Courage is doing what you're afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you're scared.

Come to the edge, He said. They said, We are afraid. Come to the edge, He said. They came. He pushed them... and they flew.
The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheaply, we esteem too lightly; 'Tis dearness only that gives everything its value.
When we are sure that we are on the right road there is no need to plan our journey too far ahead. No need to burden ourselves with doubts and fears as to the obstacles that may bar our progress. We cannot take more than one step at a time.
Obstacles are like wild animals. They are cowards but they will bluff you if they can. If they see you are afraid of them... they are liable to spring upon you; but if you look them squarely in the eye, they will slink out of sight.
Obstacles are necessary for success because in selling, as in all careers of importance, victory comes only after many struggles and countless defeats. Yet each struggle, each defeat, sharpens your skills and strengths, your courage and your endurance, your ability and your confidence and thus each obstacle is a comrade-in-arms forcing you to become better or quit. Each rebuff is an opportunity to move forward; turn away from them, avoid them, and you throw away your future.
We are built to conquer environment, solve problems, achieve goals, and we find no real satisfaction or happiness in life without obstacles to conquer and goals to achieve.
In each age men of genius undertake the ascent. From below, the world follows them with their eyes. These men go up the mountain, enter the clouds, disappear, reappear, People watch them, mark them. They walk by the side of precipices. They daringly pursue their road. See them aloft, see them in the distance; they are but black specks. On they go. The road is uneven, its difficulties constant. At each step a wall, at each step a trap. As they rise the cold increases. They must make their ladder, cut the ice and walk on it., hewing the steps in haste. A storm is raging. Nevertheless they go forward in their madness. The air becomes difficult to breath. The abyss yawns below them. Some fall. Others stop and retrace their steps; there is a sad weariness. The bold ones continue. They are eyed by the eagles; the lightning plays about them: the hurricane is furious. No matter, they persevere.
For a long time it seemed to me that real life was about to begin, but there was always some obstacle in the way. Something had to be got through first, some unfinished business; time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.
It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.
Every time you win, it diminishes the fear a little bit. You never really cancel the fear of losing; you keep challenging it.
It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live.
Anything I've ever done that ultimately was worthwhile... initially scared me to death.
Do what you fear and fear disappears.
Winners are those people who make a habit of doing the things losers are uncomfortable doing.
One of the greatest discoveries a man makes, one of his great surprises, is to find he can do what he was afraid he couldn't do.
Always do what you are afraid to do.
Do the thing you fear to do and keep on doing it... that is the quickest and surest way ever yet discovered to conquer fear.
If you want to conquer fear, don't sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy
The first duty of man is to conquer fear; he must get rid of it, he cannot act till then.
Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.
We must travel in the direction of our fear.
A desire can overcome all objections and obstacles.
As long as a man stands in his own way, everything seems to be in his way.
I am not an adventurer by choice but by fate.
We are the men of intrinsic value, who can strike our fortunes out of ourselves, whose worth is independent of accidents in life, or revolutions in government: we have heads to get money, and hearts to spend it.
The test of an adventure is that when you're in the middle of it, you say to yourself, 'Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home.' And the sign that something's wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure.
If we do not find anything very pleasant, at least we shall find something new.
There are two kinds of adventurers: those who go truly hoping to find adventure and those who go secretly hoping they won t.
A large volume of adventures may be grasped within this little span of life, by him who interests his heart in everything.
We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.
Man needs difficulties; they are necessary for health.
For glory gives herself only to those who have always dreamed of her.
The greater the difficulty, the greater the glory.
There is no greater glory than love, nor any greater punishment than jealousy
The Promised Land always lies on the other side of a Wilderness.
The mere fact that you have obstacles to overcome is in your favor...
A barrier is of ideas, not of things.
You are the only real obstacle in your path to a fulfilling life.
The obstacles you face are... mental barriers which can be broken by adopting a more positive approach.
The senses have been conditioned by attraction to the pleasant and aversion to the unpleasant: a man should not be ruled by them; they are obstacles in his path.
All glory comes from daring to begin.
Real glory springs from the silent conquest of ourselves.
The nearest way to glory is to strive to be what you wish to be thought to be.
Adventure is not outside man; it is within.
