What would you do if you weren't afraid?

After watching Candy's talk I had this interesting comment in my mind: Being afraid stops us from dreaming and from reaching our goals. How many times while we're doing a big project we've asked ourselves: What if it doesn't works? What if it's a total disaster? What would the people say about it? And those kinds of questions automatically makes us feel bad and, sometimes, we quit that project. What do we get from this? Not being able to reach that goal, all thanks to fear.
What do you think?

    Mar 4 2013: If you are not a little afraid then you have no appreciation of what is happening. With no fear I would probally do something really stupid ... that could result in anything from getting my butt kicked to death.

    I must say that I think you mean irrational fears.
    • Mar 5 2013: Exactly. Fear and Pain are there to protect you.

      So ... fears that do not protect you.
