Most of us have far more courage than we ever dreamed we possessed.

-Dale Carnegie

"Most of us have far more courage than we ever dreamed we possessed." This quote speaks to the incredible strength and resilience that exists within each and every one of us. It reminds us that we are capable of overcoming even the most difficult challenges and achieving great things, if we are willing to tap into our inner courage and determination.

Oftentimes, we underestimate our own strength and capabilities. We may believe that we are not brave enough, or that we don't have what it takes to succeed. But the truth is, we are all capable of much more than we realize. We just need to have faith in ourselves and be willing to take a risk.

One of the keys to unlocking our inner courage is to face our fears head on. This means stepping outside of our comfort zone and trying something new, even if it scares us. It means being open to learning and growing, and embracing change.

What did I fear this year? Marketing. I didn't feel like I made something I was proud of to market it confidently. But everyone loved the product I had. However, I knew it could be better. It wasn't up to my standards. And this was my fear. I knew my truth and I just could not accept other people's truths. What if someone could make what I've created better. And I wasn't happy with that thought process at all. But I knew I wouldn't be able to sell my cupcakes if I didn't get a handle on this, so I worked on it. I did recipe test after recipe test. Took the feedback. Tweaked the necessary things. Researched what I wasn't knowlgeable on and here we are. I am now able to package and market the product as it deserves to marketed. With pride.

So, the next time you're feeling uncertain or unsure of yourself, remember the quote "Most of us have far more courage than we ever dreamed we possessed." It's a reminder that you have the strength and determination to overcome any obstacle and achieve your goals. You just have to take that first step.
