TOP 10 PAULO COELHO QUOTES ON COURAGE

Updated: Jul 2

In the process of living, I am the one responsible for identifying, connecting to and living my own purposeful life.

I believe living a life of purpose begins and ends with Courage. It takes courage to open up and face your truth, to be honest with yourself.


Clearly, there are many hindrances and roadblocks along the path of purposeful living.


In my own life the biggest has been fear. The fear of showing vulnerability. The fear of being judged. The fear of rejection, fear of failure, fear of being alone, fear of the unknown and uncertainty. There was fear everywhere I turned.



Until one day I just got sick and tired of living in fear. Paulo Coelho and his books has inspired me to brave difficulties and pursue the life that I wanted.

Living With Courage


In a conversation about some of the worlds great revolutions with a friend who grew up in Russia the point was made that one of the conclusions an oppressed people must come to is they "just can't live this way anymore."


This is the point at which the pain of being oppressed becomes greater than the pain of facing the fear. Fear is an oppressive bully and thief. The way to conquer it is to face up to it with confidence and courage. The feeling comes over you that something has got to change and it has to change now! Perhaps you've known this feeling.



I have come to the conclusion (and of course you must arrive at your own) that no one, no situation, no experience, is going to deter me from living the rest of my life on what I believe is the course of my PURPOSE.


Eventually, one way or another I will die. But, in the process of living, I am the one responsible for identifying, connecting to and living my own purposeful life. To live any other way would be to not live fully.


What courage do I need to call on? I summon my courage to let go of perceived past wrongs, of regrets, hurts. Things that are done, are done. I look and live forward.



I let go of blaming and anger, release jealousy, envy and any feelings of scarcity, helplessness or hopelessness. I'm continually building and healing myself.


It takes courage to accept responsibility for my own success and happiness. The courage to live on Purpose. The courage to be real. The Courage to be me.

10 Must Read Books of Paulo Coelho


You decide when you're ready to move to the next step in your purposeful evolution. Look around. You'll find a book, a friend, a coach, a spiritual guide or teacher to help you uncover your own true connection to yourself, your truth and your purpose. Maybe you'll even be that friend, guide or teacher for someone else, which will be part of your own journey.


I am truly grateful for others who showed me through books, stories and in the way they live their life that I can live on purpose and be happy. The key ingredient, as I've learned, is Courage.


As always, Thanks for hanging out.

Live some. Love some. Learn some. Everyday.
