I've heard it said that we're born with only a few fears, like the fear of falling and the fear of loud noises. All other fears we learn along the way. Like the fear of failure, the fear of rejection, even the fear of success. I believe that our greatest enemy in life is fear, because fear keeps us from doing many of those things we would like to do to make our life more complete and more enjoyable.

Doubt is the first cousin of fear and precedes it. We weren't born with doubt. Our habit of doubt has grown throughout our life. If we dwell on a doubt and give into it, it then grows into fear. If most of our fears and all of our doubts are learned along the way, then we can "unlearn" them by becoming masters of our thoughts.

I heard Zig Ziglar quote Mark Twain when he said, "True courage is not the absence of fear, it's the mastery of fear." The people who live the life of their dreams have just as many fears as those who live miserable, unfulfilled lives. They have just learned to master their fears instead of allowing their fears to master them.

Those who succeed in conquering fear have put their focus on what's more important to them rather than on the fear. If your young child darted in front of traffic, you'd easily overcome the fear of any physical danger that getting that child would pose. Master your fears and you will be living your very best life.
