3 thought-provoking quotes about fear to help you achieve your goalsPosted on 15/08/2018 by Jess O'Connor
Everyone has big, ambitious, exciting goals. But what’s one thing that holds many people back from achieving their dreams? Fear.
Fear that they will fail. Fear that it won’t work out. Fear that they aren’t good enough, smart enough, motivated enough. Fear is no fun! Too often it gets in the way of people pursuing their goals.
But what if we’re just thinking about fear in the wrong way? What if we could use it as fuel to help propel us towards our dreams, instead of away from them?
Here are three thought-provoking quotes about fear to help you gain a new perspective and achieve your study goals.
“When we deny our fear, we make it stronger.” – Seth Godin
Seth Godin believes we should use fear as a compass, not a barrier. That we should fully acknowledge our fears, move towards them, understand them — and move forward anyway.
He says that fearless people don’t live a life without fear. Instead, they accept that fear is part of the package, and make smart and brave decisions. He believes that by acknowledging fear, one “permits it to exist without strengthening it”.
“Our deepest fear is not that we’re inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we’re powerful beyond measure.” – Marianne Williamson
Marianne Williamson takes the unique perspective that we’re actually afraid of letting our light shine bright. We’re afraid to be brilliant, talented and fabulous — and this fear subconsciously holds us back from stepping into our full potential.
She believes “your playing small does not serve the world”. She encourages everyone to step into their light, and that “as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same”.
“Without fear there cannot be courage.” – Christopher Paolini
We live in a society that praises bravery and courage — but these characteristics cannot exist without fear. Fear is an opportunity to be brave and courageous. You might not always succeed, but you will almost always learn valuable lessons along the way.
So, use fear as fuel to embrace courage and pursue your dreams. Working towards your goals will always feel a little scary — but that’s normal, healthy, and what makes life interesting.
