More Important Than Fear

“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear” – James Neil Hollingworth

I think that “something else is more important” is a tool that I use in my life. It is what has been getting my body out of bed one hour earlier to excercise. Not because I “really” want to, but because if I can’t do this simple thing, then how will I be able to accomplish everything that I want?

I think that this is where the “your why should make you cry” comes into place. It is where all of the obstacles sort of fade away because you are so focused that you don’t see them; fear doesn’t even have a chance to enter into your framework. You are totally in the zone.

I don’t stay in this place 24/7. It is so intense I think that I would burn out. But I do visit it often.
