A Japanese quote that was also the theme for a novel we read in class, Touching Spirit Bear. We spent an entire day just discussing this quote and listening to each other speak of the quote's life application.
Fear is perhaps the greatest barrier to success! Fear can be a motivational factor if it is controlled and focused in the correct way. More often than not we allow our fear to paralyze us so that we cannot act. You are in control of your own emotions! Move forward in spite of fear. Don't allow it to freeze you and the great potential you have to design your future and better the world. - By: Christopher A. Pearsall, Motivational Writer
