I know someone that won’t leave their house when it’s dark and their spouse isn’t in town. Another person won’t visit their family across the country because flying scares them so much. Yet, another hides all of their money IN CASH around their business and home because they’re afraid it’s not safe in a bank.
I hope you’re asking yourself now:
- How many things has that person missed by not going out after dark?
- How much time and valuable experiences with their family has that person lost out on?
- How much of that money has been stolen? What if there’s a fire? What if they forget where some of it is hidden?
I can’t help but wonder what the real value of those fears are. How does entertaining those fears make any of those people’s lives better?
Fear is a tough thing. It makes your heart race, makes your feel vulnerable and uncertain, and worse, but most of your fears are irrational, and they hold you back from experiencing, achieving, and reaching everything that you really could with your life.
