A lot of people ask me, “How did you get interested in the virtue of courage?” My answer? It actually started with a profound fear!
I was never a great athlete as a kid, but one day at the local pool I “accidentally” did a complete back-flip. I went on to compete in low-board diving – until colleges started asking about my high-board diving.
I didn’t have an answer for them, because I had (and still do have) a profound fear of heights. I had to decide whether to face my fear, or walk away from another sport.
