I realized that there are deep-set fears that prevent people from taking action. That is the real consequence of fear--inaction.
Bold is mine.

"Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy."

    Fear of success is more common than people realise and is so hard to talk about. How do people break through that barrier?

      Never realize that there is such a thing as "fear of success." From my end, I would rather welcome it. Fear of failure is the more predominant fear, i guess.

    Fear is something everyone faces. How you handle it will determine your character. If you have gone through hell, keep going and come out the other side as a stronger person.
    If you have worked hard and made money online, you have faced your fears and done the work anyway so that is a powerful thought to hold onto.

  • That Maneesh is a very open and encouraging chap. I liked how he addressed a very common and complicated topic: Fear and it's consequence -- - - inaction.

    More and more I'm realizing that if it is in the psychological realm then fear is an indicator of what I should and need to do - fear is showing me where my growing edge is and where I need to go. It is like back in high school - I associated so much fear toward asking out the girl I really wanted to ask out, but that was where my heart was telling me to go.
    So in other words, if you are afraid, pay attention and push through it: not doing something because you "are afraid" is exactly the wrong approach. Push through, push on through the fear to the other side.

    We all have fears. No man is ever without it. What separates the success and the failures is not the absence of fear but of controlling it.

    Something I learned from the book Unconditional Bliss by Raphael Cushnir is to not resist the fears as they come up. When you sit with the fear and feel where it is in your body, you also give it room to pass through like weather. This is the opposite of the way we want to push it down or away, but it actually helps the fear dissolve by feeling the feeling.
