In order to succeed you have to take risks, risks that you may be scared to take. Fear is only going to hinder your efforts toward your goal. It has never steered anyone toward success, just away from it. Fear has no room in your success. Risks are good, fear is not. Risks push you to make those BIG decisions. Being frightened by risk is like being frightened by growth; you have to jump at some point. Never fear loss, loss is how you learn to grown. You should fear defeat- not being defeated by the task but being defeated by your won inability to overcome your fears. Forget about falling and focus on flying.
