Today’s Word: fear

☆  fear 恐れ


Have you heard of or read the book, Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway by Susan Jeffers? It was first published in 1987, 31 years ago and it is still a best seller! It’s interesting that this book is still so popular. I wonder why people have a lot of fear about doing certain things. 

Susan Jeffers says that our fear is mostly from conditioning, for example, our parents always say, “Be careful!” rather than, “Take risks!” Ha ha, that’s true for me, I’m always saying be careful to my kids… I don’t know what would happen if I stopped saying this! I think they might break their bones!! But probably not, that is really just my fear, not reality! So, from today, I’m going to try and not say “be careful” too often!

How about you, do you have any fears you don’t want to have? For example, do you have a fear of speaking English? Is there something you could start doing today that would decrease that fear?
