Fear is a really interesting concept to think about, because it is something that is strictly individualized. While on person may be fearful of heights and spiders, another person may love flying on a plane and may have a pet tarantula. When evaluating your life, what do you think you are most afraid of? Do you think any of these fears prohibit you from accomplishing any of the things you wish to set out to do in your life?
I’ll go first.
The things that I am most afraid of are:
-Sea creatures, not like dolphins or sharks, but small creatures like shrimp and lobsters and crabs and smaller things like that.
-Getting in a “funk” so deep one day that I won’t be able to get out of it
-Weird holes/ things with holes
-Loosing my parents
I would say that my fear of holes and small sea creatures doesn’t prohibit me from becoming a successful person. I don’t think the fear of loosing my parents does either, because as much as I would hate to admit it, the cycle of life indicates that I will lose them one day 🙁 I feel like perhaps getting in a funk one day where I get stuck would definitely hinder my path to success, but the only way to deter that would be to push myself through it just as I do when I have gotten in funks before and have made it out on the other side.
What about you?
