Courage is a state of mind, a whole preparation of the inner self to face the fear and execute the hesitation. Don't be afraid of your fears, they are there to let you know that a powerful level of strength will be waiting for you once you overcome them.
''Don't be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth.'' ― Rumi

These 13 quotes about being brave will help you boost your positivity and motivate your day.
“Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute experience.” ―Paulo Coelho
“You can’t be brave if you’ve only had wonderful things happen to you.” ―Mary Tyler Moore
“Courage is confidence, and confidence separates individuals who are successful from those people who settled for less in life.“ ―T. Morgan
"All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." ―Walt Disney
And finally, the most wonderful quote that I like the most, it gives me the strength to focus on what really matters and helps me organize my priorities.
Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. ― Steve Jobs
Ralph Waldo Emerson said: 'Always do what you are afraid to do.' This quote tells a lot about our nature as humans and how it is controlled by the fear to do something new or out of ordinary compared to how usual our life may be. Fear is the main enemy here, it has the power to motivate someone to succeed and make everything possible but it also may be the tool that makes some other one does nothing and only live in his comfort zone.
Well, some things are easier said than done and saying dream big, overcome fear and unleash your powers are very easy to say and take a lot of courage to do. I have always had many fears since I was young. I used to face most of my fears alone. I have overcome so many of them but there are many remaining ones too. It is life anyway! We live with so many complicated emotions inside us that we manage to improve ourselves by winning at times and getting defeated the other times.
I have to admit that the good feeling I have after making some progress with my fears is worthy of the fight. When I overcome some situation or open a new path for myself that it wasn't easy for me to go through I realize how strong I am and how tough I can get when it is needed. It is not final to have one fear you cannot defeat but it is not good to keep it bothering you without doing anything about it for so long. I have this one thing that I couldn't completely overcome, I do manage to do it and break the chains at times but it is temporary that my fear relapses again. This one thing maybe my weak point but I'm still alive and I have it on my to-do list all the time. I like the idea of doing what I fear from time to time because it gets me a better understanding of myself and my capabilities.
To conclude, just try it as a game and start with simple tasks. Get rid of your delusions of how weak you are or how difficult it is to manage. Of course, this rule doesn't go with all the situations. Some dreams are not meant to achieve leaving the space for unexpected once to replace them and some things are not meant to be ours. Nevertheless, we do our best and try hard then leave the rest to our God's willing.
Some things can only happen when we are persistent enough to let them happen. Just like sincerity can move mountains, persistence can make miracles happen. Sometimes, I feel that certain things can only be seen if I become more patient and never give up easily. I did it once, I persisted in doing that one thing, it was nearly impossible to be done, yet I never gave up. I have failed times and times, but it was something inevitably needed maybe that's why I could not let go easily until it occurred. That was the one time I remember clearly that my persistence and first of all that God has allowed it to happen. I wonder if all things I dream of would be placed before my eyes if I had enough determination and perseverance to allow them to take place? Am I not doing my very best and instead, making enough excuses for myself that I tend to move on quickly and then give up? What if I persist on this one big dream again? What if I never give up until it comes true even if it takes much time?
The amazing world we live in and the vast universe we belong to have the wonders we ought to look for and recognize. The pretty of mountains, lakes, parks and the amazing nature call for our attention to getting our minds and hearts the remedy we seek to overcome our life stress and struggles. Here are ten places of beautiful nature that will take your breath away.
1. Pyramids of Giza and The Sphinx, Egypt
The Three amazing pyramids of the ancient world and The Sphinx that are surviving for nearly 4500 years to represent one of the greatest wonders of the world. Egypt's Pharaohs have built them believing in the afterlife to be their pyramid tombs. They filled them with their treasures they would need to rule again in the next world.
Pharaoh Khufu has built the largest pyramid in Giza which is 147 meters high with nearly 2.3 million stones each weights average of 2.5 to 15 tons. It was built over a period of twenty years. The second pyramid was built by the Pharaoh Khafre who was Khufu's son. Its cemetery included the Sphinx, a spectacular limestone which has a lion-shaped body and the head of a pharaoh which is 20 meters high and 73 meters long. The Sphinx has been deteriorated over time but it was renovated again. It has lost its nose when Napoleon soldiers used it as a target for their practice. And the last pyramid was built by Khafre’s son, Menkaura with a height of 70 meters.
The view of the pyramids and the Sphinx at the sunrise and the sunset is amazing. Watching how huge they are and how much effort needed to complete them makes one really amazed.
2. Tianzi Mountains, China
Tianzi mountain is located in the Wulinyuan Scenic Zhangjiajie City. For people who are addicted to the beauty of nature, they can find inspiration there. Its peak is covered with snow with a view of Sea with clouds and wavelike rocky peaks in the winter. This is one of the places I really want to visit in China. That mountain was formed as a result of rock erosions through millions of years to result in stratified layers which developed different coloring and shape through the time and was incised by water and wind to be seen as weathered and slender towers (some as tall as about 4,100 feet). They look great like big skyscrapers.
3. Victoria Falls, Zambia, and Zimbabwe
One of the most wonderful attractions to Zambia and the largest waterfall in the world with more than hundred meters height and one-kilometer length. It's existed on Zambezi River which is the 4th largest river in Africa as it's located between Zambia and Zimbabwe.
It's named there '' The Smoke Of Thunders'' because the sound of the falls can be heard from 40 kilometers distance and the splash and sprinkles from the water can rise to over 400 meters height and seen from 50 kilometers distance.
They were formed in a zone of crustal faults. On the flow peak, many islands divide the main flow into various divisions. On floods, the flow capacity of water gets half a million liters of water per minute. When it is dry like on October, the water levels drop significantly that people can walk on some parts there, while throughout the year especially on April it becomes at its peak as it is the rainy season there.
4. Boseong County, South Korea
Boseong-gun is a county in South Jeolla province in South Korea. It has large areas of mountains such as Mangil-Bong, Jonje Mountain and Joowol Mountain. There is also Boseong River which flows through the center of Boseong. It is one of the rainiest places in South Korea.

It's stressing to have the same daily routine for years without any change. Working, eating, sleeping and some activities which maybe not even pleasant for us. To break off such boredom, you ought to have something that brings out the sincere laughter of your soul. If you look into your heart carefully, you will be able to see what makes you happy. And if you cannot find that thing or things, you can just start creating them from this moment! It's not hard and it's even worth trying.
When you do something you love once a day, you will find the patience to endure any hardship that faces you with a light heart. It will bring out the best of you which will reflect positively on your purposes and goals. You will always look forward to doing it just like meeting a lover. You can put up with anything with a motivation to have that lovely time. Our hearts get hard and dull while living through our own struggles. We owe them a breather from time to time to have them healthy. It's absolutely your right to have time for yourself and for your personal joy. It's part of working hard and at the same time will be part of the good results you are hoping for.
