    George Clooney said it best in "Three Kings"

    "You do the thing you are afraid of most, and then get the courage afterwards."

    In general, courage means talking yourself through something you are afraid to do. Sometimes its good to do something like that just for practice. It gives you a sense of accomplishment and that makes it easier to take a risk the next time you really need to.

    Be enthusiastic, it can get you through many difficult circumstances in your life and can help you in all you do. Enthusiasm is the spark of energy and sense of interest and inspiration that ignites effort, good ideas, intention, creativity and hard work, this is how you find courage.

    It's dumb but, it works for me,

    Our U.S. Fighter pilots face danger, and get shot at EVERY DAY, it takes some set of ballz to do what they do, if they can do it, SO CAN I !

    Being brave does NOT mean that you can't be scared, bite that lip and move in on the target (even if it's HOT), the faster you get in, the faster you get out of there !

    Its about taking risks.I mean if your afraid,then you know the consequences if it goes wrong.When you take a risk, you believe in yourself.If you dont take a risk,you dont take a chance,then life would be meaningless.If you make a mistake then its something you shouldnt regret.Its something you should learn from.(Unless you gamble.Thats SO BAD.SHALLOW.USELESS.SELFISH)All you need to do is try to put yourself in another's shoes(not literally) and view yourself in another's point.You shall know if its right or wrong.You shall take faith in GOD.(if its right i mean)

    I remind myself that all of life is a gamble. The only certain thing is how we choose to react. We can only control our own actions. So I choose to react with hope, love and confidence.

    You learn.

    Just like when you were a baby, you had to take your first step.

    When you were a child, you learn how to ride a bike

    And then later you learn how to drive...

    It was scary at first... but then you got use to it.

    So you have to learn to overcome your fear.
