“Every single decision we make will be life or death. But if we are going to survive this, you must realize that fear is not real. It is a product of thoughts you create. Do not misunderstand me, danger is very real, but fear is a choice.”
Talk about intense and demanding.
Nevertheless, the lesson I took away from this quote was to lead courageously – face your fears and have the strength to do what frightens you.
Talk about scary, right?
As you travel down your own path to happiness, success and wealth, there will be plenty of distractions. There will be plenty of real threats. Some will be dangerous, while others will be a product of your fearful thoughts.
What you must focus on in these situations is the strength you have to use your courage to do what frightens you.
Think back to a time in your life when you were genuinely in danger. A time when you could feel the emotional cocktail of fear surging throughout your body? A time when you felt fear but choose to face it courageously.
A better question to ask is what did that courage help you do?
Did it let the danger manifest into fear, and leave you paralyzed in inaction? Or did you accept the threat, acknowledge the danger, and look your fears dead in the face and say, “Fuck it. I’m doing it anyways.”
While you can’t control what happens to you, you can control your reactions and responses to the real dangerous situations you face.
The next time you encounter a situation that triggers a fearful sensation, remember that the danger your body is telling you is imminent may or may not be real. If it is, by all means, act appropriately. If not, don’t let the fear stop you from moving forward because the threat is not real. It’s a product of your thoughts.
The decisions you make today will shape what will become of you tomorrow. And while we all face different dangers, we all feel the same fear. The only difference between those who overcome it and those who don’t comes down to a simple choice: To hesitate in fear, or to act in courage.
Your choice will determine how far you get down the road to happiness, success and wealth, so choose wisely and fear nothing.th
