According to psychologists, we are born with only two fears – the fear of falling and the fear of loud noises.
Let’s focus on one of those – the fear of falling.
Here’s an idea. Try using your fear of falling as a positive.
Alex Rodriguez said, “Fear of failure is what fuels me, keeps me on edge and sharp. I’m not as good when I’m comfortable.”
Don’t let fear rule your life, but don’t miss its lessons, either.
The old prophet nailed it: “You know that if a man falls down, he gets up again” (Jeremiah 8:4).
Recovery Step: Don’t live your life in fear.
