Do The Thing You Fear Most... and the death of fear is certain ~ Mark Twain
Fear... I am the menace that lurks in the paths of life, never visible to the eye but sharply felt in the heart. I am the father of despair, the brother of procrastination, the enemy of progress, the tool of tyranny. Born of ignorance and nursed on misguided thought, I have darkened more hopes, stifled more ambitions, shattered more ideals and prevented more accomplishments than history could record.
Like the chameleon, I assume many disguises. I masquerade as caution. I am sometimes known as doubt or worry. Whatever I am called, I am still fear, the obstacle of achievement. I seek to destroy inspiration, passion, innovation and creativity. I will stop at nothing to squelch your dreams.
I know no master but one; its name is Understanding. I have no power but what the human mind gives me, and I vanish completely when the light of Understanding reveals the facts as they really are. I am Fear... and without you, I am powerless.
