If you want to live a life of fear, it’s pretty straightforward:
- Read the news
- Believe the worst about people
- Ignore any evidence to the contrary
- Read the fine print (every last word of it dangit!)
- Spend more time worrying about potential problems than solving them.
It’s a simple life, but the tradeoff is you spend it all worrying about things you can’t control, instead of focusing on things you can.
Sure there are dangers in life and things you should be scared of, but if you spend your whole time worrying about them, you’ll be paralyzed from fear and never do anything.
And that’s what some people do…
But, there’s another way that people live.
These people aren’t fearless, but they learn to accept the fact that even though they’re scared out of their mind, they’re still going to do something. These people are the ones that end up doing something worthwhile. They’re the ones that end up doing something impossible.
