The most valuable commodity in our world is fear.
People become workaholics because they of their fear that they may become poor, or their fear that they may become insignificant if the work goes away. Women fight each other over a man because of their fear that he can be taken from them. Insurance companies don’t sell policies; no one sells products or services. They sell the fear of having to live without their policies or their products or their services. They figure out what we fear the most – aging, loneliness, being pimple-faced, inadequacy, social ostracism, erectile disfunction, failure – and they exploit that. And it works because fear is a primal emotion.
But if we have just a little bit of faith, then we can muster the courage to face our fears head on, and that releases us to do epic things. S,o Hello Fear! We are going to be seeing a lot of each other.
