It can be subtle, fear, but incredibly effective in keeping us where we are. I don’t mean Big Fear derived from disastrous life change, I mean the small, nagging and unhealthy fear that is based on nothing more than our own imaginings. It  often goes unnoticed, but it stamps on ambitions and creativity.

Proper fear is there for a reason, and it is worthy of our respect, it can be seen as an ally. But when it creeps in without us realising – influencing our choices and shaping our behaviour –  it is no friend at all.

This sort of fear slips in under our radar (in some cases its been then since before radar was invented), so we don’t notice it happening. Spotting it means we can choose to ignore it, or overcome it altogether.

Oh dear! Am I beginning to sound like some smug and self-styled you-can-do-anything-you-want-in-life guru?

I hope not, but I’m a bit afraid that I might be.
