More quotes about:

This is the source.

Having conceived of his purpose, a man should mentally mark out a straight pathway to its achievement, looking neither to the right nor the left. Doubts and fears should be rigorously excluded; they are disintegrating elements which break up the straight line of effort, rendering it crooked, ineffectual, useless. Thoughts of doubt and fear never accomplish anything, and never can. They always lead to failure. Purpose, energy, power to do, and all strong thoughts cease when doubt and fear creep in. James Allen Quote Details

More quotes about:

More quotes about:

Just as your muscles will atrophy if you don't regularly stress them, your courage will atrophy if you don't consistently challenge yourself to face down your fears. In the absence of this kind of conscious conditioning, you'll automatically become weak in both body and mind. If you aren't regularly exercising your courage, then you are strengthening your fear by default; there is no middle ground. Just as your muscles automatically atrophy from lack of use, so your courage will automatically decay in the absence of conscious conditioning. Steve Pavlina Quote Details

More quotes about:

The most difficult thing is the decision to act; the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward. Amelia Earhart Quote Details

More quotes about:

There are two types of mistakes: mistakes of ambition and mistakes of sloth.

The first is the result of a decision to act - to do something. This type of mistake is made with incomplete information, as it's impossible to have all the facts beforehand. This is to be encouraged. Fortune favors the bold.

The second is the result of a decision of sloth - to not do something - wherein we refuse to change a bad situation out of fear despite having all the facts. This is how learning experiences become terminal punishments, bad relationships become bad marriages, and poor job choices become lifelong prison sentences.
Timothy Ferriss Quote Details

More quotes about:

This is the source.

Worry is merely a sustained form of fear caused by indecision. The only real antidote to worry is purposeful action. Get so busy doing something about your situation that you don't have time to worry. As you take action, your confidence, courage and sense of control will return and wipe away your fears. Brian Tracy Quote Details

More quotes about:

Fear is an emotion manufactured in the imagination. The best proof of this is found by observing the differences in what people are afraid of. If fear was instinctive, genetic, or the product of rational thought, shouldn't we all fear pretty much the same things? Clancy Cross Quote Details

More quotes about:

Don't waste life in doubts and fears; spend yourself on the work before you, well assured that the right performance of this hour's duties will be the best preparation for the hours and ages that will follow it. Ralph Waldo Emerson Quote Details

More quotes about:

If you're never scared or embarrassed or hurt, it means you never take any chances. Julia Sorel Quote Details

More quotes about:

Let the body avoid discomfort (if it can), and if it feels it, say so. But the soul is what feels fear and pain, and what conceives of them in the first place, and it suffers nothing. Marcus Aurelius Quote Details

More quotes about:

This is the source.

To fear pain is to fear something that's bound to happen, the world being what it is - and that again is blasphemy. While if you pursue pleasure, you can hardly avoid wrongdoing - which is manifestly blasphemous. Marcus Aurelius Quote Details

More quotes about:

This is the source.

Isn't it better to do what's up to you - like a free man - than to be passively controlled by what isn't, like a slave or beggar? And what makes you think the gods don't care about what's up to us.

Start praying like this and you'll see.

Not "some way to sleep with her" - but a way to stop wanting to.

Not "some way to get rid of him" - but a way to stop trying.

Not "some way to save my child" - but a way to lose your fear.

Redirect your prayers like that, and watch what happens.
Marcus Aurelius Quote Details

Stop whatever you're doing for a moment and ask yourself: Am I afraid of death because I won't be able to do this anymore? Marcus Aurelius Quote Details

Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength. Corrie Ten Boom Quote Details

More quotes about:

Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life. Meaning does not lie in things. Meaning lies in us. Marianne Williamson Quote Details

More quotes about:

I tell my kids, what is the dif­fer­ence between a hero and a cow­ard? What is the dif­fer­ence between being yel­low and being brave? No dif­fer­ence. Only what you do. They both feel the same. They both fear dying and get­ting hurt. The man who is yel­low refus­es to face up to what he's got to face. The hero is more dis­ci­plined and he fights those feel­ings off and he does what he has to do. But they both feel the same, the hero and the cow­ard. Peo­ple who watch you judge you on what you do, not how you feel. Cus D'Amato Quote Details

More quotes about:

Courage is an inner resolution to go forward despite obstacles; Cowardice is submissive surrender to circumstances. Courage breeds creativity; Cowardice represses fear and is mastered by it. Cowardice asks the question, is it safe? Expediency ask the question, is it politic? Vanity asks the question, is it popular?

But conscience ask the question, is it right? And there comes a time when we must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because it is right.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Quote Details

More quotes about:

Fear spreads fast, it is contagious. Doesn't have anything to do with IQ. Confidence only comes back one at a time, not en masse. There are periods when fear paralyzes the investment world. You don't want to owe money at that time, and if you have money then you want to buy at those times. Warren Buffett Quote Details
