The Fear Factor

By 10:18 AM

I once read that we are guided by our fears. In other words, every decision we make is a consequence of something we fear, whether it be the fear of never escaping home that has lead someone to travel the world, or that same fear that keeps someone else in the same place because they unjustifiably believe they can't escape.

I don't know what it is about fear that can have so much power over a person. Its those that are truly brave who can somehow overcome stagnant fears and reverse their destiny.

But how does one become brave?

Perhaps those of us who lack the "brave" drive are just lazy.

But no really, why should there be some of us that succeed and some of us who can't because we are blocked by fear?

We are all created equally, so we can all achieve equal potential, right?

Letting go of the fear can be hard. But from personal experience I know that it is possible. All we have to do is simply take a deep breath and jump.

If the worst that can happen is a rejection, there will always be new opportunities. Rejections are just one step closer to an acceptance.

Honestly, all it takes is a deep breathe and a jump. So like Nike says, Just Do it.
