(5) Conquer Obstacles

Possess True Courage

To do a job right, courage is essential. We sometimes sugarcoat what we say, or refrain from doing the right thing, mostly because we do not want to be disliked by other people.

To complete a task without making mistakes, we must make the right decisions at every critical moment. In making decisions, you need courage - and not the rude, reckless courage of an outlaw, but true courage.
True courage is possessed by individuals of conviction and restraint. It is acquired by conquering your own fears and trepidation repeatedly.
