BBETTERDAILY: Courage or Comfort- Not Both

“You can choose courage or you can choose comfort. You cannot have both.” -Dr. Brene Brown
“Courage is the most important of all of the values because without courage you can’t practice any of the others.” – Maya Angelou

“You get from this life what you have the courage to ask for.” -Oprah Winfrey


Stephen King grew so frustrated over his attempt to write the novel “Carrie” that he threw away the entire early draft. King’s wife Tabitha found the manuscript in the trash, retrieved it and encouraged him to finish it. “Carrie” became a hit and launched his career. His novels have since sold over 350 million copies.

With the support of his wife, an inherited gift of writing from his father, persistence he learned from his mother, who also taught him to be an avid reader at the age of 4,  Stephen King turned what he thought was garbage into a literary career like no other!
