Thriving Thursdays: Fear or Courage? (Guest Post by Teagan Riordain Geneviene)

Hi, I’m Teagan Geneviene.  Today I’m doing a guest post for our wonderful Story Telling Ape.  I’m here to encourage you to thrive.

Today I’m not thinking about how daring the feat was.  Nor am I wondering how dangerous the situation was.  I’m not even considering what extraordinary valor may have been involved.

How brave is someone when they do something they don’t fear?  Are they braver than the person who trembles in terror? 

Fear can hold us back.  But to overcome fear is to thrive.  If you see a person, daunted by distress, who dives into the fray despite their dread — then you have witnessed courage.

Courage is being scared to death — and saddling up anyway…  John Wayne

Wishing you a thriving Thursday.

Mega hugs,

Teagan

    • Hi Robert. Yes, and some people choose to define “respect” as fear too. It seems like the most frequently used path to get ahead… But for those of us who simply can’t stomach being that way — “saddle up” might be the only way to go. Hugs.

  1. Feel the fear and do it anyway… I love it, Teagan. The John Wayne cowboy image is most appropriate, for riding fear is much like riding a bronco: You don’t know if you’ll settle in or fall flat on your face; enjoy the thrill of the ride or fall prey to abject terror. But the satisfaction of overcoming fear is in a class by itself. Another great post, my friend. Hugs ♥
