“Sometimes you have to be aggressive about finding a way to be courageous.”

― Val Kilmer
American actor

That’s a powerful statement.

Courage has a spirit to it. Courage has might to it. Courage is honourable.

Val Kilmer, one of our most accomplished actors with many unbelievably successful movies, had one of his most courageous roles.

This wasn\’t an acting role. It was the role of courage to take a stand on cancer, and to

be healed of it. That is a courageous role, even if it is not on the screen.  It\’s a courageous role, in real life.  

Just as the cancer was very aggressive — so Val had to be aggressive.

He had to climb up steep hills! 


His courage wasn’t just a spirited will, or drive to succeed, or perseverance.  It was aggressive and hard earned and stay-with-it-and-believe you will be healed!

Sometimes we think of aggressive as perhaps “too much.” 


 Or being a Bulldog. Relentless. Bite down and never let go.


In this case, you don\’t have to be a bulldog. 

But aggressive courage does mean you do have to relentlessly pursuenever give up, until you reach your goal. 

This is still a part of this first blog post….. below. 

So where do you need to be *aggressively courageous* today?

I am supporting you to take a stand so you can right the wrong, live the right.  You can see the goodattain a higher view of living — where your peace, your rights, your health, your livelihood is at its best.


So we go back to Val, worldwide acclaimed actor and also leader, healed of cancer. He didn\’t let it hold him back. He\’s still living.   And he has 4 movies coming out. I\’d say that success.   

You might have to take a stand for courage. You might have to be aggressive to be courageousSome issues need your *never-give-up-stance*.

I’m Being Courageous Today Right With You,
