“Fear is the most important emotion we have.”- Seth Godin

You can overcome fear. You can overcome fear by countering it with love. Only love can conquer fear. When you face fear, don’t give up on yourself. Fight your way forward. Because fear wants you to stay where you are, not moving forward. Don’t let fear be the obstacle standing in your way to your success. Conquer it with love. Conquer it with faith. Conquer it with passion.

“Never be afraid.”

You can conquer your fears by acknowledging them. They are real, but don’t let them control you. Use the power of love to conquer your fears. When you focus on love, when you focus on positive things, when you acknowledge your fears, they will disappear. To successfully manage your fears, you must keep your mind clean. Do not keep negative thoughts in your mind. Instead, occupy your mind with positive thoughts. Remember, “You become what you think about every day.” Think about love, not fear.

4 Ways To Change Your Life, According To Nelson Mandela

When it comes to change, we don’t want to hear it. We don’t want to talk about it. We don’t want to experience it.

If you want to live a fulfilled life, you can’t do it without change. As I write this note, I am changing. I am Learning. I am developing myself.

Don’t fight change. Change is not about changing your physical body. Change is about changing your soul. Change is not about you. It is about your soul. It is about your inner life. It is about your spiritual life.

To change your life, according to Nelson Mandela, you must do these four things:

You must conduct yourself with morality. Mandela said, “Those who conduct themselves with morality, integrity and consistency need not to fear the forces of inhumanity and cruelty.”

You must dedicate yourself to what you do. In Mandela’s words, “Everyone can rise above their circumstances and achieve success if they are dedicated to and passionate about what they do.”

You must conquer your fear. According to Mandela, “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”

You must learn from pleasant and unpleasant experiences. “It is in the character of growth that we should learn from both pleasant and unpleasant experiences.”

Change is the way.
