Mary Anne Radmacher, author, artist and professional speaker, illustrates her personal definition of courage:
“Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day, saying: I will try again tomorrow.”
Susan – thanks for highlighting Mary Anne’s work! She’s a great encouragement with her lovely pieces of art.
Did you see this article by Angie of Angie’s List? Look at the end of the third paragraph where she calls herself an introvert:
I agree. I interpret it as persistence.
Persistence is an element of being assertive.
She’s an assertive introvert.
I am writing a book about the power unspoken thought has to change things, even as no action is taken. About how energy works in life, your energy that we often pay attention to and wish to stay “in” rather than going out of ourselves. Your convictions about life, even if you feel discouraged, afraid, intimidated, have a power greater than you can even possibly imagine. Even with no courage whatsoever, your thoughts have a courage an unmistakeable identity to the universe, a truth, a purpose and a meaning greater than most understand. Our tendency towards introversion increases when we encounter falsehood and makes us yearn for the vibrancy, genuineness and love inherent in the truth of what we really think. The meek truly do inherit the earth.
