Nelson Mandela’s life was one of enormous juxtapositions – light and shade, ups and downs, prison and presidency.
Many a wise man has noted that it is our fears alone that stand in the way of us having what we genuinely want in life.
While it’s often the hard times that we fear, but it’s also the hard times that can make us the shiniest in the end, as long as we find the courage to actively do the shining.
“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it,” says Nelson Mandela. “The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” Hmmm…
This is no a dress rehearsal. The state of your life is exactly as you are creating it.
What are you afraid of that needs triumphing in your life, today?
