Why Do We Let Fear Control Our Decisions?

  Why do we let fear control our decisions when it comes to decisions like what job to apply for what person to talk to, what path to take, what college course to attend, what business to start, when to learn to drive etc what is it that makes us decide I can't do this it is just too scary. What is it that makes us stop in our tracks and our heart start to beat faster we start to sweat our minds start to run a mile a minute we get that fight or flight feeling.

H.P.Lovecraft wrote "The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown" Dorothy Thompson wrote "Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live"

 Why Do We Let Fear Control Our Decisions?

So we go through the motions of being scared and somehow get ourselves through some of the hurdles, not all of them mind you because we will always have things we won't be able to do because we let fear dictate our next move, but there are some that we overcome for example you apply for a job you didn't think you were good enough to do and you get through the interviews with flying colours and get offered the job then up it pops fear again and you say "what if I can't do it" Why is it something we have to conquer over and over again and again all through our lives that hardly seems like a fare fight now does it, but then this is fear we are talking about and fear doesn't put up a fare fight. At this, point, I don't know if we will ever have an answer as to why we let fear control our decisions but i do know one thing we will never stop trying to conquer them.

"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 fear, but he who conquers that fear"  Nelson Mandella
