One of the greatest dangers most of us face is the tendency to procrastinate when well-considered proactive behavior would be far more beneficial! When we proceed with the foresight to face the facts, rather than succumb to our fears, our positive possibilities become endless and overcome the natural tendencies which create further challenges!

2. Relevant; realistic; rationale

Responding to fears in a relevant, realistic manner and maintaining a positive rationale, and a can – do, attitude is the best strategy to move forward effectively rather than becoming one’s own worst enemy!

Expand your imagination and consider various, viable options and alternatives, to provide quality possibilities and ideas! Will you proceed in a personally inspiring way or a potentially damaging one?

5. Head/ heart; healing

Overcoming your fears takes many factors and actions and must use the finest aspects of both your emotional and logical components in a head / heart balance!

6. Tell truth; time – tested, timely

Be honest with yourself, because unless / until you tell yourself the truth, you can’t become the best. And you can! Constantly seek to improve and learn relevant skills.

You can let your fears, and FRIGHT, control you or you can learn to, and commit to, overcoming these in your own best interests! Do you really want to become the best you can?
