Do not let fear overcome you!!!!!!!
“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
Fear of something bad happening in the future is one of the things that make us human, says Leo Babauta.
Leo further goes on to say that animals might fear an immediate danger, that is happening right now, but only we fear something that might happen, that isn’t happening now, that isn’t even showing its ugly face at the moment.
Do you have this fear? That you’re not good enough? I have, for all my life, and I still have it today, says Leo.
“But here’s the thing: having the fear is natural. Letting it stop you from going after your dreams is a tragedy. I did this, for well over a decade of my adult life. I let the fear of not being good enough stop me from even trying, from even daring to dream,”
“It turned out that my fears were baseless. I am good enough. I’m not perfect, but who is? When I was able to overcome this fear of not being good enough, this fear of failure and rejection, and put myself out there in the world, I succeeded. I found out that I was good enough.” concluded Leo.
I live in fear. I live in fear of loosing my job, my family, catching or be infected by viruses and have fear of not having money. This does not definitely make me a coward.
This however, does not make me to not live my life or give up. But rather, as a driving force of wanting to achieve more in order to overcome any fear that I have. To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.” – Bertrand Russell
