The question you need to ask:
What am I not doing right now because of fear?
“We suffer more in imagination than in reality.” — Seneca
Fear plays dangerous games with our minds. It distorts our ability to think clearly and rationally about a decision.
When we feel fear, we:
Overstate the negative consequences of our decisions or actions.
Completely ignore the potential positive consequences and the costs of inaction.
The human tendency is to (1) feel fear and (2) run away from it.
Deconstruct the fear that is holding you back:
What is the potential downside of action (or inaction)?
What is the potential upside of action?
As Tim Ferriss so aptly covers with his fear-setting framework, by getting closer to our fears, we are able to fight back against them and unlock new growth in our lives.
