, and to do the hard stuff.

Do you want to be scared (post by Kirk Weisler)

scared to death

Anything I’ve ever done that ultimately was worthwhile… initially scared me to death. –Betty Bender

I don’t know about “scared to death” but the truth for me is… that I was scared before my first real ‘industry related speech’ and I was scared about leaving the security of a corporate entity and trying to provide for my then young family on my own.  I was scared about everything I didn’t know about publishing a book …and I was scared about the cost of putting together my first book just to get it ready for the printer.  Then… the printing costs were scary . I mean what if no one really wanted to buy a book about Poop and Initiative?

I can make a list of the most worthwhile things in my life… and trace almost all of them back to a moment of uncertainty or fear.  While,  ’scared to death’ sounds a bit dramatic…. it is reflective of a reality.  Fear of the new and unknown is natural… overcoming it is needful.  I’ve been taught that “faith is the moving cause of all action” and that “fear robs faith”.  So if we let fear paralyze us, and stop us from going it will also stop us from growing.  We’ll just stay stuck in the muck scared to make a move and take a risk.

But if we will face our fears… with faith, courage, determination and some degree of preparation and planning…  AND THEN we act… we move, we begin to work towards our goal…we grow more and become more…and are scared less and less.  As our faith, confidence and courage grow, there is less and less room for our fears and doubts.

Soon, almost before we know it …our fears have fled and we’ve done that scary thing. We got married, quit the job or applied for a new one, write the book, called someone to apologize and begin again… we’ve chosen to Act Courageously and so we’ve become more courageous.  Or as my Rebecca says to our kids…..

Act the way you want to be and soon you’ll become the way you act. ~ Rebecca Weisler

Reminds me of that line from the movie “WE Bought a Zoo”  – “Sometimes all you need is 20 seconds of insane courage”
