Fears are acquired

We are born with two innate fears, fear of loud noises and fear of falling (or being dropped), all others have been acquired over the course of our lives. Furthermore, most of them have been “manufactured” by our minds based on the variety of (in)valid inputs from our surroundings.

If there’s an idea that seems risky, but you can’t stop thinking about for months or even years in some cases, it may be time to seriously evaluate your options and take a step towards this new path. All great accomplishments have been accomplished by those who took risks, challenged status quo and have opted to try new things. Additionally, at the time, most (if not all) of them were ridiculed and discouraged, only to be seen as visionaries and leaders decades later.

Today is your time, ask yourself, what are you afraid of and will you allow it to dictate your potential and future growth?
