Day 7: What is one of the most important things you have learned in life?
One of the most important things I’ve learned is that fear plays a huge role in our daily lives. It’s everywhere – at home and in the workplace; in our politics and even in our churches where we are constantly warned of the fiery hell that awaits us for disobeying God and incurring his wrath. We encounter it in our dealings with financial institutions who have the power of foreclosure over our very lives; it’s in the books we read, the movies we watch, the news we listen to every day, there seems to be no end to it. Some of us learn how to use it to our advantage. Others surrender to it and convince themselves there is no hope and no way out of the darkness.
But what I have discovered is that fear can be controlled. It comes and goes, grows and diminishes depending on how you feel and how you live your life. It is important not to try and run away from it or pretend that it isn’t there. You have to confront it. Examine it closely and try and determine the root cause of it. Often you will find that it is your own insecurities that are feeding your fear and causing it to grow. Fear only has the power that you give it.
