The single largest factor which keeps you from doing the things you are destined to do is… fear.
Plain old fear.
It’s crippling. It’s terrifying. It doesn’t let go.
And it’s stupid.
The higher the stakes — the more crippling, the more terrifying your fear becomes.
And you know better.
On the field of the self stand a knight and a dragon. You are the knight. Fear is the dragon.
I have to slay the dragon every single day. Sometimes it’s easier, sometimes it’s harder. But I make sure that I never ever not kill the beast by the end of the day. As this is the only way you can do what you’re meant to do.
