The benefit of fear

Fear can be a very positive thing.

For example, fear of boiling water can save you a lot of pain and scars.

Fear of strangers could save your life.

And fear of a debilitating sickness that sidelines you and keeps you from being a player in life can be a good motivation for making wise lifestyle choices.

Don’t confuse irrational fears and above-your-pay-grade-fears with good honest fears that are warning markers on the road of life.

Bottom line, keep a running tally of your fears. Cull the irrational fears that are not realistic or that you can do nothing about and treasure your wise fears and let them motivate you to do something good with your life.

The ONE THING for today: Make the question, “What am I afraid of?” a regular part of your reflection time.
