As I see it, Fear has gotten a bad rep. Maybe it’s leftover from our Neanderthal heritage, when hungry predators were a constant peril.
But times have changed. And so has fear’s function. Problem is, we feel the fear, and instantly take flight. We don’t realize that, in modern times, fear is rarely a sign that our survival is being threatened.
Nowadays, fear has a new purpose—to warn us of approaching Greatness. And as I’m discovering, we’re as afraid of our Greatness as our ancestors were of carnivorous beasts…maybe more.
So, I’m on a crusade to change that. Let it be known…Fear is the clearest signal we will get that we’re on the precipice of greater success, greater prosperity, greater happiness, greater impact.
Imagine if every time we got scared, instead of freaking out, we gave each other a big high-five and exclaimed: “YES! Greatness, here we come!”
