FEAR, What do you do?

Fear is something we have all experienced at different times in our lives and at various levels. Fear can consume our thoughts and cause constant worry. It will steal our time and turn our focus to problems leaving no time for solutions.

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”-Nelson Mandela

Facing fears provide opportunities. It is when we find our courage, we can find ourselves making life-changing decisions. Do you have fear? Many people have fears of making a speech in front of others. Some people have a fear of heights.

Do your fears hold you back? Do you run and hide or face and rise? How do you overcome fear?

We have, according to the nightly and daytime media outlets, lots of narratives of fear. As leaders, we have to think about the impact of these things on our children. We have to help our children learn to face fears as well.

How do you face fears? What are strategies we can share to help others? Please share your thoughts in the comments. Thank you for being part of the solution daily.
