Scapegoat Named Fear

Fear is the new scapegoat that we use as our excuse for not accepting our obligation of being the best that we can be.

Fear of failure. Fear of success. Fear of falling. Fear of flying. Fear of death. Fear of fear. Fear of complacency. Fear of knowledge. Fear of the unknown. Fear of commitment. Fear of disappointment.

Why do we allow fear to play such a pivotal role in who we are, but of greater concern, who we are becoming?

I fear that too many of us, myself included, are missing out on the great things we have been designed for as a result of giving fear more credit than it deserves.
