Seeking Courage

Every man has his own courage, but is betrayed because he seeks in himself the courage of other persons.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

When we look outside of ourselves for support and affirmation of our acheivements (such as money, raises, bonuses, new houses, etc.) then we lose a grip on what is of most value…our sense of self = Our own worth, as we define it, not society’s definitions.
