How would your life be different if you were incapable of feeling fear? Would your life be better or worse than it is now?
I think it would have been great for to have not felt fear in certain points in my life. Taken the bold decisions at points in my life where I should have. They would have fared me better and I think my life would have been much better of if I had taken those decisions boldly and bravely because it would have been worth it. Plus I could have afforded to do so at that point in time.
I think we should look at things as they are, make our choice based on the facts and on a cool head and then decide what to do. If you feel that you can afford to take the leap, do it. It will be so much more worth it and you have bragging rights in the end. But I think fear is important as it keeps you from making a rash choice and making things that much more difficult for us. I think a level head is needed at most times but there are so many times in the past where I wished I could do the impulsive thing because thats what I really wanted to do so badly. But fear kept me back and I thought I should be wiser.
Battling fear is a tricky one. If you have less to lose, fear tends to go on the backburner. I wish I could be that lucky. Everything I do I keep thinking, I need to be sure that it’s the right choice. I do not want to regret things a few days down the line. Not having to feel that is a great thing indeed.
