Thought for the Day - Fear
Many times I have been wracked with fear. Afraid to say the wrong thing. Afraid to fail. Afraid to move. We all wrestle with insecurities and uncertainties...many people end up making decisions that are a direct result of their fear but making decisions based on fear can have disastrous results...
On a "A Minute With Maxwell," John Maxwell made this profound statement concerning fear...
"The problem with fear, is it causes us to be inactive, it causes us not to go forward...I do have fears in my life, but I also have belief and faith. And I have found that if I nurture my faith and belief and make it a more positive emotion than the negative emotion of fear that the positive emotion will help me to take action." (You can watch the rest here...http://johnmaxwellteam.com/fear)
Believe in yourself and nurture it...Don't let fear paralyze you from making that decision whether it is a new career opportunity, a cross county move or the new business decision. Remember not taking action is still a decision, it is deciding to allow fear to win.
"Courage is not the absence of fear but the mastery of it." Mark Twain
