Author James Baldwin said “Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.”
Most of us know this is true, yet we avoid what is happening in our lives. Why is that?
Fear. Fear of failure, of success, rejection, loss, change. Plain old fear.
F – E – A – R stands for False Evidence Appearing Real. That’s what most fear is.
We make huge sweeping assumptions and judgments predominantly biased by the negative noise in our heads from past experiences.
Action – Imagine a current pressing situation. What would you do about it if you had no fear?
Think about that for a second.
Successful people aren’t fearless – they simply know it is false evidence appearing real and move forward in spite of it.
