Why do we let fear dictate our decisions? You could be anything you want to be if you just didn’t listen to fear. Back then, we needed to know which berries were posinous or if there was a lion ready to pounce on us. But now, it’s different. We have social anxiety and fear of failure and all of these ungrounded things. Why do we let those control us? Recognize the fear. Look at it for what it is, but do not act on it.
