Fear is not real. It's a product of the thoughts you create.

Will Smith does it again (or maybe the guy who wrote this screenplay does it again :-). Nice quote, and I thought I'd pass it along to you guys from a new movie trailer I saw today:

"Fear is not real. It's a product of thoughts you create. Now do not understand me, danger is very real. But fear is a choice."



And here's a classic Will Smith interview. I'm sure it's been posted here before but worth listening to again:

    It's also sometimes the most appropriate choice, and serves a good purpose.

      Hey Dennis,

      You know that's something I've often wondered about too. Initially I thought fear was a good thing and that it kept us alive.

      After all, fear of getting my hand burned is what prevents me from touching a hot stove.

      But I would say that is more "caution" than fear.

      Fear can certainly increase our adrenaline. Fear could also certainly help you save your rear in a fight or flight situation with that rush of adrenaline.

      But in general, I think we are all too consumed with fear. Fear of success, fear of being shamed, fear of what others think of us.

    We definitely have the ability to control and direct our fear, or allow it to control and direct us.

    When we take responsibility for control, things turn out way better!

    I completely agree with that. If there would be anything like fear then all of us should be afraid of a particular thing. But we see that our subject of fear is different from one another. So I will say that it's a mindset of human being.

    FEAR = False Evidence Appearing Real

    I agree, fear isn't real and is just a product of thoughts. But, it can be realistic when you're erroneous with what you're doing.

    Yes, fear is useful this way we can determine whether to push through or not.

    I agree with everybody as well.
    When you learn to let go. Realize that there is nothing to lose. That there is no point to your life except to live it to the best of your ability. That the opinions of others do not matter. That others cannot dictate your life, you alone allow them to. That whatever happens, will happen. That there is always a way to get out of a situation.
    Fear dissolves.
