I believe there are many qualities to bravery. A person can learn more about themselves, and more about other people. Also, they feel good when they do something that almost makes them feel like a superhero. Someone's bravery can save someone else's life, or change their life forever. My definition of bravery is that it can be shown by an individual taking the chance to believe something that they don't know much about. It is also to do something that someone has never done before, maybe while facing their fears at the same time. It reveals a great sense of character and it takes a lot of courage to be brave.

I think that bravery has many qualities some including passion and courage. But I also think that bravery is a quality in itself. I would define bravery as somthing that a person has when they truely care about something and they have to do something that may be a little scary but still have the courage to do it because they truely care.

What are the qualities of bravery? Bravery is a combination of courage, trust, and strength. In order to be brave there must be the courage to take the first step. In order to be brave there must be trust that this is the right decision. In order to be brave there must be strength in believing that this is the right decision. I define bravery as a combination of courage, trust, and strength; however, this does not come from myself, but from Jesus Christ. Jesus provides the courage I need in order to take the first step. Jesus provides the trust to expel my doubt. Jesus provides me with the strength to make the right decision.

Bravery is something to describe heroes and leaders but bravery I think is more than just an adjective. Its more of a verb. Bravery is when you are not afraid of anything and you will do anything to get what you want. Bravery doesn't just belong to the good side of things. I define bravery as a verb that will make you do everything and anything to get or do what you want. Bravery is hard to come by and is very special when you figure out you possess it.

Bravery is often used when someone does something heroic. For example, firemen are considered brave for what they do. But i think that anyone can be brave. Every person faces challenges in life that sometimes take bravery t get passed. I think that the qualities if bravey are courage, passion, and strength. When a person is brave they must care about something enough to make the decision to do something that takes bravery. My defineition of bravery would be when a person risks something and makes a decision that takes courage.

Bravery has many qualities. Bravery has the qualities of strength, courage, trust, and passion. There are many ways to define bravery, but to each person bravery might be something different. To me, to be brave is to take on something that you never thought you could because you have passion for it. It may be scary, and you may feel little bits of doubt but bravey allows you to push through and overcome these things. To be brave you must have courage and trust that what you're doing, you're doing for all the right reasons. You have to have passion to overcome the obstacles that are presented so that you can achieve or handel whatever it is you are doing. Being brave is not easy, and there are many different levels of bravery for different kinds of people.

I feel that the qualities of bravery are strength in seemingly insurmountable situations and the courage to stand up for what you believe in. I define bravery as standing up for what you believe in, having the courage to fight the fights that need to be fought and doing whats right. Most peoples' views of bravery are the same as mine, but the people who actually have true bravery are the ones' who can do what they feel is right no matter what. I would say that I am not a very brave person. I sometimes have trouble doing the right thing and standing up for what I believe in, but I always try my hardest to do whats right and get what needs to be done, done.

Bravery is simply when someone is not afraid to take a chance. Although most people would define bravery as quality that you would find in someone who is a hero; this quality can apply to heros and criminals as well as everyday citizens. I think everyone has a little bit of bravery in them no matter how small the amount is the fact is that we all take chances in our life and we need to be brave in order to do that.

Bravery is not being afraid to do something. If someone is brave, they have the confidence to go out and try their hardest and they don’t spend time worrying about possible consequences. The qualities of bravery are: confidence, trust, and being able to go with the flow. If you are confident that you can do it, and you trust the people with you, and you can go with the flow and adapt to situations, then you are brave.

JeniC said...

I believe that bravery has many qualities, but mainly the ability of a person to stand against something they believe is wrong. To build to that though, a person must have other qualities. A person must have confidence in their cause and courage to stand out. I define bravery as a person being courageous enough to stand out for a cause they believe in. Many have mentioned heroes, and bravery is what creates a hero.

Bravery is something you do not just get. To be brave means that your facing something that you may be afraid of or have doubt that you wont be able to do it but you do. Bravery is a combination of courage and a passion about something.

AprilH said...

I believe some qualities of bravery are strength and courage. To me those two qualities are the most powerful because those two are basically what it takes to be brave in my opinion. I define bravery as doing something that you are afraid of or being courageous and helping others. Being brave helps you become a stronger person. I agree with Rachel when she says that it takes a lot of courage to be brave because you are standing up to something that you are fighting or afraid of.

To me, bravery is having control and the mental ability to tell yourself you can. Bravery can come through to most people but in many different ways. For me, my true bravery shows when someone I care about is in a situation. I automatically pull myself away from my own conscience and do what is best for them. I tie bravery to our “deep, deep question’s” assignment that we had because to be powerful takes bravery from the heart to get to that level of achievement. So bravery doesn’t have to show verbally necessarily but it shows through emotions and assistance for another.

Macy said...

When I think of bravery I think of a fearless leader. Everyone at some point has bravery, no matter how small it might be. People take chances and risks everyday, and that simply shows that you are brave. When you do something you have never done before, it proves that you are facing your fears and trying something new. I also consider people heroes by stepping up and being courageous.

