- Fear creates indecision and thwarts action.
- Fear causes anxiety and kills brain cells.
- Fear constrains freedom and the will to fight or run away.
The only way to face fear is to either accept it or face it again and again so that you become bored of it. Repetition weakens anxiety.
But eradicating fear is impossible and thereby never a goal. Audacity remains the only constant for taking control.
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear – not absence of fear. – Mark Twain
