Does fear drive us in a way we don’t understand?
Are the police afraid of who or what they might encounter?
Are athletes afraid that they won’t play their best?
Are firefighters afraid they won’t be able to put out the fire?
Are doctors afraid that after they give their patients treatments it won’t work?
Are musicians afraid that they won’t play the right note or forget the whole song?
Are surgeons afraid they won’t be able to complete the operation?
Are writers afraid that their work will get too much criticism?
Are these worries why we have motivation? Because we want to prove these fears wrong, and be able to say “See? That was nothing.”
Is fear why we succeed?
