Live Inspired Vlog 177: Courage is a Decision

A Lesson on Dealing with Challenges

The great Winston Churchill once said, “Fear is a reaction, but courage is a decision.” Perhaps no one demonstrates this truth better than my most recent Live Inspired Podcast guest, Nando Parrado.

Nearly 50 years ago, a plane carrying Nando, his rugby team and several family members crashed into the Andes. The survivors were stranded on this cold mountain with almost no supplies and no means of summoning help.

Yet rather than give into the fear all around him, Nando chose to step up with courage and led an expedition to find them help.

In today’s #LiveInspired vlog, I share a little bit of Nando’s story, and I remind each of us what example means in our own lives.

Today, choose not to react out of fear. Rather, decide instead to act with courage.

Today is your day. Live Inspired.
