“Willingness to confront fear is called courage. You will find it very hard to overcome your fears unless you are willing to muster up some valor, even though you will find that you already possess it if you are willing to realize it.
Courage means flying in the face of criticism, relying on yourself, being willing to accept and learn from the consequences of all your choices. It means believing enough in yourself and in living your life as you choose, so that you cut the strings whose ends other people hold and use to pull you in many directions.
You can make your mental leaps toward courage by repeatedly asking yourself, “What is the worst thing that could happen to me if…?” When you consider the possibilities realistically, you will almost always find that nothing damaging or painful “can” happen when you take the necessary steps away from being a knee-jerk victim. Usually you will find that, like a child afraid of the dark, you are afraid of nothing, because nothing is the worst thing that could happen to you.”
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, in “Pulling Your Own Strings”
