It's a simple statement, but powerful message. It is telling us that we need to embrace fear. We need to recognize that fear is a barrier that prevents us from reaching our true potential and purpose.

We learned to fear as children. We would get hurt and a parent or care giver quickly rushes to us to make sure we were okay. Often that lead to the tears; reaction of the adult, their concern is what caused us to think that we were not okay. We didn't know what was wrong, but they were upset so it must be bad.

We also learn to fear through embarrassment. If you ask a kindergartner a question they will throw out all kinds of responses. They are creative and divergent thinkers because they haven't been conditioned with "right" and "wrong". As children get older and they realize there are "right" and "wrong" answers, the creative and divergent thinking reduces.

The biggest lesson I have learned over the last year is to be vulnerable. That is the only way to be a true student of personal development. It is difficult because we have learned to fear failure, take risks, and get out of our comfort zone. If we never get out of our comfort zone we will not grow and become better versions of ourselves.

If you are fearful of following your dream, think about why. Look at it from different perspectives and address the concerns one by one. This mitigates or lowers the risk.

You can lower risk through research, experimentation to see what works and what doesn't work on a smaller scale, and talk to people or read about people who have accomplished similar goals.

Tear down the barrier, embrace your fear and use it as motivation. If you think about fear differently and use it to learn and grow you will be able to accomplish anything you put your mind to as it is all about mindset.
