Courage is the choice and willingness to confront agony, pain, danger, uncertainty, or intimidation, Or the ability to do something difficult even when it is risky.
I was watching a movie titled elevator baby, it prompted me to write on courage. The so-called spoilt brat helped a pregnant woman to bring a baby to life. Let me give you a quick summary of the movie. Sit back relax and enjoy
Darey came from a wealthy family and he derives pleasure in lavishing his mother’s money on alcohol, womanizing, and doing all sorts of dirty deals that a responsible child should not do. His mother froze his account and he was left with nothing to gallivant with.
Because he had no money to party with, Darey decided to look for a job because he feels he can’t beg his mum for money. All the places he went to for interviews were asking for years of experience and Darey had no experience at all in the field.
Courage: A Choice Or An Attitude?
One day, Darey went to a company as usual in search of a job and he met with a pregnant woman inside the elevator and because there was a power failure, they were both stuck in the elevator. He tried calling for help but he was not successful. Did I tell you that the woman’s water had already broken? Oh yes! She was having a contraction and our dear Darey knows nothing about it since he is not a doctor. In the long run, he was able to call his girlfriend and the girlfriend had no option than to call his mum. The mum called her new husband because her first husband who was Darey’s father had died in a motor accident. Darey hated the new husband. The new husband who is a doctor spoke with Darey on the phone and he gave him directions on how to help the pregnant woman deliver her baby.
After all, was said and done, Darey summoned up courage and helped the woman. Although it was not easy he tried his best even when the woman was weak, he made sure she was active. Darey became the elevator doctor. Wow!!! Darey was the hero and he was the talk of the town.
It takes a lot of courage to do those things you feel you can’t do. Courage is most important along with every virtue because, without courage, Darey will not have helped that woman.
I believe being courageous is a choice and an attitude, what about you?
There are so many ways we can be courageous. Sometimes courage involves laying down your life for something bigger than yourself, or someone else. Sometimes it involves giving up everything you have ever known, or everyone you have ever loved, for the sake of something greater. The truth is when you do a positive thing, you become happy and proud of yourself. Be Courageous!!!
