Strength, Courage and Wisdom

One of my favorite songs from one of my favorite artists, Strength, Courage & Wisdom by India.Arie, gets me motivated and helps me put things in perspective.

Strength

Resilience and fortitude build strength, the capacity to endure and excel.  Most of us only know our own strength when it is tested through trials and tribulations. Only then can we really know how much we can take. It’s amazing how much we can handle when the situation calls for us to be strong.

Courage

Courage is not the absence of fear; it is moving forward and acting even when you are afraid. I encourage myself and others to be the reluctant heroes in their life journeys because it is often the only way to reach your divine destiny.

When you find yourself stopping and questioning when it comes to next steps, ask yourself, “What am I afraid of?”  Play this song!  Get the courage to do what you know you need to do.

Wisdom

Wisdom is knowledge gained and successfully applied.  Since I have lived about a half-century, I like to think that I have some wisdom, not just the book knowledge, but important life lessons learned the hard way-from my personal and professional experiences.

Wisdom also comes from our elders, ancestors, and our guardian angels.  It is successfully applied when it is shared to help yourself and others.

Strength Courage & Wisdom Lyrics
Written and Performed by India.Arie

Inside my head there lives a dream that I want to see in the sun
Behind my eyes there lives a me that I’ve been hiding for much too long
Cause I’ve been, too afraid to let it show
Cause I’m scared of the judgment that may follow
Always putting off my living for tomorrow
It’s time to step out on faith, I’ve gotta show my faith
It’s been illusive for so long, but freedom is mine today
I’ve gotta step out on faith, It’s time to show my faith
Procrastination had me down but look what I have found, I found
Strength, courage, and wisdom
And it’s been inside of me all along
Strength, courage, and wisdom
Inside of me
Behind my pride there lives a me, that knows humility
Inside my voice there is a soul, and in my soul there is a voice
But I’ve been, too afraid to make a choice
Cause I’m scared of the things that I might be missing
Running too fast to stop and listen
It’s time to step out on faith, I’ve gotta show my faith
It’s been illusive for so long but freedom is mine today
I’ve gotta step out on faith it’s time to show my faith
Procrastination had me down but look what I have found, I found
Strength, courage, and wisdom
And it’s been inside of me all along
Strength, courage, and wisdom
Inside of me
I close my eyes and I think of all the things that I want to see
‘Cause I know, now that I’ve opened up my heart I know that
Anything I want can be, so let it be, so let it be
Strength, courage, and wisdom
And it’s been inside of me all along
Strength, courage, and wisdom
Inside of me
It’s been inside of me all along, every day I’m praying for
Strength, courage, and wisdom
To find me, yeah,
Strength, courage, and wisdom
Inside of me
I found it in me, I found it finally
I’m sure to keep it’ cause I like it, I say thank you
