Have No Fear
Can’t really live by or measure what could have been; I can only live by and measure by what is. Fear itself serves a purpose and the purpose is something that one least expect it to be. Without fear there would be no challenges to overcome and no progress made. Indeed if I did not experience fear I certainly would be in Prison serving a life sentence because I would have acted on impulse of murdering the malicious people who have crossed me at various points in my life. No need to elaborate because some of those experiences will make a good tale for a future blog post. But murder would not be the only crime I would have engaged in if I didn’t have any fear. Then again I could have ended up being six feet under carrying out those activities, ahh, but that is a something that can be put into words so stay tuned to this blog you may hear about that too.
Like FDR said, “there is nothing to fear but fear itself.” So fear is really immaterial if there is a goal that I truly want to accomplish, but don’t worry I’m not a reckless person who will go around doing things at the expense of others, I like to have it so that it is a win, win situation. But if my life depended on it the rule book is out the window.
The fear would be the challenge to open the door and working to meet the desired outcome. The bigger the fear, the sweeter the satisfaction when the goal is met. Believing in what you do will always trash your fears (https://truegeorge.com/2015/12/22/its-possible-if-you-believe/)
How would your life be different if you were incapable of feeling fear? Would your life be better or worse than it is now?
Well stated. This is the real meaning in Robert Frost’s poem “The Road Not Taken:” Frost was not promoting non-conformism. He was urging us to find the courage to depart from the path of habit and familiarity and embrace the unknown. Meeting challenges rather than avoiding them is what, in the end, “makes all the difference.”
