“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
The best example for people who overcame their fear are daredevils. Daredevils are simply the ones who DARES with the Devil aka. Death. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t afraid of anything.
It’s the miscalculation of death that they fear. Little loopholes that were not envisioned the course of the plan.
According to most daredevils, their fear is not DEATH itself but rather the THOUGHT of not doing what they could. DEATH is just a form of miscalculated risk for them. An event they didn’t foresee.
For them, the real fear is the thought of failure and regrets of not doing the things that could go beyond their limits and potential capabilities. It’s the thought of giving up and not being a strong enough, wise enough, quick enough and sharp enough person that they wanted to be.
So how do we prevent these miscalculations? You must know yourself inside-out, from your body to your mind. Overcome weaknesses and focus on strengths, have control over your actions, train your senses and reflexes, be analytical in your calculations, wise with your emotions, quick in your decisions, enrich yourself with different skill and, be enthusiastic yet calm.
