Courage takes a certain amount of fear or it wouldn't be courage at all. Someone very dear in my life was recently faced with some decisions to make based on some amount of pondering that had taken place in his heart. These decisions did not come lightly, as he is a very heavy thinker and I can assure you that this is one of the (few) most courageous acts I have ever seen.

 Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage

Courage is the act of doing something in the face of the fear of the results, the not knowing the outcome. To act based on the courage of your convictions will lead you in places that are sometimes hard to walk in, or certainly not the easy path to walk down but always the best, surely.  Merriam Webster says it like this : mental or moral strength to venture persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty.  

 Courage is doing what your afraid to do,  there can be no courage unless you are scared

I don't think we are faced with decisions daily or even frequently where we have opportunity to exercise courage, but when you were last faced with such a decision did you choose courage?
