Every day presents new tasks and new trails that test human ability more and more. Even more so, life manages to throw new and difficult emotional tasks at us almost every single day. For example, when I was a freshman, I can recall that I was not the most fit or athletic person out there, but that year of high school I participated in three sports, including football.

Conclusively, those may have just been three driving factors for everyday courage in my life, but there is a slew of different applications.
