secret ingredients

I think we as human beings require two key ingredients in order for us to cultivate our courage: hope & determination. And for me, here’s what they boil down to.

Hope: Belief in possibilities from WITHOUT.

Determination: Belief in potential from WITHIN.

If we can cultivate and maintain both of these in our lives, it seems to me that we’ll always be able to find the courage to live at our best.
