The Two Major Fears

IMG_2042

 

The two major fears that stand as the greatest obstacles on your road to success are the fear of failure, or loss, and the fear of criticism, or rejection. These are the major enemies to be overcome.

It is not the actual failure or rejection that hurts you or holds you back. It is the fear of failure or rejection that stops you from acting.

The average person moves away from and avoids the fear-causing situation. A brave person forces himself to confront the fear and do what is feared anyway.

Glenn Ford, the actor, once said, “If you do not do the thing you fear, then the fear controls your life.”

Instead of waiting until you feel courageous enough, do the thing you fear, and the courage will come afterward.
