Courage often requires great vulnerability. For example, going after the promotion, asking a girl out on a date, speaking in front of a group. All these things require putting yourself out there and risking failure. Public speaking is a great example. Fear of public speaking is at the top of the list when it comes to things people fear the most. Think about all the times that you have put yourself out there and risked failure, risked embarrassment. YOU ARE COURAGEOUS! More courageous than you have given yourself credit for!
