The Summon Courage Manifesto

Personal Manifesto


A personal manifesto.  What rules do you live by?


The Summon Courage Manifesto

  1. Acknowledge fear.

  2. It’s impossible to get through life without experiencing adversity.

  3. We are defined not by how we react when times are great, but instead by how we respond when times are difficult.

  4. Vulnerability isn’t a sign of weakness, it’s a sign of strength.

  5. None of us have all the answers; be curious.

  6. We’re all going to die (maybe even tomorrow) so be bold in your decisions.

  7. Take time to figure out your life’s purpose, otherwise you will be rudderless.

  8. Yesterday’s crazy idea is tomorrow’s success.

  9. It’s never too late to reinvent yourself.

  10. “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.”  – Aristotle.

  11. Contribute to a cure for cancer.
