Use your sword!

I have said it and many others have said it .. “Be fearless in pursuit of your dreams” .. what does that mean? Fear is something our mind creates when we encounter discomfort.
.
I was thinking about this and how to use logic to defeat FEAR. How can I calm my brain .. when FEAR kicks in? For the past 6 months, I am been working on a new venture investment company. The idea is to crowd source investment money into a pool BUT invest in minority owned startups. There are a TON of hurdles when starting a new venture BUT your race, gender or place of birth shouldn’t be a hurdle. But FEAR kicks in every time I think through the details. FEAR it might fail. FEAR of taking other people’s money. FEAR. .
.
I came across this quote. “A sword in the hand of a coward is useless.” .. .
.
I have all the knowledge, skills, experiences, all the common sense and book smart. I have hands on experience .. THATS MY SWORD. I will use my sword to cut down my FEARS. If it is not enough, I will seek help, study more, get more experience and sharpen my sword. Than, I will try again. .
.
You have a sword too. One that empowers you. That is the way to beat your FEARS. Sharpen your SWORD.
