#341: Imagine a line.
Cowardice exists at one extreme end of that line. Recklessness exists at the other extreme end.
And in the balanced middle, you’ll find courage.
Today’s conversation is about courage. We’re not talking about inspiring physical acts of bravery in this episode; rather, we’re discussing moral and social courage.
The type of courage you need to make an investment. Buy a rental property. Invest in stocks. Start a business or side hustle. Retire early. Travel overseas. Have a difficult but diplomatic conversation. Express your feelings constructively rather than bottling them up inside. Raise an issue with immediacy rather than hesitation. Break bad news to someone. Ask for help. Launch an initiative. Try something new.
We’re talking about the type of courage that’s required to become a better, bigger person in your work, your relationships, your life.
We’re having this conversation with Ryan Holiday, the bestselling author of a series of books on Stoic philosophy.
