How do you define courage? Is it doing the right thing no matter what the consequences are to yourself? Is it forging ahead when you know it’s right to do so even though you are fearful? Is it making a stand for what is right and true even when the odds are against you? Is courage taking a real risk towards ourselves to honor the ideals of truth and honesty? I think those are pretty good definitions of courage.

Many people define what something is by giving examples that we all can relate to in our own lives. Everyone knows that fire fighters are courageous. They rush into burning buildings to save people and pets at the risk of their own lives. But what about the woman with little children, who is penniless with no one to turn to when her husband beats her, that decides to flee into the night rather than expose her children to anymore abuse? Is she showing courage for fleeing a situation she entered into of her own free will? Yes, most definitely she is courageous! She must face the unknown not only for herself, but for her children that depend upon her. As Mark Twain said, “Courage is not the absence of fear. It is acting in spite of it.”

So if someone knowingly faces a perilous situation for profit, does that still qualify as courage on their part? Does a lion tamer possess courage? Would it make any difference to the lion in it’s decision to attack the lion tamer if it knew the lion tamer was getting paid for his job? Of course not! Then we can surmise that the lion tamer’s courage is real. What about people the people who do stunts for the movies? Are they courageous even if they know that all possible precautions have been taken to ensure their safety? Yes, they are courageous, for something could still go wrong with the stunt.

Does the student who stands up to the school bully possess courage? Most definitely! How about the student who stand up in front of the class to read their report? Does that require courage on their part? A resounding yes! How about the student who decides to try out for cheerleading, or basketball, or football, or even the chess team? Are they showing courage? Yes.

Courage is something we all possess and use every single day. We might not be aware of it, but we use it nonetheless. We exhibit courage when we take a risk that we might be embarassed, or hurt, or humiliated, or beatup. Even if we don’t reach our goal, to try is to show courage. Courage is noble virtue. “Courage you have, and the knowledge that we are all pilgrims together, wending through unknown country, home.” - Giovanni Giocondo

Courage is not something that comes from flying to your heart in moments of need or in emergencies. Courage is not something that can be handed over to you through lessons either.

Courage is a way of life. It is as much a habit as anything else. Like getting up and brushing your teeth in the morning, or drinking coffee.

It’s a matter of routine more than anything else.

People tend to speak of courage only in terms of deeds. For instance, they might speak of courage in the battlefield. Soldiers and policemen are supposed to show courage. Or they might refer to courage in the face of devastation. Flood-affected people or earthquake victims must show courage.

However, courage is not merely the name you can give to your putting up with a bad situation. After all, in a bad situation, there is not much one can do expect cope with whatever strength and forbearance you can muster.

But though we don’t notice it, a lot of courage is part of our routines. The man who gets into a blocked sewer shows courage. The man who tills the land, not knowing whether he will have a good monsoon shows courage. The woman who resists the temptation to lavish goodies on her children shows courage. The child who breaks a leg on the football field but goes back to the game later shows courage. The student who is bent on following his dreams shows courage.

The real test of courage is in our daily lives. Or should be.

The courage to speak the truth. All the time. Because lies are the biggest and most obvious sort of cowardice that all of us hide behind.

The courage to speak our mind and not stay silent, simply because we are afraid that other people might not agree with us. Of course, there will be conflicting views. And of course, conflict is unpleasant. But not speaking your mind can lead to much worse unpleasantness.

The courage to stand up for what we believe in. The courage to follow public rules and laws and insist that other people follow them too. The courage to resist those who take easy ways out, which only leads to more corruption and red tape in our social systems.

Mark Twain has said, Courage is not the absence of fear. It is acting in spite of it.

The sign of a courageous person, then, is someone who is feels, fear, recognizes fear and still goes on to do what he or she believes is right.
