Fear is Good

Here’s a quote that motivates me to continue writing my book about being the best self and about reading emotions almost every day. I feel fear, I feel self-doubt but I know these are good indicators.

“Fear is good. Like self-doubt, fear is an indicator. Fear tells us what we have to do. Remember our rule of thumb: The more scared we are of a work or calling, the more sure we can be that we have to do it. Resistance is experienced as fear; the degree of fear equates to the strength of Resistance.

Never Explain

Never explain — your friends do not need it, and your enemies will not believe you anyway.” –Elbert Hubbard

This is one of my favorite quotes. I try not to explain anything unless someone expressly asks me to do it. Even then, I only explain if I see continuous buy-in and understanding as I go along.
