What do you think of fear? Do we need? Can you take it out of your life?

i believe fear is useless. I believe it slows down your responses to situations lowers confidence, and fogs up the logic of situations.
When you're faced with a threat and you call Mr. Fear do you think he'll help you better than Mr. Willpower.
And just because you don't have fear doesn't you're Mr. Big Stuff,
or Mr. Hotshot. It means you can live more peacefully, not thinking about all the bad things that can happen to you and get ready for them. I don't feed into fear, I repel it.

    Mar 22 2013: There are many people who have a strongly vested interest in selling fear to as many of us as possible...it is the most effective way to make us controllable. As others have stated, there are few natural fears and many culturally induced ones. I say heed well the difference and distrust persons who too often counsel you to be fearful.
