Fearless. Scared, but not letting fear stop me!
Action stops fear. Get out and defy it. The main purpose of fear is to keep us alive and out of trouble. Consequently, it also takes out most of the fun in life. It awakens in the presence of uncertain things, in the face of ambiguous endings. Just when it gets interesting. It will make us doubt that we can do it and it will call for retreat when we need to proceed.
Fear itself is not our enemy. It is the sum of everything we’ve been told to believe in. It is the limits we’ve put on ourselves. Another word for not believing that we can do it. And we usually can do far more than we ever expected to do.
Fear will shoot adrenaline high in your blood, your senses will get sharper, your reaction, speed and creativity enhanced. Use it! To find out how high you can jump, ignore the trumpets of fear and jump. Do not let the frantically beating heart, sweaty palms and dry mouth stop you. Let go of the handles the fingers are desperately clenching on to. Move closer to the edge and jump off it! Fearlessly kissing fear goodbye.
