Fear, the very word reminds one of the many phobias that exist, the challenges that the world poses to anyone and the numerous unsolicited reminders that most people consistently provide stating what can be done, what should be done, what shouldn’t be done and what cannot be done. Fear exists everywhere, in everyone. No one can truly get rid of fear, not even the most courageous. One can only overcome one fear to gear up for another challenge. The truth is that fear is as genuine an emotion as love, it is as real as vision and it is as omnipresent as our very existence.
Professional athletes, adventurists, employees at a private firm, teachers and students at school, parents, celebrities, politicians, scientists, all have something to fear. While it is perfectly natural to be afraid and to be bogged down by the idea of fear itself, yet it is necessary that you gear up to face your fear and overcome it. For beyond the threshold of your fear, lays victory. Beyond the fences that you dare not cross lay achievements that you have always thought were difficult to accomplish. Anyone who conquers fear would succeed regardless of what one does.

Overcoming fear is an attempt to achieve something you haven’t achieved, which may pertain to your business, finance, personal life or anything that you can think of.
A life lived in fear or anything that you wouldn’t do because of fear is simply a waste of a perfectly good opportunity which could have taken you anywhere better but you simply didn’t give it a try.
