Courage is a seven-letter word that packs a million dollar punch toward living a better life. You see you must be courageous enough to withstand, obstacles, opposition, your own self doubt (and sometimes pity) to continue forward toward "better". Every single day, when we endeavor to be better we are living. Every single day we fail to work toward better (not matter the reason), we begin dying inside. To want something and to will something are two different things. People say all of the time they "want to live a better life". Willing it to be so, is the next level, and you'd better pack your courage on that journey - you will be tested.
