Insights on facing your fears. I recently read a story titled “Dope on a Rope”. It’s about a criminal who was caught and sent to the king of the land to be punished. On arrival, he was asked to pick a punishment. He was given two options, either to be hung by a rope or to go behind a big dark scary door. The criminal chose the rope, because he could see it and knew what he was in for.
Before they took him away to be hanged, he summoned the courage and asked the king what was behind the big scary dark door. The king looked at him and said Freedom!
We are all so afraid of the unknown, we would rather choose to remain where we are and not take a leap of faith into the unknown.

Turn your dream into reality by stepping into the unknown.

Each of us must confront our own fears, we must come face to face with them. How we handle our fears will determine where we go with the rest of our lives. To experience adventure or to be limited by the fear of it.
He who is not every day conquering some fear has not learned the secret of life.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.
The key to change… is to let go of fear.
Fear keeps us focused on the past or worried about the future. If we can acknowledge our fear, we can realize that right now we are okay. Right now, today, we are still alive, and our bodies are working marvellously. Our eyes can still see the beautiful sky. Our ears can still hear the voices of our loved ones.
-Thich Nhat Hanh
Thinking will not overcome fear, but action will.
-W. Clement Stone
Don’t let fear or insecurity stop you from trying new things. Believe in yourself. Do what you love. And most importantly, be kind to others, even if you don’t like them.
Overcoming what frightens you the most strengthens you the most.
If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you. —-Saint Thomas
