Courage to be Brave

Good morning/afternoon ladies, gentlemen and children. Today we’re going to talk about bravery. Bravery is another word for courage. When you act brave you are courageous. This act shows selflessness. In this article we will be talking about courage, bravery and the act of selflessness.

The first one is courage. Courage is a virtue. It involves mastering your emotions. Courageous people also have fears, but they still try to face their fears with bravery.

This is what courage means to me.” I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. “The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” ~Nelson Mandela

The next one is bravery. Bravery is about the act of standing up to others. Being brave means you can stand up for people when they really need it. “I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.” ~Leonardo da Vinci

The last one is the act of selflessness. The act of selflessness is the opposite of being selfish. When you act selfless you are able to share with others. That’s what the act of selflessness means to me. “We have observed that, in society and the world in which we live, selfishness has increased more than love for others, and that men of good will must work, each with his own strengths and expertise, to ensure that love for others increases until it is equal and possibly exceeds love for oneself.”~ Pope Francis.

This is what bravery means to me. These attributes all show up in great leaders all around the world like, Nelson Mandela, Helen Keller, Jesus Christ and Moses. Thank you for reading this article.
