Whack Your Head Wednesday

Put a Lion in Your Heart

#51 "To fight a bull when you're not scared is nothing," says a well-known bull fighter. "And not to fight a bull when you are scared is nothing. But to fight a bull when you are scared-that is something." What gives you the courage to act on your ideas?  Having a well-thought plan? Encouragement? Faith in the idea? Past  success? What puts a lion in your heart?

I've been thinking about this recently, because my son set himself a goal to ski a very long, tough run by the end of the day last week and even though no one would do it with him, and he was afraid, he did it alone. I know he gets this from me. I think the strength to do such things comes from sheer stubbornness. When you say you're going to do it, and it would be so easy to back down and no one would blame you, but YOU'D know. It's a family trait, and is part bravery, part compulsiveness, and lots and lots of grit!
