Would you do good to someone you don't like?

Managing self is overrated. Knowing what you are going to do and how to do it — approach — is everything. But many mull over too much doing and do not spend enough time on thinking. That’s what I am doing right now.

I know what is right; just don’t have the courage to do it. May be writing it aloud will help me staying on the morally correct path. The only challenge is to stop the excessive thinking and focus on the big picture. Though managing self-attention is not as simple as blocking out time and turning off your devices, but mind can be shifted. I can do it.

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.

One isn't necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can't be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.

Dear Anonymous comment-er,
It would be nice if you can leave your name so that I know who you are.

Thank you.

Rajesh, yes you are. That is a good way to define courage.

What's wrong in being mean? Why should we do good to someone who isn't the same way with us?

Sometimes its too easy to talk about things like these but when it comes to apply it practically, we fail.
