What’s your courage quotient?
By Rosanne Tolin
Judah Maccabee and his brothers organized a small group of soldiers that defeated a much bigger Syrian army. Their strong faith in one God helped make them powerful. So when you’re feeling weak or nervous, what makes you brave? Find out your courage quotient by answering the questions in this quiz.
If you answered mostly “a”s: Congrats. Your courage quotient is a perfect 10. Like the Maccabees, you’re not afraid to fail. You know that hard work and believing in yourself goes a long way toward achieving your goals.
If you answered mostly “b”s: Good job! Being brave doesn’t always come easy, but you know the right things to do when you’re feeling scared. Keep a positive outlook, and things will get easier over time.
If you answered mostly “c”s”: Face it. Your fears, that is. If you don’t, you’ll miss out on tons of fun and rewarding experiences. Practice will help boost your self confidence. Taking deep breaths and visualizing your success will also help when you’re anxious. Even praying to God will give you extra strength to try new stuff.
