How to Fight the Fear

"In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure."

-Bill Cosby

I think this is a great quote for a Friday. Fear can be a driving 
force for good or bad but far too often we let it persuade us not to try something or to quit.  This quote is powerful. It can be 
used to help fight a lengthy health issue. Or to continuously and properly care for a child with a terminal or chronic disease. 
It can help you finish that college degree you want but are too 
scared to attempt it. Or maybe you want to raise money for a charity but 
you are scared people will tell you no when you ask for their 
donation. Fear vs Success. How much do YOU want something? How much does your "it" mean to you? 

Figure out your it. And then realize there will be problems placed in your way that may make you want to quit. But then remember this quote and push through.  For more motivation, take a peek at a blog I wrote a couple months ago about courage. Click here

Thank you for this post and for your example to all of us that even though life hands us curve-balls, there is no reason to give up. :)
