According to an ancient Indian fable, a mouse was in constant distress because of its fear of the cat. A magician took pity on it and turned it into a cat. But then it became afraid of the dog. So the magician turned it into a dog. Then it began to fear the panther. So the magician turned it into a panther, whereupon it was full of fear for the hunter. At this point the magician gave up, and turned it into a mouse again saying, "Nothing I do for you is going to be of any help because you have the heart of a mouse”.
Many of us are not successful because we are living our fears instead of living our dreams. You need not be afraid of your fears they are not there to scare you, they are there to let you know that something is worth it, wrote Joybell. Remember your biggest fear carries your highest growth. The moment you overcome fear you see yourself standing at the top of the mountain from where you see the other side all you need for your life.
“Everything you want is on the other side of fear”
- Jack Canfield
