What stops you? What stops you from achieving, from manifesting that which you want? What stops you, gets in your way, weighs you down?
Whatever name you put to “it,” “it” is fear: fear of failure, fear of success, fear of disappointment, fear of getting hurt, of rejection, of illness, of death, or life.

10 #Fear Quotes
Men go to far greater lengths to avoid what they fear than to obtain what they desire. ~ Dan Brown, The Da Vinci Code
There are two kinds of fears: rational and irrational- or in simpler terms, fears that make sense and fears that don’t. ~ Lemony Snicket
Laughter is poison to fear. ~ George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones
There is no beauty in sadness. No honor in suffering. No growth in fear. No relief in hate. It’s just a waste of perfectly good happiness.~ Katerina Stoykova Klemer
There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life. ~ John Lennon
The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek. ~ Joseph Campbell
Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity. ~ Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
Have no fear of perfection—you’ll never reach it. ~ Salvador Dali
Anxiety is the dizziness of freedom. ~ Soren Kierkegaard
I must say a word about fear. It is life’s only true opponent. Only fear can defeat life. It is a clever, treacherous adversary, how well I know. It has no decency, respects no law or convention, shows no mercy. It goes for your weakest spot, which it finds with unnerving ease. It begins in your mind, always … so you must fight hard to express it. You must fight hard to shine the light of words upon it. Because if you don’t, if your fear becomes a wordless darkness that you avoid, perhaps even manage to forget, you open yourself to further attacks of fear because you never truly fought the opponent who defeated you. ~ Yann Martel, Life of Pi
