What You Don't Understand
Updated: Mar 27
We only really fear what we don’t understand.
So conquering fear is all about deepening your understanding.
If you fear fighting,
Then you must learn the art of combat
If you fear failure
Then you must learn how to fail and fail well.
If you fear being alone,
Then you must learn the art of solitude.
If you fear others,
Get to know them.
And if you fear death
Then you must go into death and learn how to die.
Fear is not about avoidance
And it’s not about being fearless.
It’s about overcoming and conquering
And It’s about courage.
It's about keeping an open mind and having the will to really understand.
It’s about exposing yourself to the things you fear most
Experiencing and going into it,
Because it is the cave you fear to enter,
That holds the treasure you seek.
