Courage is… taking a risk, for greater good. It’s pushing past fear. Courage is fighting even when victory seems impossible.
For example, firemen save women, men and children. They may have equipment and training but,their still risking their life for the greater good of someone else. Someone uncourageous would be picking up an orange that an elderly woman dropped at the grocery store. This may be helping someone but, it’s not courageous because there's no fear nor a risk.
Fear, many times gets the best of us.Some people can learn to put their fears behind them. People like this would be people in the infantry of the army,because those are the front line guys who have the biggest chances of death. It isn’t like the less dangerous jobs in the army such as communications . Where these men never leave the base so there is almost no risk. Theses men could possibly being doing it for selfish gain. Infantry is actually in the war fighting for our country. Therefore an infantryman is courageous where a communications man is not.
Impossible. In the word is clearly says i’m possible! Courage is still fighting when victory seems too far. For example,courage is rushing into a burning building and still saving someone you already assumed was dead. The person took a chance . An uncourageous act would be pulling through a race even though you think you’ll be last.You're helping no one and there's no risk. Therefore, its not courageous.
Prakrti: Vata-PittaYour prakrti, the physical constitution with which you were born, is a mix of Vata and Pitta, with Vata slightly predominant. This is an unchanging characteristic and represents your natural, normal state of being. Let's take a look at some of the common qualities of Vata-Pitta individuals. Physically, Vata individuals tend to be thin and wiry, with small, light bones and uneven development. Pittas tend to be medium in all physical characteristics. Where Vatas are usually darker than the rest of their families, Pittas tend to be very fair skinned and to sunburn easily (think freckles). As a Vata-Pitta you may be more likely to sunburn than a pure Vata, but you are probably a lot better off than a pure Pitta. Vatas tend to have uneven or underdeveloped features, including small frames; bony, protruding joints, thin, spindly fingers; crooked noses and teeth; etc., but your Pitta influence tends to moderate those characteristics. Thus, you are probably better proportioned, stronger, and a little less flighty and high-strung than your pure Vata friends. The Pitta influence has probably increased your drive and improved your digestion, but you've most likely retained the creativity and imagination of the Vata type. And having a bit of Pitta tends to sharpen your intellect. On the down side, Vata-Pittas tend toward addictive personalities and need stability. Vatas usually have a hard time gaining weight and lose it easily. The Pitta-influence...

...inhabited by ape like creatures. All of their names were fred. Anyways... one day fred went on an adventure to fred's store to buy a pack of gum. He noticed the employee of the month had the same name as his and he purchased the gum and chewed the first piece. It was grape flavored, fred's favorite. On the way home, fred saw his best friend fred, sitting on a bench with his brown bagged lunch which had been packed 3 hours previous by fred's mother, fred. So fred went up to his best friend fred, and said, "I'll trade ya a stick of gum for one item in your lunch." Fred agreed to this with much enthusiam. Fred looked through his friend's lunch and found 3 items of interest, a bolongia sandwich
, a golden toothpick, and some tree bark. Fred's instinct was to pick the tree bark, but thinking with his head he realized he should choose the bolongia sandwich
. So fred made the wise choice and headed home with his bolongia sandwich
. He ran home so excitedly just like a monkey should. But as he got to his street, fred street, he saw that there had been a big brush fire that swept through his block and wiped out everything he held true and dear. It didn't burn his house down or anything but it melted his prized collection of wax figurines which made fred very very sad. Moving on to the next order of...

...Carving a Mountain
Mount Rushmore started in 1923 as an idea in the mind of Doane Robinson, the founder of the South Dakota Historical Society in 1901.
His idea was to have a sculptor carve a gigantic monument in the area of the Needles in the Black Hills. He thought that the subject of this monument could be Lewis and Clark, Red Cloud, John C. Fremont, or other great heroes of the American west. This would bring thousands of tourists to South Dakota and would help the economy of their state.
Soon United States Senator Peter Norbeck supported the idea and wrote to Gutzon Borglum and invited him to come to the Black Hills to find a site to carve a monument.
Gutzon and his 12 year old son traveled by horse through the spectacular granite "Needles" but found that the rough and weathered Needles would not be good for carving.
A year later they again traveled to South Dakota. They found a massive peak known as Mount Rushmore. Gutzon felt that this was the site for his gigantic sculpture. Gutzon Borglum said, "I want, somewhere in America on or near the Rockies, the backbone of the Continent, so far removed from succeeding, selfish, coveting civilizations, a few feet of stone that bears witness, carries the likenesses, the dates, a word or two of the great things we accomplished as a Nation, placed so high it won't pay to pull down for lesser purposes. Hence, let us place there, carved high, as close to heaven as we can, the words of our leaders, their faces, to show...
...The Fred Factor
Published in 2004 by Doubleday
Quest for Career and Vocation
Dr. Rob Littleton
March 29, 2012
Fred, the mail carrier who passionately loves his job and who genuinely cares about the people he serves, is constantly going the extra mile handling the mail and sometimes watching over the houses of the people on his route, treating everyone he meets as a friend. Where others might see delivering mail as monotonous drudgery, Fred sees an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those he serves.
We've all encountered people like Fred in our lives. The author, through stories about Fred and others like him, reveals the four basic principles that will help us bring fresh energy and creativity to our life and work.
The first principle is everyone makes a difference. It doesn’t matter how large an organization is, an individual can still make a difference. Nobody can prevent you from being exceptional. (Sanborn, 2004) I’m reminded of an individual who I hired while he was still in high school. At the age of sixteen, Randy was one of the hardest working people in our manufacturing plant. His initial job was sweeping floors within the sewing department of the facility. He was happy to be there and glad to have a job. Working in one of the lowest level jobs within the organization gave pride and...

...The Fred Factor by Mark Sanborn is about creating passion in your life and how that can make your life extraordinary. The book begins by explaining what the “Fred Factor” is and who it was named after. It then gives some guidelines on how to become a Fred by following a certain way of thinking. The book also goes over how to seek out and develop other Freds in your life. It concludes by giving an update on the originalFred, Fred Shea.
In the first section of the book where Sanborn describes the original Fred and examples of other Freds you are really drawn into learning more about this specific kind of person. One of the main points of the book is how anyone can be passionate about their work no matter what they do. The original Fred story is a great example of this. Learning about a US postal service worker and how he was able to affect so many of his customers in such a positive way is such an encouraging story. Being a postal worker is a position that most anyone could attain and using something as non-glamorous as this position illustrates the main point that anyone in any position can be inspirational.
One of my favorite things from the second part of this book is the idea that everyone can make a difference and nobody prevents you from being extraordinary. You hold everything you need to be an exceptional person – you don’t...
