Fear holds us and binds us and keeps us from growing. It kills a small piece of us each day. It holds us to what we know and keeps us from what’s possible, and it is our worst enemy. Fear doesn’t announce itself; it’s disguised, and it’s subtle. It’s choosing the safe course; most of us feel we have ‘rational’ reasons to avoid risks.
The brave person is not the one without fear but the one who does what he must despite being afraid. To succeed, you must be willing to risk total failure.
~Pug of Stardock
