Maybe’s are used to indicate uncertainty or possibility. It is not a winning strategy. I have to remind myself of that regularly, especially when I am fearful of doing something.
Chanakya once said, “As soon as the fear approaches, attack and destroy it.” Courage is the belief that you can get things done when you are fearful. I remember the fear I felt during all of my first at-bats in baseball—from Little League with the Cascade Youth Organization (CYO) Braves to the pros with the Cubs.
It was when I would respond with courage that I experienced success.
Courage does not remove fear. It simply tells you how to respond.
How do you respond to fear?
