Fear is toxic to creative thought.
It will rob you of courage, of your creativity, and of your passion. It will turn you into an empty and uninspiring version of yourself.
If you start thinking about something ambitious—and feel fear take hold—figure out where it’s coming from.
Peoples’ biggest regrets at death’s door are not the things they did, but the things they didn’t do.
If it comes from within, look into ways to deprogram that. If it comes from your manager or your company, start looking at options.
But never accept it.
To accept fear is to accept mediocrity.
Reject both, and be the version of yourself that you’d like to read about.
