The Greatest Showman Original Art
The absence of fear is not bravery.
The absence of fear is a terrible life.
If you stay exactly where you are, and never try anything new, you may be able to avoid fear. Maybe. If you want your life to matter, however, fear comes with the territory. You’re going to have to figure out how to tame it.
The good news is that our fear is never as ferocious as we make it out to be.
Most adults don’t consider themselves to have a robust imagination; that’s the realm of children and fairy tales. However, there is one aspect where most adults actually have an over-active imagination, and that’s when it comes to our fears. It doesn’t require any effort at all to picture our portfolio going belly up, our project crashing and burning, or ending up penniless, homeless, and living in a van down by the river.
We easily dismiss any vision of an ideal (but as of yet unrealized) future, but give total credence to even the most far-fetched worst case scenario. Time for a little reality check.
Most of the things we worry about never happen.
Sometimes the tiger we’re fighting is nothing more than a house cat.
