An important takeaway from this Edge is that you can’t plan to be courageous, but you can choose it. Courage can be learned. People with courage can summon it from within to act in situations of stress, conflict, or ambiguity. Courage can make the difference between talk and action.

To support you in the challenges you face, remember that courage is the ability to take on fear.
