The guard dog has a bad reputation! Here is why... true courage is when we are brave and afraid at the same time. Sometimes our guard dog gets louder and that doesn't always mean we are in danger. It might mean that we are about to do something important that we are a little bit afraid of. Often we see people who are 'good' at things or who have 'succeeded' and we forget about all of the hard work, set backs and failures that occurred before hand! This presentation is a short spotlight of people who have failed and/or really had to persevere and use courage to bounce back and thrive. See if you can identify other character strengths that have enabled them to succeed.
