This week's article is all about how we let fear keep us from doing what we want to do, and what we can do about it!

The Power of Fear

The power that we give to Fear never ceases to amaze me. We allow it to control our actions and reactions, and even to affect our entire lives. I was listening to the radio when it occurred to me that fear is just an idea that we made-up. Fear is just a concept. I was in my car, listening to an interview when, in response to a question about starting a new venture, the man said “I figured, if it wasn’t going to kill me or cause permanent bodily harm, what was there to lose really? So, we gave it a shot.”

That was a life-changing moment for me. If it wasn’t going to kill me or cause permanent bodily damage, why not give it a shot? In that moment, I understood that Fear is just a concept - a relative state of mind that we assign to certain circumstances in our lives. Once I heard this man put fear into a perspective of consequences, I was able to decide to stop letting fear keep me from doing the things I wanted to do.
