Looking At Courage Once More

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty 0575737

Randy PauschWith REALTORS griping about business being down in certain areas of the country due to supply and demand issues, my retort to them often is "give me a break!" Buck up, bucko! What you need is a dose of courage in hard times. Some don't even know what courage is. Courage is not just not being "afraid." It is doing what you have to do despite fear and coping with things the best you can with the cards you are dealt. In the face of death, some truly show lots of courage. It's not fun, but you have to get through it. Here is a look at courage once more through the eyes of

Randy Pausch, Carnegie Mellon professor dying of pancreatic cancer. (11:32)

It's not dying that is hard, but the real work of living!

Gary, a friend and I were just talking about Randy the other day. What a fabulous example he sets for us about perspective. Feeling sorry for myself? I think not. Have a great Monday1

Norma: He knows if his days are numbered, he wants to leave his words and image behind.

Colleen: Did I ever tell you we have like minds? We all have nothing ourselves to feel sorry about in comparison.

Gary, I watched his presentation for the first time on You Tube last week.  It was so inspirational, that I found another one of his lectures that was an hour long.  I loved his positive attitude and his message.  Great statement, "It is not the dying that is hard, but the real work of living."  I'm gonna have to start keeping track of all these great quotes that you are coming up with.
