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.

    I’ve been suffering for anxiety for this past 3years, when I read this , the words feel so relatable, and help me from myself for what ever that means..

    The best way to end the fear is to face it 🌟

    True words ron, so fitting that they can even be called a rule of life. Everyone has heard of the leap of faith, that sometimes when you are tethering on the edge all u need to take is a leap of faith. Your words just beautifully express that single phrase. Suddenly it’s not so hard anymore or complex as to think furiously and take an impulsive blind action forward, No it’s broken down into a simple step-by-step process that becomes easier the further you go.

    fear is like standing on a cliff before you jump into the water.

    jumping even though you are scared is making the leap.

    once you‘ve jumped and conquer your fear the way down is the easiest thing and as soon as you are in the water you are energized.

    ready to jump again.

    don‘t let the fear stop you from the journey.
    you got this!
