overcome fear

Fear and Courage

Fear. It is the absence of courage. We do all have fear at least one or two. I do not believe that there is someone who exists in this world who fear nothing or fear no one. Well at least this is my set of belief and we are all entitled to each his own.

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”

Nelson Mandela

These are the wise words coming from a very famous person who had put a mark in history not only in his country but also throughout the world. ┬áHe acknowledged the presence of fear in one’s mind and heart but he also pointed out hat this can be overcome.

When we allow fear to conquer us there is no way we can progress in our life. This will become a hindrance to move on any further in life.

There is so much in life that scares us a lot. We worry too much that we become afraid of taking chances. Our fear is really greater that it stops us from doing what we supposed to do. And then we just try to make some excuses so we cannot face the reality that we are just afraid to try.

Trying our best in overcoming our fear is one step enough for showing courage. Even just wanting to continue living each day ready to face a brand new start is the end of our fears. Life never promises us perfect bliss. This is something that we should work hard for.

But fear also has its advantage. This may be so when we fear to commit sin. This allows us not to be sinful and stay in the path of goodness because we treat our felllow men with kindness because we are scared that if we do not, we will meet our own karma
