I know exactly who and what you are. You’re the secret killer. You’re the little voice in my head that tries to make me quit too soon, be afraid to take a chance, or stay the course to achieve my dreams.
I know exactly what you’re trying to do, and it won’t work…
I know that if I listen to you, then you win. And when you win, you come back again and gain. So I’m putting an end to this right now. I will stare you down, accept you and even embrace you, because I’m moving forward anyway.
Because I recognize that there is really no such thing as a fearless leader. We all have fear. But we choose to move forward in spite of our fear, or sometimes because of our fear.
So thank you for that. I’m no longer afraid of you, fear. In fact, I’d be worried if I didn’t have any fear. Because that would mean I settled for mediocrity, and I will never settle for mediocrity. I will win, and you will fear me.
