I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. Medal of Honor recipient and retired Marine colonel Wesley L. Fox writes about his fears in difficult operational and training situations, their effect on him, and he how he handled particular fears.

The author knows what he's writing about: He recounts a number of situations, from combat to parachuting, where he had to overcome his fear to perform his mission, or to come out of a parachute malfunction alive.
He defines courage as havi This short book is about overcoming fear with courage. He defines courage as having the mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear or difficulty. It also implies firmness of mind or will in the face or danger or extreme difficulty.
I like that definition! This book is worth reading. Mar 05, James rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Clear and forceful thoughts about the title topics - courage and fear - from someone who is well qualified to discuss them. The author is something of a folk hero within the Marine Corps for his heroism and leadership; he showed himself, over and over, to be a person who thought and acted effectively in situations of extreme danger, and just as important, one who put his principles and the well-being of others ahead of his own life.
I was lucky enough to participate in a brief chat with Colonel F Clear and forceful thoughts about the title topics - courage and fear - from someone who is well qualified to discuss them. I was lucky enough to participate in a brief chat with Colonel Fox at a social event in , and to hear him speak once the following year. He came across as quiet, matter-of-fact, and sure of himself but devoid of arrogance. He never mentioned the fact that he had won the Medal of Honor, America's highest medal for valor - in this book he briefly describes the situation and his actions, but again doesn't mention the medal, downplays the courage he showed and the unselfishness - when the fighting was over, although he was wounded, he refused medical attention until all his Marines had been treated , but candidly discusses the fact that for a lot of the time he was scared out of his wits.
Fear is rarely truthful. Fear is a cousin to lazy who always takes the path of least resistance. Fear is a thief. In truth, Fear does not sound very rewarding. So why is it that so many of us spend so much time practicing it? Courage looks something hard and scary in the face and keeps moving forward. Courage is out there. Courage requires effort and overcoming and a sense of purpose. Courage confronts and courage hopes for something better. Courage must be exercised like a muscle or it will atrophy and wither away.
Perhaps this is why so many of us spend so little time being courageous.
Why Courage Requires Fear
I have recently decided to exercise my courage. Without even consciously realizing it I had been letting fear influence and guide my decision making.
Who and what I am at this point in my life are in part a direct result of listening to my fear. But now, I am beginning to see and understand a better way.
