Daily Motivator - The Value of FearPosted on 08/01/08, 09:25 am
Fear can be valuable when you decide to put it to use. The purpose of fear is not to stop you, but to prepare you. Fear is strong and compelling, and it can certainly be transformed into an excuse for not taking action. Yet that same strength can also be directed in a more positive way, in a way that will, rather than stopping you, make your actions more effective.
Fear heightens your awareness of any situation. That can give you a tremendous advantage. Fear points out what can go wrong, so you can be ready for the obstacles which arise. Fear gives you energy and excitement which can be channeled into enthusiasm.
Fear will focus you like nothing else can. And with enough focus, there are no limits to what you can accomplish. Feel the fear. Don't hide from it. Appreciate fear for what it is. Use it to move you powerfully forward.
