Sometimes its easy to lose track of the meaning of words through context.

Recently, I was sharing a conversation with a co-worker and he mentioned the word courage and encourage in close proximity.  So often when I hear the word encourage I think of lifting someones spirits or creating positive feelings.  Rarely do I think of courage.  Interestingly, my life’s mission to to cultivate passion and inspire courage.  I am thinking I could simplify my mission is “to EnCOURAGE.”
