There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

Through your fears

Look in the direction of your fears. You will likely see a path toward new success and achievement. Those things which you fear represent significant challenges for you, and in challenge there is much value.

The things that challenge you most will also compel you to grow the most. The places you’ve always feared to go are filled with unexplored territory. There’s no telling what treasures you could find there.

A few of your fears will genuinely keep you out of trouble. Most of them, though, are not there to stop you but to prepare you. The more you confront your fears and work through them, the more new and fertile ground you’ll uncover. There’s a whole rich and wonderful world waiting just on the other side of your fears.

Heed your fears by adequately preparing yourself. Then march right on through those fears toward the golden rewards which are beyond them.
