People Choose Courage Over Fear
Courage over Fear ~ You Choose
In uncertain times it's difficult to choose courage when feeling fearful. Pulling the blankets up over our heads can seem like the best option. Fear has the power to build barriers and stop us in our tracks. To paraphrase motivational speaker Danny Cox, fear is a stone mason with non-existent stones. These stones exit in our minds, creating self-imposed barriers.
Fear Will Squash Adventure
Fear is the sworn enemy of adventure. Fear does exactly what we tell fear to do. When we move fear from the back of our minds to the front, our concentration shifts away from courage. These self-imposed barriers caused by fear keep us standing still.
Fear Grows When We Focus on It
By focusing on fear, we strengthen it. It has no strength on its own. The more we focus on fear, the stronger fear gets.
Courage Defeats Fear
By focusing on courage rather than fear, people keep moving forward. It's our mental focsus that allows fear to defeat us. The strength we give fear is the strength we need to overcome it! When we choose to focus on our goals and dreams, apply courage, barriers break. Courage will triumph over fear. Source: Danny Cox
