You are on your way to accomplishing a massive goal. Things are in motion. Everyone is looking at you; suddenly you get stuck. You can’t move on. Fear just invaded your mind. So, you downplay your goal. You take a secure path where success is guaranteed.
Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me. — Psalm 23: 4
I find this passage of the Bible remarkable. It shows us the magnificent power we have over fear. Yet, to overcome fears we need to understand them, challenge them and develop the right mindset.
