I once heard fear (F-E-A-R) described as False Events Appearing Real. Fear is a basic human emotion, sometimes keeping us from harm. Sometimes, though, fear hinders our progress and can actually lead to our making bad decisions. Ever know someone who was so afraid of what the test would show that they avoided going to the doctor until it was too late? Or someone who won’t fly in an airplane but refuses to wear a seatbelt in the car?
