Courage is displayed at unexpected moments.
What you do in such moments can change you, and those around you.
A Story: A spy was was sentenced to death by a Persian General. The General had a strange custom, giving condemned criminals the choice of a firing squad, or the ‘big door’.
When the General asked what will it be, the spy chose the firing squad. Turning to his aide he said, they always prefer the known to the unknown, yet we gave them a choice.
The aide asked, what is beyond the big door.. The General replied, ‘Freedom’, then he added, Few are brave enough to take that door. The dividing line between mediocrity and success is courage. That’s why David told his son Solomon upon ascending the throne: Be strong and of good courage, and do it.
