Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.

Let go of fear

Fear can be comforting because it is so familiar. And yet, it is a false comfort that serves only to bring you down.

Fear gives you permission to withdraw from life, to hide from life, and to avoid any kind of effort or action. But deep down, you know that’s not what you truly want.

Instead of seeking the comfort of the same old fears, choose to allow yourself the joy of living. Instead of hiding away from life, remind yourself of the beautiful, unique, miraculous nature of your existence.

Regardless of what you’ve convinced yourself to believe, you do not have to live in fear. The choice to live from a perspective of love is instantly available to you at any time, in any situation.

The power of your fear is nothing more than the power you have given it. You can choose, right now, and always, to let it go.

Let the fear go, and live your life with the power of love. In love is the power to change your whole world.
