fear is a funny thing.

fear is a funny thing.

fear is usually the #1 thing when it comes to us being hesitant to make a decision.

but when you really think about it, fear is usually the highest at the beginning.

the biggest fear you have is right before you leap. 

the moment you make the leap, your fear becomes exponentially lesser.

step 0 is usually when you have the most fear.

compare step 1 to step 0, you realise that your fear is tremendously lesser.

compare step 2 to step 0, the amount of fear you have is a fraction to what you had at the beginning.

step 3 onwards, your fear is almost non-existent.

if you think about it, it seems like making the leap is how you get rid of the fear.

but ironically, fear is also what's stopping you from making that leap.

so you get trapped in a circle.

you can't make that leap because you are fearful. but you can't get rid of that fear if you don't make that leap. 

and it just goes round and round and round.

    That’s exactly the thought that is keeping me awake at night these days. Today i decided to go beyond my comfort zone and late at night at 3:00 am I’m reading this post. Isn’t it coincidental?

    You dont exactly become fearless, you just become stronger and stronger enough to face bigger problems ahead!!
    Ron, needed this today, faced my biggest fear and I think I have done a wonderful job. Cannot thank you enough:)

    And then courage is the ability to take the leap even though you’re afraid
