    Change without courage will not be likely. There are those who in the face of change back away and often need words to encourage them to take a chance, a risk that the change will be for the better. Experience tells us not all change is beneficial – although all change will cause learning.

    I feel that acknowledging growth comes from change is a first step. Once we begin to see value in alignment with what we believe then courage can come more naturally during times of change.
