Many great thinkers and leaders have talked about bravery or courage. The best ones speak of bravery not as the absence of fear, but as the act of facing it, triumph over it, or the ability to overcome it. That got us thinking: Maybe the whole reason we can even be brave is because we experience fear. When we think of it that way, it makes fear not seem so bad. Fear can actually give us the opportunity and power to be brave. While this is easier said than done, we believe it’s possible—and is pretty awesome.
