What Makes Courage In Action Stories Unique

At the center of each success story is a history of defeat, hopelessness, failure, insecurity and ultimately, courage. What separates the successes from the "what if" stories are giant leaps of faith that require healthy daily doses of daring perseverance.

Sharing these stories is challenging and requires each and every person to step out of their comfort zone and be vulnerable.

Most speeches on entrepreneurship and pursuing passion focus on topics like startup secrets or how to pitch an idea to an investor. As a result, they leave out some of the largest challenges and insecurities everyone struggles with on a daily basis, making it seem impossible to overcome their own personal insecurities to become tomorrow's success story.
