Allowing Fear To Decide

The problem with inaction due to fear is later you will be reactive because of fear.

Allowing fear to be an excuse for your inaction leads you to wait until the last minute. When the last minute arrives and a decision is necessary, fear guides you to make a rash and sometimes emotional decision. It was probably a decision you weren't wanting to make.

You could have made some changes in the past, yet comfort prevailed. You could have set some goals in the past, yet fear prevailed. Now you're backed into a corner you knew was coming. In the heat of the moment you are now going to react, and most likely you will do what you have been doing all along. You'll make a decision based on fear.

It doesn't have to be this way. When you can see you need to change, make a change. When you know the evils are no longer worth suffering through, tolerate them no longer.

It's easier said than done, I know.

Someone needs to say it though, or due to fear you may never change.
