Short Thought on Fear

When you’re a person that takes leaps to get where they want in life, you get asked if you’re scared a lot. What the people asking fail to realize is that being scared can’t be enough to hold you back from achieving or becoming what you want. What you want has must be more important than the fact that you’re fearful. Whether it be its purpose or personal significance, you simply have to believe that takes precedence over your anxiety and fear will cease being a hindrance. Audre Lorde summed this up brilliantly:

When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.
