Fear might be a good thing

Fear is an important reflex. In the past, and in certain situations, it tells us to flee. It provides us with the tools to survive horrific and dangerous situations.
Today, however, for most of us, we feel fear when we have to give a presentation, ask someone out for a date, or sing karaoke (I love karaoke). While these feel very scary, they are not likely to injure us in anyway. So what purpose is the fear serving?
None really and it might be holding you back.
My friend Chris Guillebeau (who I have never me, but am convinced we would be friends if I did) reminds us to do something that scares you every day. I think that is great advice!
Chris has a great blog about living a remarkable life. If you're needing a lift, check it out.
