Let’s Display Our Courage Before The Whole World

“Perfect valor consists in doing without witness all that we should be capable of doing before the whole world.”

-Francois De La Rochefoucauld

Being and remaining courageous when facing certain adversity in life is something we all strive to embody each and every day. Although this is an ambitious goal for us to try and achieve, things may not always go according to plan. Often times we expect perfection from ourselves when we all know this is a nearly impossible feat. Or is it? French author Francois De La Rochefoucauld reminds that when we perform perfect valor (courage) we choose to utilize our God given talents and skillsets to do our best work for the betterment of others, not because we want our efforts to be recognized but because it is what is necessary to make this world a better place.

The world is our stage to do great things for others if we choose to do so but we should never seek praise or expect it for our efforts because that is not the true purpose in life. It is, I believe to serve, lead and inspire others to be their best selves in a world of limitless possibilities and opportunities. It starts with us so let’s decide to make it all happen today.

What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards developing your responsible decision making skills?
