Dr. Maya Angelou lived a noteworthy life. Her teachings and way of being positively affected the lives of many people, around the world.
In one of her quotes I treasure, she said: “One isn’t’ necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can’t be kind, true, merciful, generous or honest.”
Maya Angelou found, or she might say created, the courage to live her potential, full out. She once said she found the courage to be kind and truthful, and pursue her dreams and desires, even as she shook with fear. Her life is a beacon of inspiration.
What greatness is your life calling you to, even if you’re trembling with fear? Like Maya Angelou, you and I can generate the courage to live true to our potential.
