**“Real fears can be overcome. It’s the imaginary ones that are unconquerable.” - Theodore Vale**
Fear can be absolutely paralyzing. And it’s wise of us to recognize that it’s “fear” that’s paralyzing… not an actual event taking place. Said another way, our mental reaction to an external event can paralyze us.
FEAR = False Evidence Appearing Real.
If there ever was a superpower that we have, it’s the tremendous ability to bring whatever we’re thinking into reality. And if you’re human, you can draw back to a time where we brought a fear - a mental reaction to an external event - into reality. We talked ourselves into failure... before we even began. We convinced ourselves it couldn’t be done, and deemed it impossible, before even trying.
The unconquerable fear, as Theodore Vale puts it, is the imaginary one. It’s human to question, doubt, and fear. But this thousand-year-old survival mechanism, which means well, is leading us down the path of hesitancy. Of inaction.
The same mind that builds a paralyzing fear can break one down.
It comes down to where we focus our thoughts.
Instead of dwelling on what could go wrong, dwell on why it will go right.
