Lesson From a 4th Grader on Courage


“Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can’t practice any other virtue consistently.”
— Maya Angelou

There is a wonderful video that beautifully illustrates what it takes to be “courageous”…and it’s courtesy of a young woman who is only in the fourth grade.

As stated by the link that accompanies the inspirational video, standing at the pinnacle of a new adventure and being paralyzed with fear is a pivotal moment; do we take the plunge or step back from the tipping point?

The 4th-grade girl in this video gives us all a lesson is taking the plunge as she psychs herself up to go down a ski jump for the first time to a triumphant result.

Is there any better way to kickstart your day?