KatieW said...

I would define bravery as putting yourself at risk to help someone else. Or also just standing up for what you think is right. The qualities of bravery include selflessness, courage, and inner strength. Most of the people who do brave things aren’t thinking about just themselves but others that need help too. It takes courage to stand up in what you want to fix because you could be going against someone of a higher authority. Finally it takes inner strength because without that, you probably wouldn’t be considered a brave person in the first place. In summary, this is how I would describe bravery and the qualities it takes to be a brave person.

NowlanS said...

The qualities of bravery are a person who goes out of their comfort zone to make an achievement. A man with no fear is brave, obviously. Bravery is when a person does something even thought the fear inside them tells them not to do it. Bravery is confidence.A brave person would not care what their fear is telling them they would accomplish the task at hand even though it is against the odds. Bravery can be when a person goes outside of what they think is comfortable and a try a new thing. Bravery is achieved when a person ignores that voice in their head that is telling the person to stop. Bravery can be a variety of things but mainly it is over coming fear.

Bravery is defined as fearlessness, but I feel that bravery is more about conquering your fears and less about being heroic. Some qualities of bravery are confidence, inner strength, and courage. Being brave is being able to standing up for yourself and what you believe in, and also taking the consequences for your actions, whether they are good or bad.

Jake H said...

I think that many things tie into bravery. I believe that the more you try to be brave the harder it is for you to actually become brave. My definition of bravery is someone who intentional tries to save yourlife or someone else's not knowing the situation or the risks they are taking.

Nicole said...

The first thought that comes to one's mind is that bravery is doing an action without fear. However, bravery can also be interpreted as conquering fear in order to do something; an interpretation I agree with whole-heartedly. To do something without fear to me says that someone is acting on ignorance. It's easy to do something if you don't know what consequences lay at the end. Though when someone knows what might happen and still goes through it against all odds is true bravery.

alenav said...

I think that a person that is truly brave has to possess a few important qualities. The first would have to be being able to face their own fears, with courage and pride. Going into something that you know nothing about with your head up and high expectations is what makes a person brave. Having passion and courage for whatever it is that person wants to do or prove shows a lot of bravery.

georged said...

There is no such thing as bravery! What we refer to as bravery is nothing more than ordinary people doing what must be done. Being brave is simply doing what you believe in, and leaving other people in shock because they are too week of spirit to do it themselves. Sometimes if something you do that others call brave, is only reckless and stupid. Sometimes it is heroic, but just because something is heroic does not mean it requires bravery. All it means is that the person doing it had the will to do it, and other people did. To those others, the person appears "brave." Bravery is the illusion of the masses when something is done that they would not dare do themselves.

BrianW said...

My definition of bravery is to do something heroic or outstanding to the other people. It also needs courage, strength, and the willing to take a chance that could risk your life. Some brave people that come to my mind are the military, police, and fire men. These people have all of these traits that are required to be brave. These kinds of people are brave because they save life’s and fight for what they believe in. I do belive im not brave compared to these people because I can’t stand up for what I believe in.

nilec said...

I believe bravery is a very important characteristic that includes many qualities. Some of these qualities include being able to stand up wjat what you believe and sometimes go against what is said to be the right thing to do. Everyone had bravery, but some are able to display this bavery more effectivly.

Liap said...

I believe that there is one quality to bravery, which is the thought that some things are worth pushing through your fear for. I believe that true bravery is when someone chooses what to be brave for, and uses their bravery only for things that are important to them. Bravery is not just the absence of fear, or the ability to do something stupid and not be scared to do it, but rather the need to get through something important, and pushing past fears and doubts. Bravery is a quality that should only show through at specific,important times.

ddenton76 said...

I think Bravery is the courage to do something that everyone else is scared to do, and it is the courage to stand for what you believe in no matter the Consequences. It is the will to take risks for someone else

Pye said...

I think the definition of bravery is the willingness to stand up for what is right despite what other people may think. It doesnt take bravery or courage to jump on a bandwagon for a cause you believe in but it takes real bravery to advocate for something that your friends and family might not agree with.

michellev said...

i believe bravery is facing your own fears. I can be from the littlest fear to the biggest fear. Its not jumping off the biggest bridge and seeing how close you can get to killing yourself without doing it. For some maybe its letting people into their life. Or others letting go of people they weren't ready to let go of. Or maybe it was facing the monster under the bed. Its facing the thing you are afraid of, or doing something for someone you love.

annies said...

Bravery can be many different things. It can be killing someone who needs to be killed, or standing up to someone powerful. In Macbeth, it is killing who needs to be killed. But in this world, it is all about being who you are without being afraid of what people will say or do. bravery is also when you face all of your fears.

adamc said...

I think that bravery is courage, trust, and just a little but of stupidity. I think that being brave is over rated and that if you are brave then it is because you did something courageous to endanger your life but save someone else's.
