The fear that drives perfection

We are all scared of failing, of making mistakes, of loosing something we really cherish. Because of this fear, many of us even give up trying. It is like being afraid of hurting the ones we love, so we stop loving all together.

I learnt that everyone is scared, nervous, skeptical and sometimes shaken. But not everyone learns to master their fears and turn them to their advantage. The ones who do, use their fear as their strength to plan better, prepare harder and as a result deliver better. 

Fear is a healthy sign that represents gaps we need to close, things we need to be cautious about and areas we need to learn. If we can identify our fears, we can learn to make them our biggest advantage. 

The Batman was scared of Bats as a child, but when he was able to identify his fear, he could use the exact same fear as his most powerful weapon. It is all work of fiction but the movies have a lot to learn from. Thanks to a dear friend who introduced us to to them, again!
