Courage In the Community

vs. conformity

Overcoming fear to say and do what is right

To practice Courage, I will:

  • know the truth
  • get help when I am afraid
  • support others when they are right
  • be willing to stand alone
  • help those who are bullied or abused
    “Courage Strengthens all other Qualities”

    Name your top three Character strengths.  How does your Courage help you succeed in those areas?  Did you always have confidence in those Character qualities, or did you build it with your courage?  It could have been built in small steps or significant steps.  It could have been intentional or just part of growing up or maturing.  Recognizing how you have used courage in areas you have success in can make it more available for future endeavors.  You could use your Courage to strengthen a quality you want to use more.  You could also use Courage to apply your strongest qualities differently.
